Where can I get an INR meter to test myself? I do it at the doctor's office and it looks pretty easy.

I tried to buy my own machine, but found that they wanted you to be a doctor to purchase one. My doctor wrote a perscription for the INR machine and my insurance approved it as long as it was being monitored. I received the machine from MI-INR out of Florida (you can contact them). They send me test strips and they bill my insurance company. I have to call in my results once a week to MD-INR and they pass the reading on to my doctor. If anything looks unusual, then I get a call from my doctor. I have been doing this for over 8 years. It works out great.

Thanks for the advise, I called them but go no reply and after a few days looked up other providers and found www.AdvancedCardioServices.com out of CA. They were actually able to verify my insurance, get a Rx from my doctor and shipped the meter out the next day to a trainer that is going to come show me how to use it. They seem really professional and on point. Looking forward to being able to test myself from home! :)

I'm finding all of this great medical stuff online now that my doctor never told me about! First home INR testing and now I just found a site with the best prices I've seen for all of my other medical supplies. www.Expressmed.com

Sounds like you got it handled. Good luck. I'm sure you are going to be happier doing your own at home. I monitor my INR's and make my own adjustments. I live with it every day, so I know better than they do what adjustments need to be made and how much. Hope you can get to the same point.
