If my INR is to low what dose that mean?

If my INR is to low what dose that mean?

Not enough thinning: Assuming that you are on blood thinners, too low of an inr means that your blood isn't "thin" enough; it still clots more easily than is recommended. If you aren't on blood thinners, there really isn't such a thing as "too low inr". ...Read more

What's the difference between pt and inr?

Uniform standered: Pt is prothrombin time, INR is international normalized ratio, both measure cloting tendency in disease and in health. In pt each time you need contol which varies place to place and some what unpredictble. So INR solves the problem by uniform standred all over the world. Inr of 2 to 3 if 3 or more means will bleed, under 2 means need more medication (like coumidine). ...Read more

What is the difference between pt, ptt, and INR tests?

What is the difference between pt, ptt, and INR tests?

Blood coagulation: The pt and PTT labs measure components of the blood clotting cascade. Abnormalities of one or the other or both lead towards the type of clotting abnormality (extrinsic or intrinsic pathway abnormality).
Inr is the international normalized ratio, a derived number based on pt to normalize a variation done in different labs or with different testing systems. It is used in patients on coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more

Am I at risk of getting a clot if my INR is gone down to 1.8?

Could you explain to me the difference between pt, ptt, and inr?

Complicated: Prothrombin Time (PT) measures clotting factors: V, VII, X, prothrombin and fibrinogen. The raw number is of no value. A system of comparing it to a standardized control (used internationally) is generated as the INR (international normalized ratio). The PTT (partial thromboplastin time) measures factors V, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII and others - INR is used for coumadin (warfarin). PTT is used for heparin. ...Read more

Where can I find a table that converts INR alues to quick test values?

It Shouldn't Exist: The beauty of an inr is that it is independent of the specific lab and reagent used for the test. A quick test (tf plasma activation) varies within the same patient from lab to lab, so each lab obtains their own "control correction factor" to generate inrs. There is no single conversion value for this reason. You need the control values from your specific lab. ...Read more
