Fibrinogen is essential for the formation of a blood clot. Deficiency can produce mild to severe bleeding disorders. Low fibrinogen levels can also cause thrombosis due to an increase in coagulation activity. Thrombosis refers to the formation of a blood clot inside of a blood vessel. The clot blocks the normal flow of blood through the circulatory system. This can lead to serious medical conditions such as heart attack and stroke.
