Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Please upload your blood test results. Are you saying that your blood will easily clot? What medications are you taking every day?

I’m taking a cholesterol pill dayley, that’s it
Doctor: Dr. Ravoof, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

Potassium citrate and water will not prevent the clotting of blood. There are specific medications such as warfarin or aspirin which your doctor can prescribe and which you need to take every day to prevent blood clotting. So, if you have a risk of blood clotting then you should consult your doctor regarding this and take the specific medication every day to prevent blood from clotting.

Take care.

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.
