A 46-year-old Russian woman with complaints of constant weakness and fatigue was diagnosed with a deadly disease – thrombophilia.

A 46-year-old resident of Rostov came to the doctor complaining of constant fatigue and weakness. Examinations revealed she had problems with her blood.

The patient was referred to a hemostasiologist by a gynecologist to obtain an assessment of the thrombogenic risk of menopausal hormone therapy. It is prescribed, among other things, for the correction of disorders during menopause.

The woman, on the direction of a doctor, took tests to determine blood clotting parameters. She was diagnosed with thrombinemia. This is a condition of the circulatory system in which the increased level of thrombus formation is compensated by increased activity of the anticoagulant system.

The women's relatives suffered from thrombophilia – this was the first aggravating factor. The second – the woman had been smoking for more than 15 years.

After further examination, a diagnosis was made – thrombophilia of complex origin. In such patients, the body is predisposed to the formation of blood clots. This can cause the development of deep vein thrombosis, heart attack, stroke and other deadly pathologies.

 The woman was given recommendations: first of all, be sure to stop smoking, see a therapist, regularly measure your blood pressure, limit your consumption of salty foods and follow a low-cholesterol diet, doctors said.
