I think I read somewhere that antioxidants help keep this low, especially things such as CoQ 10 and alpha lipoic acid and acetyl L-carnitine . . . and eating certain foods that help keep inflammation levels lower

I don't know what my level is, I don't think it's part of my regular lab work. I'm curious and at the same time I don't want something else to have to worry about/deal with.

Before you get your panties in a bunch with worrying, evaluate the total picture:

Compared to individuals with lowest fibrinogen levels, those with fibrinogen above 406 mg/dl were significantly older (41 vs. 43years, p = 0.008), were more likely to be African American (29 vs. 50%, p = 0.018), to be using medication to control blood pressure (12 vs. 16%, p 0.012), to have higher total cholesterol p = 0.014) and lower HDL cholesterol (p = 0.041) and to have higher levels of C-reactive protein (p < 0.0001).

I didn't understand a word of what was in that article. I meet with my Dr on Thursday, though, and will be bringing the topic up.
