For example, it may be due to a venous thromboembolism (VTE) or disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).

However, it should not be used when the probability of pulmonary emobism is high based on clinical assessment.

When a person has symptoms of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), such as bleeding gums, nausea, vomiting, severe muscle and abdominal pain, seizures, and decreased urine output, a D-dimer test may be ordered, along with a PT, PTT, fibrinogen, and platelet count, to help diagnose the condition.

D-dimer may also be ordered at intervals when someone is undergoing treatment for DIC to help monitor its progress.

A normal or negative D-dimer result (D-dimer level is below a predetermined threshold) means that it is most likely that the person tested does not have an acute condition or disease causing abnormal clot formation and breakdown.

Most health practitioners agree that a negative D-dimer is most valid and useful when the test is done for people who are considered to be at low to moderate risk for thrombosis.
