Hi Cleo! We are not medical professionals, just volunteers with life experiences in type 1 diabetes. Because I have no medical background, I have no idea what you are referring to when you refer to PT-INR, PR-INR or INR. Could you please enlighten me and perhaps I can do some digging and help you or at least point you in the right direction. Thanx!
PT-INR (the PR-INR was a mistype on my part) is a blood clotting test a lab does to determine how long it would take for you blood to clot. I wam really wanting to talk to some who has both Diabetes and Factor V Lieden (a blood clotting disorder). I did realize that the respondants on this site are not health care providers, I was just hoping to find some one with my same problems or find where I might go to find them.
Thanks so much for your reply
Thanks for the explanation! I apologize for not knowing what you were referring to. I sure hope that there are some folks out there who can share their own personal experience(s) with you to help in some way.
I'm another volunteer here & found this site with information on your Factor V Leiden (and a completely different condition called Factor V Leiden deficiency). If you haven't seen this site before, I perhaps it will be helpful for you.
I have a mechanical mitral valve since 1989., and DIABETES., just since november 2010 my INR is not stable. They bought a new machine and reactive. Now I found another lab. You have to know the range of PT, INR AND PTT., then you see is the numbers match. Sometimes labs use not expensive reactive and this is a problem.
Since 1989 I have a notebook with all my labs, results, food etc....well you can contact me ***@****
