Each laboratory must establish its own normal ranges for fibrinogen in the blood. These ranges depend on the makeup of the local population, the technologies used and the accuracy of the measurement. There may be also slight differences in the normal levels according to age, gender, race or ethnic origin, geographic region, diet, type of sample and other relevant status.
Your doctor will study the results along with your medical record, screenings, physical condition, symptoms and any other relevant information about your situation.
In pregnancy, normal range is usually higher. For this reason, it is necessary to follow the ranges marked by the laboratory in relation to the week of gestation.
Fibrinogen is a complex protein (polypeptide), which plays an important role in hemostasis, the process to prevent and stop bleeding.
For normal hemostasis to occur in response to injury or tissue damage, a sufficient concentration of fibrinogen must be present in plasma. Fibrinogen is converted into fibrin. Fibrin is necessary for the effective blood clot formation and is a key component of clot formation. The fibrin, along with platelets, forms the network for the common blood clot.
Fibrinogen is synthesized in the liver and it is naturally dissolved in plasma.
Fibrinogen is also known as clotting factor I. Fibrinogen is one of 13 coagulation factors responsible for normal blood clotting.
The fibrinogen blood test is part of a coagulation panel and it is performed when clotting disorders are suspected, for example, in case of intense nose, gums or menstrual bleeding. This test is also helpful when there is blood in the urine or the stool.
Although it is of primary importance as a coagulation protein, fibrinogen is also an acute-phase protein reactant. It is increased in diseases involving tissue damage or inflammation.
Besides, the fibrinogen blood test is used to study:
Low levels of fibrinogen may contribute to excessive bleeding, and conversely, levels that are above the normal range may contribute to the formation of small intravascular blood clots, causing thrombosis and cardiovascular problems such as a heart attack.
