... to take care of her. She has a regular dr appt in two weeks, but her doctor is insisting she come in for another test this week. She would be only going 6 weeks for the check, I just feel it is abusing the insurance . Am I wrong?
I've been on coumadin 4+ years. I didn't think regular blood tests were all that important since my levels had been consistent and in the target area for almost 2 years. I would still go every month as my doctor requested. For some odd reason one month my INR/Pro-time was extremely high (14.0 INR) We still do not know why (no diet or med. change). By catching it early it was easier to get back into our target area. I will never question a blood draw again!
