Blood clots may produce no symptoms, or any of the following may occur:

  • Pain, swelling, redness, and tenderness in the area where the clot is located

Besides inherited conditions, which cause a small percentage of blood clots, here are other known risk factors:

  • Abnormal lipids and plasma fibrinogen levels
  • Age
  • Antiphospholipid syndrome (immune system mistakenly attacks some of the normal proteins in your blood and leads to clot formation)
  • Arteriosclerosis / atherosclerosis
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Being sedentary
  • Burns
  • Cancer
  • DVT in the past
  • Elevated homocysteine
  • Fracture or injury
  • Genetic factors such as prothrombin mutation or factor V Leiden
  • Pharmaceutical medications such as NSAIDs, oral contraceptives, hormone therapy drugs and some breast cancer medication
  • Heart arrhythmias
  • Heart attack
  • Heart failure
  • Increase in blood viscosity
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • IV drug abuse
  • Lupus
  • Long plane or car trips (longer than four hours)

Recommended Food

Mediterranean style diet with some modifications. This diet is rich in vegetables, fruit, fish, nuts and olive oil and low in dairy, sweets, and meats. The one recommended change would be to drastically reduce intake of processed grains, which increase the risk of diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.

Teas, including green tea, have been shown in several population studies to reduce the risk of stroke and to replace platelet clumping.

Pomegranate juice reduces platelet clumping.

Additional foods to consider include turmeric, garlic, cayenne and ginger, all of which confer a mild blood-thinning effect.

Foods to Avoid

Simple sugars
