About Me: Female, 60, Grantville, KS, member since May 2008
I have an A personality trait and have worked very hard all my life. I am native american and have two beautiful children. Unfortunately, at 20 I had a terrible auto accident and started making very large DVT's and then started showering PE's. In 1978 I was diagnosis
[More] as Antithrombin 3 deficiency. There were times when I would be tested and I produced a very positive lab test demonstrating the Factor 3 deficiency it was usually when I was on Heparin. But when I was on large doses of Coumadin I would not produce a positive Factor 3 deficiency. I carried that diagnosis until 1997. I was told it did not exist. I was also told they did not know why I was clotting. In 2003 I was given a viper test twice and popped up positive strongly. I now carry the diagnosis of Lupus Anticoagulant Disease.
