I agree with you, and I called my surgeon's office asking for more documentation of the INR target. The PA is supposed to call me back -- my surgeon is always in surgery or seeing patients, which is a good thing. I'll get this worked out.John - being below 2 worries me. An INR of 1.7 worries me even more. If you consider that the accepted accuracy of testing is +/- 20%, a 1.7 INR could put your INR at 1.36. Some meters may report INR that's lower than blood draws by a RELIABLE lab.
As of my last check, yesterday, my INR was 2.0, measured at the CPMC Van Ness medical office building.
In the future, my cardiologist will be my primary contact for anticoagulation management, and he always shares detailed information with me about the decisions he makes.
