Is it possible to have polycythemia vera with normal pt, ptt, & INR plus normal bleeding time? High rbc, hgb, & hct.

Yes: Pt, ptt, inr and bleeding time have no role in the diagnosis of p. Vera. If you're eighteen years old, i'd look hard for a different cause if you are actually significantly polycythemic. There are plenty of really fit young men whose hemoglobin is a bit higher than the reference range -- athleticism to odd hemoglobin genes to something in your "gym health drink" you don't know about. Good luck. ...Read more

My prothrombin time is INR 1.3 with normal aptt and platelet counts. Do I have liver failure? Normal ast, alt, alp and bilirubin. Burns right stomach

My prothrombin time is INR 1.3 with normal aptt and platelet counts. Do I have liver failure? Normal ast, alt, alp and bilirubin. Burns right stomach

Probably not: The slight elevation in the inr with normal labs for the rest of your liver functions suggests you don't have liver disease. The burning could be coming from an ulcer, or gastritis, or esophagitis. The body doesn't do a good job of localizing pain coming from the internal organs, so where you feel the pain may not be where it is.. Follow up with your doctor to check out different causes. ...Read more

Is it safe to associate nattokinase with warfarin, under INR control?

Is it safe to associate nattokinase with warfarin, under INR control?

Probably not safe: Nattokinase has fibrinolytic activity which is a different mechanism than warfarin which is a vitamin k antagonist interfering with synthesis of prothombin and factor vii. The combination is likely synergistic. The product label clearly states they should not be used together and i don't doubt that the combination would increase the risk of pathological bleeding including intracranial hemorrhage. ...Read more
