My INR was 2.3 last time it was done. My doctor wants to go a month between testing, but I know I am eating healthier now, so will try to get one done in 2 weeks, when I get my potassium checked.....that dropped low, so that needs testing again too. To make it worse, I work in the lab so I get to draw blood for all the other patient's and run those tests....now I am on the other side of the needle....no fun! emoticon

INR's are 2.3 this week. Just came off antibiotics that messed with the numbers, but back on track. Will have to be tested every week for a couple of weeks because of the massive amount of vegetables that we consume every day. 9 mg of warfarin a day to keep steady numbers.

Came in at 1.8... Taking 7.5 every day and will be retested on Friday. This is good considering I was at 7.0 a few weeks ago and had to take some massive Vitamin K to get it lowered quickly.

My levels are perfect, 2.6, meaning I won't have to visit the labs as often. emoticon

Since ramping up my activity and downing a pitcher of water every day, my INR has tanked to 1.4. My lifetime maintenance INR is 2.0. I've been doing this roller coaster for 2.5 years now, so...back to retest in a week!

Nothing tells on us quicker than that INR test. I am bummed. Here we going changing doses again. Have to readjust mg because I wasn't consistent with my green foods. Consistency in anything has been a life long issue for me. I am good for awhile and then start falling away. INR's don't let me do that.

I was at 1.5 and my doctor wants it between 2-3. I take 10 mg a day. It's hard to keep track especially when I'm trying to lose weight for my wedding.

That is good. I completely forgot to post my results. LOL Mine is right at 3.0 and that is perfect for me. I have struggled to keep mine in a good range for almost 2 years now, so maybe I'm on the right dosage and eating better now. We shall see next week. emoticon

Mine was 2.2 yesterday. So far so good. It's been within range for about the last 3 weeks now so that's a good thing!
