Also, I was living at an altitude of over 5000 ft. when I had my BPT.

Hello
Does living at altitude increase the risk of pulmonary embolisms? Or bpt? I had PEs following a surgery, and mild stroke. Now they tested for factor 8 and it’s 254% so I’m assuming that is a life sentence for blood thinners. Haven’t heard from doctor yet but received my result. Also will they do any testing to figure out why it is elevated? Thank you!
