Factors that increase the risk of thrombosis

(ORDO NEWS) — Thrombosis is the process of blood clots (blood clots) forming in blood vessels. Scientists have been researching this disease for a long time. 

They believe that the best prevention is the elimination of the factors that provoke this disease. 


So recently, scientists have come to the conclusion that people leading a sedentary lifestyle are more likely to suffer from thrombosis. Immunologist Fyodor Lapiy also identified other risk factors.  This was reported by RBC Ukraine.

Fyodor Lapiy gave a long interview to UNICEF, in which he outlined the most significant factors. So, their list includes:

  • smoking;
  • coronavirus;
  • passive lifestyle;
  • oral contraceptives;
  • pregnancy;
  • childbirth.

Based on these factors, it is obvious that thrombosis occurs more often in women. Therefore, the doctor advises them to pay attention to their health. 

Thrombosis as a complication of coronavirus infection is still worth investigating. It is necessary to study this factor in more detail. Do not forget about the genetic predisposition. For example, if there is a disposition to varicose veins, then the risk of thrombosis is 100%. 

The immunologist recommends that you regularly undergo routine medical examinations, adhere to proper nutrition and engage in moderate physical activity.
