Blood Clotting Disorders

Blood clotting disorders are conditions in which blood clots form too easily or don’t dissolve properly. They can be caused by problems with the blood, blood vessels, medications, or underlying medical conditions. Blood clotting disorders can be acquired or genetic. Acquired blood clotting disorders can be caused by smoking, obesity, or certain diseases such as atherosclerosis. Treatment for blood clotting disorders depends on the cause and the severity. Medicines that thin the blood are used as routine treatment for blood clotting disorders.
