What does an INR of 3.5 indicate?

An INR of 3.5 is a bit above the goal of 2.0 - 3.0 for proper anticoagulation to be achieved - for those taking warfarin (or Coumadin = brand name) especially.

Can you use lemon while taking warfarin?

Yes, as long as lemon isn't taken in excessive amount, it won't affect the INR.

What medication does INR assess?

The INR (international normalized ratio) assesses warfarin (Coumadin) activity.

Is an inr level of 2.1 dangerous for a person on warfarin?

Usually not. The target INR varies depending on the reason the warfarin is given but most commonly it is between 2 and 3.

Can you eat edamame while taking warfarin?

Not recommended, unless it is counted as part of your daily vitamin k intake. It is high in it and will affect an INR

Can you use ginger and garlic while taking warfarin?

No, garlic (in "natural products" doses) interfers with blood coagulation and might increase the INR.

What foods help to lower or raise an INR reading?

What foods help lower INR if a person is on Warfarin

Will warfarin increase or decrease the INR?

Warafin is a blood thinner so in theory it should decrease your INR but if your doseage is incorrect it could go either way ^^^^^ This idiot is not true. INR is a ratio of your clotting time compared to the nationalized ratio. If one were to take warfarin, their INR would INCREASE, not decrease.

What is normal INR level?

INR = International Normalised Ratio, which describes how 'sticky' the blood is. Values are taken relative to 'normal' which is an INR of 1.0. People taking anticoagulant drugs, such as Warfarin, will have a raised INR, typically between 2.5 and 3.5. This means the blood is less sticky and less likely to form clots in the event of certain surgical procedures or disease.

I've been on Warfarin for ages but I still got a clot while on it even though my INR results were extremely high does a INR test for medication levels or is it testing actual clotting time?

The INR test measures how quickly your blood clots while on Warfarin. A high INR indicates slower clotting time. However, factors like a vitamin K-rich diet, certain medications, or medical conditions can affect how Warfarin works, leading to clots despite high INR levels.

Is it dangerous to have a 6.5 blood level of Coumadin or Warfarin sodium which is above the level 2 that is recommended and what should be done?

I am assuming by "blood level" that you mean the International Normalized Ratio (INR), as we do not normally check the actual blood level of Warfarin. Warfarin is a commonly used anticoagulant (blood thinner) medication. The level of INR that a patient requires actually varies depending upon the condition they are being treated for. 6.5 is never a therapeutic goal for Warfarin. Elevated INR levels indicate that a patient may bleed. The management for an INR of 6.5 depends upon the presence of bleeding. If the patient is not actively bleeding, it is appropriate to hold the next two scheduled doses of Warfain and monitor the INR. The Warfarin may be resumed when the INR is back to range. IF the patient is bleeding, the Warfarin will need to be stopped and Vitamin K needs to be administered, as well as medical treatment for bleeding. This would be the standard of care in this case.

What medical condition can interfere with warfarin treatment?

Warfarin is a type of anticoagulant. It is used to prevent harmful blood clots from forming within the body. Patients taking warfarin will need to have regular blood tests in order to ensure that their INR (international normalized ratio) falls within normal range; otherwise they have a risk of excessive bleeding.
