Chronic coagulation abnormality is one of the dominant treatable test results with CFIDS and FM. There are many type of coagulation defects (often inherited). The leading researcher is David Berg of Hemex Laboratories. The published results are:

  • 80% with 2 or more abnormalities
  • 18% with 1 abnormality

The experience of our family practice MD on patients with CFIDS and FM diagnosis in her practice tested for coagulation has been 100% with abnormalities. My wife and I were the first patients she tried the tests on, since then she has become a believer in the test and the treatments.

Factors of Coagulation

Approximately 30% of the blood is involved with coagulation. This is a complex process involving about 20 different plasma proteins (blood coagulation factors).  Conventional medical treatment has been focused on bleeding aspects of coagulation and not excessive coagulation.

In some cases, there are no problems with the coagulation factors, rather a problem with undoing coagulation when it occurs (as a response to injury or infection).
