What is the Fibrinogen Level test?
Fibrinogen is a coagulation factor or protein that is needed to form a blood clot. It is produced by the cells of the liver and endothelium. This protein is taken by the blood platelet precursors as well as the bone marrow and stored for when it is needed. When bleeding occurs, fibrinogen can assist in halting the bleeding by forming blood clots.
When is the Fibrinogen Level test recommended?
It is recommended in:Bleeding disorders.Thrombotic events.Suspected Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC).Abnormalities in the coagulation panel (PT/PTT).Dysfibrinogenemia, in which a fibrinogen antigen test is performed to differentiate between a lack of protein in the system or just dysfunctional fibrinogen.This is occasionally used for screening the risk of coronary artery disease.This can be done as a follow-up test for chronic conditions such as liver disease.
What does it measure?
The Fibrinogen Level test: Analyzes the function of the Fibrinogen and its ability to help form a net of fibrin strands to promote healing at an injured or bleeding site. This is required for the formation of blood clots. Fibrinogen is produced by the liver and enters the bloodstream. When an injury happens and starts bleeding, that’s when a healthy individual’s body will form a clot through many steps. The last step would be the transformation of soluble fibrinogen into insoluble fibrinogen that bundles together to close the injury site until it gets healed.
