Blood pressure: You don't want to be diagnosed with high blood pressure after one visit. BP fluctuates. Follow it for a few weeks and see what it does. It is common for people to develop BP issues in their 40's and 50's - as you age, your blood vessels stiffen. Also genetic influences play a role.

I had some blood work done for cardiac enzymes and had to be restuck several times due to the blood thickening. What causes this to happen.

Poor stick: In blood drawing, a proper needle insertion into the vein is ever important, and when done correctly, then blood flows freely into the collection tube. When the stick is not properly done, the blood return is slow allowing the clotting mechanism to cascade into the blood thickening, also known as a clot. There is nothing wrong with you; rather, the one drawing the blood is the problem. ...Read more

Blood thickened even though food/lifestyle was unchanged (inr dropped to 1.3). Upping warfarin 3mg to 7mg did nothing. Now on 9mg and also daily heparin injections. Inr still 1.3. Why no improvement

Blood thickened even though food/lifestyle was unchanged (inr dropped to 1.3). Upping warfarin 3mg to 7mg did nothing. Now on 9mg and also daily heparin injections. Inr still 1.3. Why no improvement

Coumadin (warfarin) resistance: 95% of people get adequate response to Coumadin (warfarin) with dosage between 1-9mg. Thus leaving about 5% of people need above 9mg--because of several posible causes: poor absorption (drug such as Cholestyramine can cause this), too rapid elimination, xcessivevit k intake, hyperlipidemia, certain drugs, or hereditary resistance (rare), and at times unknown. Consult doc for adjustment. Good luck. ...Read more
