I am a Biochemist by background, so a lot of the medical terminology and all the genetics make sense, but I understand that to most people a lot of the information about DVT that is out there might as well be written in a different language. So I have tried was possible to keep it simple. If there is anything you don't understand I have tried to cover it in the glossary, unfortunately there are certain things, like the five hereditary genetic conditions, that can't be explained without scientific terminology. Please feel free to contact me if there is something you don’t understand and I will try and help.
This website has been put together, to try and help other people with DVT realise that they are not alone. This website has not been put together by a team of medical researchers, but by a fellow patient that struggled to understand their condition.
