Thick Blood: Common Symptoms

You may have thick blood (also known as hypercoagulability) if you are experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • Abnormal appearance of thickened blood when you’re having your blood drawn
  • Slow bleeding when you are cut
  • Widespread nutritional and hormonal deficiencies
  • Repeated miscarriages
  • Presence of one or more chronic conditions, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Candida, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome

In the event of thick blood, the following problems may exist:

  • Disruption of the production and function of the body’s natural blood thinners
  • Difficulty treating any bacterial, viral, or fungal infections
  • Disruption of oxygen and nutrient delivery throughout the body
  • Increased burden on the heart to pump thicker blood which may lead to an increased risk of heart attack and/or stroke. It is now suggested that thick blood is a better indicator of the risk of heart attack and stroke than cholesterol levels. However, testing for thick blood is not commonly performed in conventional medicine.
