Prothrombin Time and International Normalized Ratio (PT/INR)

Senior Citizens – 10% OFF On All Pathology Tests

A prothrombin time (PT) is a test used to help detect and diagnose a bleeding disorder or excessive clotting disorder; the international normalized ratio (INR) is calculated from a PT result and is used to monitor how well the blood-thinning medication (anticoagulant) warfarin (Coumadin®) is working to prevent blood clots.

When To Get Tested?

When you are taking warfarin or when you have unexplained or prolonged bleeding or inappropriate blood clotting.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can cause INR to increase?2022-12-07T06:26:18+00:00

• Too much anticoagulant medicine, a type of blood thinner that helps prevent clots.
• Other medicines, such as aspirin, NSAIDs, and some antibiotics, when you also are using anticoagulants.
• Health conditions, such as liver failure or bleeding disorders

Does diet affect INR levels?2022-12-07T06:26:25+00:00

Certain foods and dietary supplements have vitamin K. Vitamin K works against warfarin. If you eat more vitamin K, it can lower your INR. If you eat less vitamin K, it can raise your INR.

What is the treatment for high INR?2022-12-07T06:26:37+00:00

Increase or decrease oral Vitamin K administration based on the clinical situation. Parenteral Vitamin K should only be used for life-threatening bleeding and is therefore not appropriate for outpatient use.

What is the danger level for INR?2022-12-07T06:26:47+00:00

INR levels above 4.9 are considered critical values and increase the risk of bleeding.

Do you need to fast for PT INR blood test?2022-12-07T06:27:53+00:00

No special preparation is needed.

What may affect PT INR test results?2022-12-07T06:28:11+00:00

Illness, change in diet, and some medications (as mentioned above) can alter PT/INR results. Certain foods, such as beef and pork liver, green tea, broccoli, chickpeas, kale, turnip greens, and soybean products contain large amounts of vitamin K and can alter PT/INR results.
