A name for thickening of the blood?

I'm not sure but you may want to search the internet

Strictly speaking, there is no such term as blood thickening. There are a few disease states where the blood becomes more viscous than normal due to tumour cells producing proteins (as in Waldenstroms macroglobulinaemia & multiple myeloma syndromes). In any condition where there is loss of fluid from the body (hypovolemia) like protracted diarrhoea, vomiting, burns, haemorrhage etc, there is a shift of fluid and the blood becomes apparently thick. Also, in a condition called thrombocytosis (an increase in a type of blood cells called platelets), there is a tendency of blood to form clots within blood vessels (thrombosis). You need to discuss with your doctor and find out exactly what the problem is.

The coagulation of blood is a complex process during which blood thickens and also forms solid clots. This can completely block the arteries. This stops the flow of blood to the heart muscle. ... Hard plaque causes the artery walls to thicken and harden. These can be symptoms of coronary heart disease. I will keep you in my prayers.

Thickening of the blood can be due to several factors including fibrinogen (the protein which causes clotting and protects us from bleeding to death in the case of a cut), too much of cholesterol (hyperlipidemia), high levels of triglcerides (another form of fat) etc. What is more important is to know what is causing the thickening of blood and the treatment being given.

Treatment is important to prevent problems of heart and strokes etc.
