Blood Viscosity During Pregnancy?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask if every pregnant woman who is positive for blood viscosity should be given a blood thinner injection (heparin / levonox), is there no other way than injections?
Miscarriage in pregnancy or commonly referred to as abortion is a fetal release at less than 20 weeks of gestation. Miscarriage can be caused due to various causes, one of which can be caused by a high blood viscosity level. This can cause reduced blood circulation in the fetus, and possibly can cause blockage of the placenta.
If this happens, treatment with anticoagulant drugs such as heparin is usually necessary. Heparin can be safely used in pregnancy at a certain dose that will be determined by an obstetrician and usually requires co-care with an internal medicine specialist.
Treatment using heparin is the safest method for dealing with blood viscosity during pregnancy. You can discuss this therapy with a specialist who treats your wife, so that the doctor can determine the right therapy according to your wife's clinical condition.
