I am in the ' won't prescribe anticoagulants ' bracket. I am on Clopidogrel and twice GP says that is good enough as it acts as an anticoagulant.
When I checked on CHADSVASC there is no question regarding family history.
My mother who had 2 DVT and Gmother died from lung clot. Mother also had slow /thick blood, whatever that means and vascular problems. She like me is Rhesus, if that's relevant ....
So, are past generations health not relevant ? If this does predispose me should there not be that question there ?
Currently, based on female and age I have a 1.3 risk. Clearly with family history I am hitting heady heights on the scale.
If it isn't relevant that's fine, but am genuinely anxious if it does because I feel I already feel under protected and this really would put me at huge risk.
