What could cause my INR to be 1.9 last week, and 4.4 this week with no diet or medication changes? Can lupus anticoag. Do it?

What could cause my INR to be 1.9 last week, and 4.4 this week with no diet or medication changes?  Can lupus anticoag. Do it?

Changing INR : It is relatively common for inr to change even though a person keeps taking the same dose of Coumadin and is careful with diet, taking the same amount of green foods (salads, green vegetables). Lupus antibodies do raise inr but unless there is a change in the level of lupus antibodies, it would not affect the inr. Some individuals have a very labile (changing) inr for no apparent reason. ...Read more

Possibly: You do not develop a tolerance to prednisone. If 10 mg daily no longer controls your symptoms, it means the disease has become more active. ...Read more

I have classic lupus symptoms, worse over time. I had a + ANA test last year. It's normal this year. Could I still have lupus? What else mimics lupus?

I have classic lupus symptoms, worse over time. I had a + ANA test last year. It's normal this year. Could I still have lupus? What else mimics lupus?

The ANA? False?: The ANA is moot. There are however discrete clinical criteria for the DX of lupus. Do you have them? The test most specific for lupus is double stranded dna antibodies. I suspect you do not ha be sle. It has many mimics. See a rheumatogist. Some trained well in rheumatology would not diagnose you with the information you have given! ...Read more
