You don’t need to go to a doctor’s office or lab for monthly PT/INR testing. Now you can check your own PT/INR level every week in the comfort of your home. Medicare and many insurance plans cover weekly self testing for most patients taking Coumadin® (warfarin). Real-Time Diagnostics provides convenient PT/INR self testing at home in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Florida.
Self testing is convenient, accurate and usually won’t cost you any more than monthly testing in your doctor’s office!
Current technology demonstrates up to a 97% correlation between results obtained through self testing and results obtained by a lab or at the point of care.
Clinical studies have shown more frequent PT/INR testing lowers the risk of serious medical complications like stroke and bleeding.
