The D-dimer test is crucial for detecting the presence of blood clots. At IntroLab, our skilled staff employs various methods, including immunological tests, to precisely determine the D-dimer concentration in blood. With a commitment to reliability and accuracy, IntroLab is your trusted partner for quality D-dimer test results.

What is D-dimer?

D-dimer is a laboratory biomarker used for detecting the presence or absence of blood clots in the body. It is a fragment of fibrin, a key protein in blood clot formation. When fibrin breaks down, several fragments, including D-dimer, are released.

Elevated levels of D-dimer indicate active blood coagulation and the breakdown of clots. This is valuable in diagnosing and monitoring conditions such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and other thromboembolic events.

How is D-dimer measured?

D-dimer is usually measured through a blood test in a laboratory. Elevated levels are not exclusively indicative of thrombosis; they can also be seen in conditions such as inflammation, trauma, surgery, or pregnancy. As a result, test results are often used as an initial screening tool, and additional diagnostic methods might be necessary to confirm the presence of a thrombosis.

When is testing indicated?

Testing is employed for various reasons and is helpful in the diagnosis and monitoring of different conditions:

  • Suspected Thrombosis: D-dimer is commonly used to exclude the presence of thrombosis, particularly deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). A negative result can suggest a low risk of thrombosis.
  • Risk Assessment in Suspected Cases: For individuals with symptoms suggestive of thrombosis, such as swelling, leg pain, or difficulty in breathing, D-dimer testing can aid in risk assessment and guide the need for further diagnostic testing.
  • Monitoring Treatment: Test can be utilized to monitor the effectiveness of anticoagulant therapy. A decrease in D-dimer levels during treatment can signify a positive response to the therapy.
  • Risk Assessment for Other Conditions: D-dimer testing can also be instrumental in assessing thrombosis risk in various conditions like pregnancy, inflammation, cancer, and the postoperative period.

The decision to perform this test should be based on a combination of clinical symptoms, medical history, and physician evaluation. It is not a standalone diagnostic tool but a part of the comprehensive clinical evaluation.
