I have been told time after time that this thins your blood and will help with issues etc. But can they/us stop treating people like children. You INR tells you how quick your blood clots compared to an average person (normal) taking warfrin just slows this process down so that your blood takes longer to clot. It does not turn your blood from yoghurt to milk.
If we can not get the correct information out there to the patience then it just slows down the learning process of how to treat the problem.
