you have a high amount of clotting factors in your blood, this isnt abnormal or anything to worry about, you may however need to thin your blood slighty by modifying your diet, ie olive oil, red wine in small amounts etc

Why does my blood tend to clot quickly? I went to take a test and the nurse was injecting something into my vein. When she found the vein and pulled the vhamber back blood came in and then she lost it. Within minutes the blood that was already in the syringe clogged the needle and she had to take it out. Is that normal? Sincerely, Kelly

My 4 year old son has a long history of illness since he was 7 months old. He is not getting better and has been much worse since his last surgery for tubes and cauterization of the lower turbinates. He has been treated with vancomycin twice now and it seems to be the only medicine he reacts to. Just recently we got back some bad blood tests (high white blood cell counts, really high platelet counts, normal range red blood cells, high MCV, High Lymphs absolute, high monocytes absolute, immunoglobulin is low. We are waiting on approval from our insurance to get immunoglobulin infusions done on our son. We do not have a diagnosis other than they say his immune system is low. Any thoughts of what could be going on? We are really worried!
