My INR level today was 6.8. Is this number a problem?

High INR: Call your doctor. He may need to adjust your Warfarin dose if no bleeding. If bleeding is present you may need Vitamin K to reverse effectt of Warfarin. I am assuming that the elevation of INR is due to treatment with Warfarin. ...Read more

Anything above 1.5: The inr is a measure of how "thin" the blood is, typically due to the use of prescription blood thinners such as Coumadin (warfarin). A normal inr is 1.0. Anything above that is abnormal. For people on coumadin, the typical goal inr is 2.5 to 4.0 depending on the particular condition it is being used for. ...Read more

INR: An INR of 1.6 is elevated somewhat and can be associated with increased bleeding.

What is the cause of high INR levels?

Dr. Calvin Weisberger
Board Certified, Cardiology

30M people helped

INR: Inr is a measure of clotting involving factors which we block with the drug warfarin. When the inr is high the factors are being blocked and clotting is inhibited. Usually we aim for an inr of 2 to 3 times standard. Sometimes we aim higher. If not on warfarin then the liver may be damaged causing the factors to be low. ...Read more

Several things: A consistent diet avoiding vitamin k rich foods, timing the medication correctly, and avoiding antibiotics (if you can) is a start. There are also some new medications that anticoagulate without having to follow inrs -- talk to your doctor. ...Read more
