What Is the Normal Range of the Results for D-dimer Test?

Q:
What is the normal range of the results for D-dimer test?

A:
According to Mayo Clinic, a normal range of results for a D-dimer test is less than or equal to 250 neoantigens per milliliter D-dimer units (DDU), or less than or equal to 0.5 micrograms per milliliter Fibrinogen Equivalent Units (FEU).

A D-dimer test is generally conducted to determine whether a person is experiencing blood clots.

If your result is “normal” or “negative”, it typically means that you most likely don’t have a problem with blood clots.

If your result is “high” or “positive”, it means you might have a blood clot caused by following factors:

  • deep vein thrombosis
  • pulmonary embolism
  • disseminated intravascular coagulation
  • pregnancy
  • advanced age
  •  pre-existing heart or liver disease

Please consult your doctor to understand more clearly what your results mean.
