In brief: Depends
The inr is a measure of how thin your blood is.
When alcohol effects your inr it is causing your blood to become more thin. A low inr means that your blood is thicker. A high inr means your blood is thinner. If your inr is too low i.e. Too thick i.e. Not anticoagulated, then there are treatment options to anticoagulate including an injectable medications. You should discuss with your doctor.

Not a good idea. The best idea is to be consistent with diet.
