Have You Recently Been Diagnosed With Antiphospholipid Syndrome?
Please note that these tips did NOT come from a Doctor or anyone in the medical profession.
Journal your symptoms and INR readings along with Coumadin/Warfarin doses. Also take pictures of any rashes and discolorations that you may have. They may not be there when you see your doctor next.
Check out the Clinic Care app if you are more digitally inclined and want to record and track your INR information online. There is a lot of good information on the site and you will be able to record multiple things and see trends in your INR.
Use a log sheet if you are on Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH) or Lovenox® (short or long term). We also have a LMWH brochure that’s available for download on our Downloads page. The brochure is about the proper way to administer the self-injections.
