A D-dimer blood test is used to rule out the existence of a dangerous blood clot. When we suffer a cut, the body goes through a series of actions to coagulate the blood. When the bleeding stops, the body breaks down the blood clot. This process releases a protein fragment called D-dimer into the blood. D-dimer fades away with time in a healthy body. However, large amounts of D-dimer in the blood can be detected if a person has a severe clot, like deep vein thrombosis or any other blood clotting disorder.
The D-dimer blood test is especially effective when your doctor wants to rule out specific conditions, including:

This test cannot establish the presence of DVT or PE. It can only assist in eliminating their possibilities. Furthermore, one can receive a high result for causes other than blood clotting, including:
