INR Level Tool
What does this tool do?
We take your INR Level and your Normal INR Level Range, crunch the numbers using FDA, Government, and University Medical sources to give you a focused set of data. Then we convert the data into easy to read information.
To use this tool, slide the INR indicator to your desired INR value and read about the impact that INR level will have on your Warfarin treatment.
What is the ideal INR level?
It is nearly impossible to maintain the same INR level day-to-day. Your INR will fluctuate for various reasons such as diet and medication. Since your INR levels will always fluctuate, your doctor will assigned you a target INR range. Typically, there are two ranges: 2.0-3.0 and 2.5-3.5
INR range of 2.0 to 3.0
An INR range of 2.0 - 3.5 is usually given to people with the following conditions:1
- Treatment for deep vein thrombosis (dvt) - blood clot in leg
- Treatment for pulmonary embolism (pe) - blood clot in lung
- Prophylaxis of venous thrombosis (high-risk surgery)
- Tissue heart valves
- Acute Heart Attack
- Valvular heart disease
- Atrial fibrillation
INR range of 2.5 to 3.5
An INR range of 2.5 - 3.5 is usually given to people with the following conditions:1, 2

This tool is not intended for self diagnosis but is aimed to educate patients on their diagnosis and to let patients go into their INR appointments educated and informed so they can get the best treatment possible.
