I'm on Xarelto and my INR is 1.5 is that too low also my D-diner is 0.38 PT is 18.5
you don't need to test INR regularly. INR, D-dimer and PT are only needed when you are taking  warfarin.

So what do I need to be concerned about?  I want to be off xarelto.  It has to many negative reports. When will these levels be important
INR is not an index for taking Xarelto. The dosage of Xarelto depends on your body weight and renal function. Xarelto has less side effects than Warfarin. If you have no sign of bleeding or subcutaneous bleeding, there's no need to worry.
Why are you on Xarelto, Ms. Demetria? I thought it's A.Fib but it seems not since you want to be off Xarelto. Anyway, your Dr. put you on a blood thinner to prevent a blood clot. Now  your INR is fine for a person with blood thinner, of course your D-dimer is good, but the underlying disease that makes you on a blood thinner, is it solved? If you do have A.Fib, you can't just stay off Xarelto. If you do, the risk of blood clot will surely rise. If you had PE or DVT, you need to check with your Dr. before you stop the medication.
My INR is 2.7 . Is it too high? Can I lower it naturally ?
Yes, it's high. Are you on any blood thinner?
My inr valyes is 1.0 is that too low
Hello Alfred, INR value 1.0 is within the normal range. INR value below 1.1 is considered normal, if it goes higher it means the opposite.
HELLO.... I JUST DID BLOOD WORK FOR A SURGERY THAT COMING UP IN TWO WEEKS AND MY PTT LEVEL IS A 11.9 AND INR 1.2 IS THAT IS OKAY OR IS IT SOMETHING I HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT.
Hello Ms. Melvin, The average time range for blood to clot is about 10 to 14 seconds, 11.9 is a good number. For INR, healthy people may have a value
I have been on Warfarin because of the blood is clotting disorder for 30 years I just had 5 surgeries on the same knee and this time my but does not want to go back up with my Warfarin therapy and stays at 1.1 or 1.2 now I'm taking 5 mg of Warfarin and Lovenox shots how long will it take for my INR to go back up to 2 am I in danger?
I'll recommend you to follow advice from your health provider, because the adjustment of INR is professional and it requires expertise.
