The Fibrinogen Activity test is done to evaluate the ability of a person's blood to clot. Fibrinogen is a protein which is essential for allowing blood to clot normally. Low Fibrinogen levels can lead to excessive and dangerous bleeding. Higher than normal levels can increase a person's risk for developing blood clots and cardiovascular disease. Measuring a person's Fibrinogen levels can aid in the diagnosis of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) or Abnormal Fibrinolysis.
A Fibrinogen Activity test is usually ordered when someone has experienced unexplained or prolonged bleeding. It may also be ordered to follow up abnormal results to a Prothrombin Time (PT) or Partial Thromboplastin Time (PTT) test. This test may also be used along with other heart health tests to evaluate a person's risk for developing Cardiovascular Disease.
Turnaround time for the Fibrinogen Activity test is typically 1-3 business days.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
The Fibrinogen Activity test has no fasting requirements.
