Thrombophilia can cause blood clots or deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Genetic testing for thrombophilia can determine whether you have
one or more of the most common forms of inherited thrombophilia:
factor V Leiden or a prothrombin mutation. These mutations can increase
your risk for blood clots up to 80 times. This knowledge can save
your life because knowing that you carry a gene can help you prevent
blood clots by implementing preventative measures on long flights,
during surgery, with medications and by adopting a healthy lifestyle.
