Even though all the antibody tests are not yet in, I have had a copy of a really helpful letter from the dr I saw at St T's. One of the many things she suggests is that I lower my target INR range from 3-4 as I have no actual evidence of TIA. This makes sense to me as I know at a high range I am at high risk of a head bleed.
She also says that then if my INR went below 3 I could have a heparin dose.
What I want to ask is how much does a one off dose tend to raise the INR? I know we are all different so a precise number is not poss. but I'd like just some idea. I know I have to discuss this more with my 2 consultants and my GP so I want to feel a bit more informed before these chats.
Also presumably I would then be self testing and self injecting??
Thank you for reading this far
