Cause #2: Blood Clots

While blood clots can be lifesaving as they help to stop bleeding, they can also cause serious issues such as pulmonary embolism, heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, and more. Blood starts to clot when platelets stick together to form a plug.

Clotting factors are then released leading to a chain reaction which causes the clot to grow through long strands of fibrin that tangle up and create a net. Blood clots that occur in the urinary system can also cause obstruction leading to hydronephrosis.
