It’s important to remember that most blood clots ARE treatable. Treatment often involves medical and lifestyle changes.

Common treatments include:

  • Medications, such as anticoagulation (aka a blood thinner). See our anticoagulation chart for a comparison of commonly prescribed anticoagulants
  • Medical Interventions, such as surgeries or procedures which can help dissolve or remove clots
  • Lifestyle Interventions, such as wearing compression socks, exercising, staying hydrated, and attending support groups like our monthly online newly diagnosed patient support group

Your personalized treatment plan should be a collaboration between you and your medical team. You have a right to fully understand your treatment plan and know what the alternative options are, as well as why your team is recommending a particular plan. Ask your team as many questions as you need to!
