Are blood thinners dangerous?

I am a 31 year old male. I want to know if blood thinners are dangerous?

They are not dangerous unless the lab tests are not done as ordered. They are certainly less dangerous than the conditions for which they are prescribed.
Yes they are, but they are life saving and need to be taken specifically as prescribed and should report any adverse affects to your doctor. As with any medication you must balance the risks against the benefits. Blood thinners are used in high risk conditions, but provide great benefits.
