well plasma can reverse thinest of blood right?

powerlifted says:

Dabigatran also inhibits this ,,,powerful inhibitor of various serine
proteases, specifically thrombin, but also trypsin, The Trypsin, now when
blocking this it seems to me, that there will be problems in the long term

StopAfib says:

We know it’s dabigatran, but a doctor mispronouncing the name makes the
