Hi, I was looking around the internet for info after speaking with my hematologist yesterday. Ive actually been treated for 7 years (had a dvt at 26) with a steady warfarin level of 9mg (although because of the lupus anticoagulant they dont do an inr, they do some type of protein time thing) . Anyway what concerned me was that he mentioned that he tested me again for my anitphospholid levels and that they are still there and he made a point to mention I have the highest he's ever seen (hes 75). This isnt a sudden change but it concerned me enough to look online for info on it which led me to variosus apls and hughs syndrome sites but I couldnt figure if these two diagnosis alone mean i have Hughes. Is hughes just a generalization for any antiphospholid disorder? Also he mentioned my number for whatever test he did was 250, but i forgot the test name, does that mean anything to anybody? Thanks!
