... mutation- a thrombophilia which predisposes me to DVTs but have never had an episode. I do, however, have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ Fibromyalgia for which the nattokinase is supposed to be beneficial
Can nattokinase be taken if one is hypotensive (typicaly 100/60mm Hg)? I have factor V Leiden?

Nattokinase is an enzyme isolated from the Japanese soybean, Natto. It has been found to have blood clot dissolving abilities and prevents the aggregation of red blood cells.
Nattokinase should only be used under guidance of a health care provider. Combining nattokinase and any anticoagulant, such as aspirin, Coumadin, etc... may lead to internal bleeding in some patients.
Ask your health care professional before use, especially if you are taking anti-coagulants, aspirin, Coumadin or other medicines or herbs that thin the blood.
Nattokinase could lower your BP too much but if your doctor/health care provider knows your medical history and still recommended it, you can always keep track of your BP and see if there are changes; and if so call immediately to see if you should be taken off the supplement.
