Does anyone else carry this gene? Didn’t know I had it myself till about 5 years ago - it can cause blood clots. It seems to be passed down through the female line so I would have got this through my Mum (who never knew she had it!). Have never had a clot myself but knowing that I carry it I can protect against clotting when necessary (like long haul flights, for example). Anyone else with it?
I have the opposite, inherited from my father, who had severe Haemophilia B. I have low clotting factor of 28%, should be between 50 and 100. I am on the Rare Disease Register. I can't take NSAIDs and have to be very careful with any drug I am given. Before any medical procedure I have to be given replacement "clotting factor".
