Sudden Bowel Ischemia due to high cardiolipin

I’ve had a sudden bowel ischemia, hence underwent a right hemicolectomy removal. I’m 25 healthy never been hospitalised before. All the tests were healthy except for the Cardiolipin IGg which was high. Im now on anticoagulants, i was wondering if this is common? And could it be something other than blood issue? (My heart is healthy, blood proteins are normal)

Gosh, would say talk to your doctor about this but my understanding is that high cardiolipin would be indicative of a clotting issue, just as they are treating you for.  You don't have lupus?  It can be common with lupus as well.  Any autoimune disorder symptoms?  Talk to your doctor to make sure.
