These are important results, and they can be a big help in making sure that you and your loved ones are empowered with knowledge—knowledge of what might put you at risk for DVT so that you can reduce that risk. Keep a copy of your results and give another copy to your healthcare professional. And be sure to have a conversation with your healthcare professional about your risk of DVT.
