Hi all, I was wondering if anyone else knows if kidney problems can affect the way your body regulates warfarin? I went to hospital with excruciating pains in my back and left side and brusing, when i got there my warfarin was nearly 10, a scan on my kidneys showed inflammation, and blood in my urine, but no infection was grown. My warfarin was reversed and about 3 days later my levels came down, and after iv antibiotics the inflammation went down in my kidneys. I was discharged and a departmental meeting was held about me which i go to see a urologist about tomorrow to find out what decisions where made . The fact that it wasnt just an infection means that something else is going on,and its very worrying. Since the hospital event I have been unable to get my warfarin level right. I have started to have the same pain again and weeing blood,and dizzy spells, Doctors arent getting involved as its not an infection, yet im worried because its obviously more serious, im a bit panicky about my appt tomorrrow to be honest, and the consultant didnt think it was a one off - the conclusion at the moment is that the hughes is affecting my kidneys - sorry for the long one - thanks xx
