D-Dimer Blood Test - More Information

The D-dimer test, also known as a D-dimer blood test and D-dimer lab test, measures the D-dimer blood level.

D-dimer is a type of protein that is found in the blood as a result of the breakdown of fibrin, a blood product used in clotting. Normally absent in the blood, d-dimer starts becoming measurable when the clotting cascade has been turned on. Because fibrin is a core component of a blood clot, the elevated d-dimer levels are thought to correlate with increased clotting. More specifically, the d-dimer is used to look for a blood clot (e.g. venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism).
