I am so pleased I have a coaguchek machine. Just received my appointment for my next INR blood test , it's on 3rd March 2015. I think that's about 13 weeks . I'm sure that there are some of you that are always stable ,I am not and even a week can make a difference. I would be quite worried if I hadn't got a machine ,as it is I will check myself every fortnight and adjust diet accordingly.
My health authority will not prescribe testing strips or approve of me using a coaguchek. Why, if there is to be such a long time between tests surely much cheaper to issue strips than me have another stroke.
