Protein S - Free

About

Protein S is a natural anticoagulant in the blood that helps the regulation of blood clot formation. It works by activating another protein C.

What might a low result mean?

Whilst a deficiency in protein S can be genetic, low levels can also be caused by liver and kidney problems or a vitamin K deficiency – which can occur in those taking warfarin.
