“I feel like I am hyper coagulated..”

Someone mentions that to me. My initial response is simple… don’t jump to conclusions without supporting lab results. Without lab results, you may feel the same from any of many condition that produces hypoxia (low oxygen delivery). Hyper-coagulation is one possible cause there are others. This is a quick list of items to get objective measures from..

  • First, get and monitor your saturated oxygen level. A lot of people have the Fingertip Pulse Oximeters. They are cheap and often under $20. With COVID persisting, they should be in every home first aid kit!
    • Both my wife and I wear a watch that records Saturated O2 every 15 minutes and we can view our history on our phone. See this post.
Fingertip Pulse Oximeter, Blood Oxygen Saturation Monitor (SpO2) with Pulse Rate Measurements and Pulse Bar Graph, Portable Digital Reading LED Display, Batteries and Carry Case Included

Bottom line: Get lab results when possible and do not speculate. I recall that some supplements will improve certain types of hypercoagulation and make other types worse. Act from objective knowledge and not speculation.
