My INR For August 2013

As August is now finished, I can show a graph of my daily INR tests for August 2013.

My INR For August 2013

My INR For August 2013

The average INR for the month was 2.5 with a standard deviation of 0.3.  This is well within the range of 2 to 3 and the average was spot-on the target of 2.5.

Having once been told by an eminent cardiologist, that if I got the Warfarin level right, I probably wouldn’t have another stroke, I try to make sure I get it right.

What is interesting is that my average Warfarin dose for month is exactly 4 mg. a day.

The more I look at these results, the more I believe that daily self-testing is the best way to control INR.

  1. If you don’t mind me asking, how long did it take before your results were between 2 and 3?

    • They did it before I left hospital. Just a few days.
