Hello Rahmadani, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service to consult about health.
Is clotted blood you mean clotted blood?
The process of clotting in the blood or in medical terms, the coagulation process is a fairly complex process in which blood forms clots (blood clots). The goal is to close and heal the wound so that bleeding can decrease and stop. This complex blood clotting process certainly cannot be seen with the naked eye, because it is so complex and complex and involves blood clotting factors.
Blood clots that occur when you have a transfusion need to be checked / tested further in the laboratory to find out the exact cause. Is it only because of the clotting factor of the blood, or there are disturbances in the platelets, or are there other factors that accelerate the blood clotting. Other factors that can affect blood clotting quickly are:
Use of certain drugs
cholesterol levels that are too high
Blood clots that are too fast can increase the risk of health problems such as the risk of stroke, disorders of the heart and blood vessels.
For more details about your health condition, you should consult and check directly with an internal medicine doctor to find out your health status. There may also be additional examinations in addition to basic examinations such as medical interviews and physical examinations. Additional tests that may be done include complete laboratories such as complete blood counts, blood clots, etc.
Meanwhile, to prevent other symptoms that can interfere with your health, you can do some simple things at home, including:
enough fluid intake with a consumption of approximately 2L of water
choose fibrous foods from vegetables and fruits
avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
avoid staying up late and high pressure / stressors
consult a doctor before consuming certain drugs
