Hi Mitch. How long have you been on Warfarin for. If its quite recently started it can take a while to find out a dosage amount that will keep you in range. If not there are many things that can cause the fluctuations but its no real panic. Just keep your self up to date often with ya INR and it will regulate.
Is this box really gonna be big enough for me to explain my medical history. Ummmmmm.

I'm back to front!

Hey mitch!
I'm 19 years old I've been on warfrin since I was 5 years old have the same problem as you! I have my own blood testing machine, my INR range is 3-4 BUT at the moment it is between 1-2 the levels usually change if you've consumed alcohol or if you have forgotten to take your warfrin... make sure you check what food you are eating too cranberries for example are a big thing that can alter your range.. hope this helps, pm me if you want!
