D-dimer is a protein fragment that is released when a blood clot dissolves in the body. Measuring the levels of d-dimer in the blood can help in the diagnosis of conditions related to blood clots, such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE).
In the case of stroke, d-dimer levels can also be an indicator of the severity of the stroke and can provide information on the prognosis of the patient. High levels of d-dimer have been associated with a worse outcome in stroke patients, including increased mortality.
At The Tole, we offer a comprehensive approach to the treatment of stroke, including the use of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) herbs and acupuncture. Our treatment aims to improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote the regeneration of damaged brain cells.
We recognize the importance of monitoring d-dimer levels in stroke patients and use this information to guide our treatment approach. By addressing the underlying causes of stroke, including blood clots and inflammation, we aim to reduce the risk of further strokes and improve the overall health and well-being of our patients.
Our team of experienced TCM physicians and therapists work together to provide personalized treatment plans tailored to the specific needs of each patient. We believe in a holistic approach to healthcare that considers the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of our patients.
If you or a loved one has suffered a stroke, we invite you to visit us at The Tole and learn more about our approach to stroke treatment. Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality care and support to help our patients achieve optimal health and well-being.
