inr 10.6

my warfarin was at 5mg i was seeing a sketchy primary so i found another but before i did the first one raised my dose. did a blood test three days after i started the 5mg. inr was 1.6 he increased the dose to 6. i went for blood today and the new primary called back and said inr is now 10.6. said if any headaches call 911. i'm 26 i'm extremely careful about getting injured. i wonder if i should go and have it reversed

Hi, see you have just joined-are you on warfarin because you have Hughes/APS?

Did your doctor/primary suggest reversal? It is now high and you are at risk of bleeding, suggest if your doctor didnt say come in that you eat some greens/vitimin K to get this lower...

Do you have Hughes Syndrome? Unless you do we can't answer your question as this is a Forum for that disease.

Hi, you do need to urgently go and see your doctor and you also need to be tested for Hughes Syndrome/APS, this form is specifically for those with that diagnosis. MaryF

10.6 is really high, if you phone your Doctors they should give you advice, seems at the very least you need to be reassured only Doctors can do this.

10.6 is high this happens to me sometimes when it first jumped very high it was 21.3 I was taken into hospital and given vit k and within 24hrs it was very low and then I was told next time to miss 2 days when it was 10.1 unfortunatly for me I am on warfarin with anti phose lipids and lupus with a multitude of other medical problems so my consultants are very careful with the way they treat me . Hope you get sorted soon , but definatly see your GP

If you have APS, and particularly, are high Lupus anti-coagulant (LAC) positive, your INR readings may be unreliable. The antibodies on you blood can interact with the testing agents. You should be double-checked with a Factor II or Chromogenic Factor X

Hi Gopher,

I see you joined us yesterday so I wonder if you are diagnosed with our illness here?

I am Lupus Anticoagulant (LA) positive with high titres and selftest and the difference between the two readings (fingerprick- and vein-tests) are always the same but a bit bigger if the INR is very high.

Could you explain what you are talking of here please.

Best wishes from Kerstin in Stockholm
