Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

If clinically a thrombosis is not suspected or not likely then a D-dimer value less than or equal to 500 ng/mL FEU can be used to exclude deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). So, if your clinical score is low then this value makes the possibility of a clot less likely.

Take care.

Please let me know if you have further queries or unanswered questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
