What does it mean if my Chromogranin test level was below the normal range? Does that indicate anything? I know an elevated level is Carcinoid but what about low? CgA= 1.1 APTT=29 INR= 1.0

Do low INR levels cause portal vein thrombosis pain to return in upper abdomen?

Do low INR levels cause portal vein thrombosis pain to return in upper abdomen?

What are any symptoms of INR of 5.1?

Headache? Go to ER!: Hit your head with a hammer and you'll find out. The INR indicates how more likely you are to bleed (for whatever reason). It doesn't cause symptoms on its own.

An INR of 5.1 isn't so bad, so don't worry, unless something bleeds ...Read more
