Ali04's Testimony

Ahh....another machine not working.

i also have aps, history of one stroke, with recurrant clots while on coumadin.
i had the protime, and when checked against the lab, was found to be faulty.
i was told by the company that it may be inaccurate for people with the lupus anticoagulant.
be careful, and once in a while check it against the lab. the differences i had were alarming.
the company apologized, said i shouldnt use it, and refunded my money. that was in 01.

My goal is to educate APS patients on long term coumadin or warfarin about the possible dangers of using, and relying on Home (finger stick) INR machines to test their INR. Nothing more, nothing less. **I am not affiliated with any APS group, but a member of many. I am just trying to educate people about these machines.**
