Bleeding and Clotting Disorders

Blood requisitions

07/28/2008

Question:

I recently had blood test done for complaints about numbness in my toes and cramping in legs. I noticed the doctor listed "d" on the one of the test lines. What kind of test would this "d" represent? she didn`t tell me everything she was testing me for. Thanks

Answer:

Using a "d" is not a standard abbreviation, so I do not know what the doctor could be referring to. I would ask your physician what he or she meant by this.
