    Relationship between thyroid hormones and fibrinogen levels.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10636459

    Low serum thyrotropin is associated with high plasma fibrinogen.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16303831


    It seems that hypercoagulation has a big impact on your thyroid. From a CFS perspective, it is known that thyroid issues are commonplace. I wonder if many of the symptoms could be attributed to this?

    In case your wondering a natural way to address this, fibrinolytic enzymes like serrapeptase, nattokinase, and lumbrokinase can help breakdown and dissolve excess fibrin. In particular, lumbrokinase seems to be the most effective.

    Have you tried anything to lower your fibrinogen? Lumbrokinase is very powerful for this.

    Also, antiphospholipid antibodies can cause high fibrinogen.

    Yeah, I know it should be decently high dose on an empty stomach at least 2-3x a day, for a few months.

    Yeah, I know, it seems like a never ending trial of supplements.

    I was sad to hear David Berg retired. What did he say the difference between hypercoag and fibrinogen were? I though they were the same.

    He also looked at my ISAC test. It tests 4 different aspects of hypercoag as those likely to be found in ME/CFS patients. I "qualified" and did 7 months of low dose, low molecular weight heparin injections followed by regular nattokinase. This helped my general condition though I was not, at that time, at the disabled level.

    Do you know if there is anyone left who can interpret this panel? I just had it run a few weeks ago, still waiting for the results.

    A knowledgeable doctor--though I don't know who that would be. My doctor worked with Dr. Berg to interpret it for me.
