Could I ask you about range of INR please? I have had lab test on two days ( when in A and E ) recently and both results have been 0.2 lower than than both my, and the warfarin clinic's. results on same day.
Last week my result was 2.0 so when I e mailed in to the clinic nurse I suggested that I keep to 4mg daily instead of one day 3mg, explaining I didn't want to drop out of range. She refused but I stuck to 4mg anyway and a week later INR is still 2.0. This means only 1.8 on lab test and my range, whilst 2-3 ideally should be 2.5
I am supposed to sign a contract saying I will keep to clinics instructions( just started self testing) but twice now I have had a better idea than the clinic and results have shown this. If anyone adjusts their own dosage, I wonder how you get this arranged!
