What syndrome would someone have that the doctor would need to put them on bloodthinners?

My sister is 18 and just moved out here from MN to go to school. She has had many medical problems and been to several doctors. She recently told me that the doctor said there was something wrong with her blood and she needs to be put on blood thinners for the rest of her life. What syndrome could this be?

    There are several, but the first that comes to mind is Factor-V (five).

    I'm not sure of the names of the syndromes, but I pretty sure that it has to do with blood thickening.

    Go to this website:

    www.webmd.com

    It knows all kinds of things. I've had to use it many times myself before.

    They give blood thinners for poor circulation problems, narrow arteries

    If you have a blood clot, they'll put you on a blood thinner so that you won't have a stroke if the clot breaks free.
