D-dimer

d dimerD-dimer is a marker of thrombogenesis and fibrinolysis. An increased level of D-dimer is found in numerous states associated with activation of coagulation (disseminated intravascular coagulation syndrome, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary thromboembolism, massive tissue damage or surgery, heart failure, infections, inflammations, neoplastic conditions). Despite the limited specificity of the test, the determination of D-Dimer has advantages over the measurement of other markers of coagulation and fibrinolysis, since the D-dimer formes only on the condition if both processes take place. Thus, he level of D-dimer does not change in primary fibrinolysis, dysfibrinogenemia.

In pregnant women, from early pregnancy, the level of D-dimer in the blood gradually increases. By the end of pregnancy, the indicators can be 3 to 4 times higher than the baseline. Significantly higher values of D-dimer are observed in women with a complicated course of pregnancy (with gestosis, preeclampsia),as well as in pregnant women with diabetes, kidney disease. An increase in the level of D-dimer is found in people older than 80 years.

The blood sample for test must be taken on an empty stomach.
