Were you told that you have positive D-dimer test?

The normal range of D-dimer is less than 500 ng/mL.

This is a normal level.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Not 0.67 is 67.00 . Also i don’t know if me passing out and having a heart beat super fast and blood pressure at 180 when I’m only 27 related to the d Dimer. When the doctors did the examination yesterday they only focused on my lungs

Anything less than 500 is normal.

Following investigations need to be pursued in your case to ascertain the cause of passing out high BP and fast heart rate;

1) MRI with gadolinium contrast

2) Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)

3) Tilt table test

4) Carotid sinus massage

5) Electroencephalography (EEG)

6) Stress cardiac test

7) Total creatine kinase (CK) and heart enzymes

8) Blood electrolytes and blood glucose.

Is this helpful to you?

These should be able to zero down the cause.
