A D-dimer is a blood test to help evaluate for possible blood clots. A D-dimer measures the tendency of blood to clot inappropriately. A D-dimer may be used to evaluate possible health threats such as a stroke, DVT (deep vein thrombosis), PE (pulmonary embolism) and arterial plaque rupture.
This blood test is used to measure total circulating estrogens. The three major naturally occurring estrogens are present in significant quantities in blood. They are estradiol (E2), estrone (E1) and estriol (E3). Because estradiol and estrone fluctuate during a womanâ€™s cycle and menopause, some providers prefer this test when evaluating estrogen levels. Estrogenâ€™s role in supporting health and well-being is as significant as it is diverse. To name a few, estrogen affects emotions moods, attention and language skills.
ABO Grouping is the classification system used to determine blood types. This system is used because antibodies needed for testing are consistent and naturally present in the serum of those blood types. The potential blood types are: O positive, O negative, A positive, A negative, B positive, B negative, AB positive and AB negative. The universal donor is O negative. The universal recipient is AB positive.
This test measures Thyroxine T4 (Free). Thyroxine (T4) Free measures the free or unbound (bioavailable) thyroxine levels in the bloodstream.
