What kind of stupid comment is that?

vodka thins blood....OR eat garlic and drink water...Or do nothing because everything is stupid and you're  the expert...it's your decision buddy...your problem and between you and your God...I really don't care.

 

 Alcohol is known to increase levels of the "good" cholesterol, or HDL, and new research shows that it may act as a blood thinner. In the new study, drinking alcohol decreased the clumping together of clotting cells in the blood, a process that can lead to blood vessel blockages in the heart and possibly a heart attack

Vodka is no different than red wine in thinning blood, and I have a glass of red wine every day. No wish to start drinking hard spirits at my age.

Good luck!  Go see a hematologist at Bumrungrad, well worth it.

Dehydration it sounds like.

As we get older we should be drinking much more water.

But, I would suggest to see a Doctor.  Thick blood can make a person more prone to blood clots.

Maybe some meds are necessary.

 

 

A 'baby' aspirin every day will sort it out.

Is it necessary to wear a catheter if prostate removed?

Immediately after surgery for about two weeks. Ongoing depends on the success with getting incontinence under control after surgery, which can be a significant issue for a small minority of patients.

Light but regular aerobic exercise will help and it will prompt you to drink more.  2  litres a day is too little in this or any other climate.  I drink that much between dinner and bedtime. My average is around 6 litres a day of various liquids.  Yes it means that I get up to pee a lot in the night, but so what, better that than a blood clot.

Not stupid! It actually makes you blood thinner. Ok, side affects are plenty after long time use. 🤣

Not sure what you are trying to indicate here by posting this  article.  You live in a tropical country and you have been told that your blood in thicker than it should be.  What more indication do you need that, possibly among other measures.  you need to drink more water, a fatal heart attack or blood clot?  'I told you so' isn't going to be too helpful to you at your funeral.

Plenty of 'qualified medical professionals' here today.  Always reassuring.

All I'm saying is that more water isn't necessarily the answer. 

Treatment
  1. Antiplatelet therapy: This involves medication that inhibits platelets, or the blood cells responsible for clotting, from forming clots. Aspirin is an example of antiplatelet therapy.
  2. Anticoagulation therapy: This involves medicine to inhibit blood clotting at the level of the coagulation factors.
