Your blood clots too quickly if you have a blood clotting condition. A hypercoagulable state, or thrombophilia, is another name for this disorder. Your body creates a blood clot to stop the bleeding when you are injured. Your liver produces clotting factors (proteins) that bind to blood platelets to create a blood clot (coagulate). Normal coagulation is crucial for halting bleeding from a cut and triggering the healing process.
A genetic or acquired condition called a hypercoagulable disorder raises the possibility of abnormal blood clot formation. When a vessel that supplies blood is damaged, blood either leaks outside the body or enters the tissues. Through a sophisticated clotting process, the body prevents blood loss. When a stage in the process of coagulation goes awry, hypercoagulable diseases result. Blood clots may form improperly and/or excessively if the coagulation process is faulty. Blood clots have the potential to separate, go to another area of the body, and block blood vessels there. A person may be predisposed to hypercoagulable conditions due to specific genetic alterations.
Liver disease and various malignancies are additional conditions that might result in hypercoagulable diseases. Medication management is sometimes possible for hypercoagulable conditions. If you’ve already had blood clots or have this illness, your risk of getting one increases. Even if you don’t have a blood clotting condition, pregnancy increases blood volume and pressure, which increases your risk of developing a blood clot five times.
The interaction of blood vessels, platelets, and coagulation factors causes blood to clot. To prevent coagulation from happening when it is not required, coagulation components circulate in the blood in their inactive form. Coagulation factor VII attaches to the exposed vascular wall cells in response to an injury, activating the coagulation cascade. This enables the following activation of the other clotting factors, which in turn causes thrombin (factor II) to develop. In order to stabilize the platelet plug, thrombin transforms fibrinogen into fibrin (factor I), which assembles into a densely knit mesh.
Conditions that are inherited hypercoagulable include:
- Leiden factor V (the most prevalent).
- mutation in the prothrombin gene (G20210A).
- deficiencies in naturally occurring proteins (such as antithrombin, protein C, and protein S) that stop blood from clotting.
- elevated fibrinogen concentrations or abnormal fibrinogen.
- increased levels of factor VIII as well as factors IX and XI.
- abnormal system for fibrinolysis.
Signs and Symptoms:
The signs and symptoms of hypercoagulable conditions can change depending on where a blood clot is located in your body. Some signs could be:
- You may have a deep vein thrombosis if your leg is swollen, painful, or hurts.
- Chest pain and shortness of breath could be signs of a pulmonary embolism.
- chest pains.
Diagnosis of Hypercoagulable Disorder:
Your healthcare professional can assess your condition with the aid of blood tests. Tests for hypercoagulable disorders include:
- PT-INR: If you take warfarin, the prothrombin time (PT) test aids your doctor in keeping track of your health. Your results will help your doctor determine whether you need a new dose and how quickly your blood is clotting.
- An indicator of how long it takes for your blood to clot is the activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT). If you’re taking heparin, your doctor uses this test to keep an eye on your health.
- Test for fibrinogen.
- (CBC) Complete blood count.
Homeopathic Treatment for Hypercoagulable Disorder:
Homeopathic treatments for hypercoagulable disorder aid in the treatment of its symptoms. These medications can be used in conjunction with traditional treatments to moderate symptoms and promote progressive healing. It is important to keep in mind that Hypercoagulable might have negative effects, so any homeopathic treatment should begin after a thorough case study. It is highly advised to seek prompt assistance from conventional forms of therapy in acute cases where symptoms point to a risk of serious illnesses like heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, etc. When there are no signs pointing to a medical emergency and the condition is mild to moderate with few clots, homeopathic medication should be chosen.
- The medication Bothrops Lanceolatus is useful in situations when blood clots are prone to developing. It is notably beneficial for blood clots that develop in leg veins. Additionally, it is effective in treating leg and toe gangrene patients. It also discusses clot-related side effects such as hemiplegia, which causes one side of the body to be paralyzed, and aphasia, which mostly results in communication loss following a stroke.
- The most common indication for Apis Mellifica is leg blood vessel Hypercoagulable disorder. The signs of needing it include reddish-bluish blotches on the legs as well as fever, soreness, and immobility. The next sign is a pain in the left leg, which may be shooting, burning, or sewing.
- The plant Arnica Montana, sometimes known as leopard’s bane, is the source of the natural remedy known as arnica. The Compositae family includes this plant. This medication has a reputation for acting quickly to dissolve blood clots, particularly those in the eye following retinal hemorrhage. The next indication is paralysis caused by a stroke.
- Secale Cor is a medication that is well-suited for abdominal vascular hypercoagulability. It is also suggested for treating cases of gangrene. It is helpful for foot gangrene. Here, the foot is experiencing severe searing and tearing pain. The next sign is abrupt limb coldness, along with gangrene. In such circumstances, the limbs seem dark gray, and there may be a loss of sensation as a result.
- Phosphorus is highly recommended for the formation of blood clots in retinal arteries. It is an excellent medication for treating glaucoma symptoms.
- A popular treatment for limb Hypercoagulable disorder is Vipera. The blueness of the lower limbs is evident and necessary. Lower limbs dangling down cause agony and give the impression that they are about to explode. As a result, it is desirable to maintain raised limbs.
- Mary’s Thistle seeds are used in the preparation of Carduus Marianus. The Compositae family includes this plant. It is taken into account when the liver and portal venous system is compromised.
