Prothrombin Time is used to measure how long it takes for the blood to clot. It can also be called as INR which stands for International Normalized Ratio. The INR is used to standardize the result of PT no matter what the testing method is. If PT is more than 2.5 times the controlled value or when the INR is more than 4.0, the person tested is in high risk for bleeding.

This will be the last time I ever plan on reviewing PT and PTT: It is a group of tests known as a coagulation profile. Individually these tests are commonly referred to as: - PT [Prothrombin Time] - PTT [Partial Thromboplastin Time] - INR [International Normalized
If you are taking an anticoagulant or a blood thinner, like Warfarin (Coumadin), then it is important to keep your PT/INR (Prothrombin Time and International Normalized Ratio) levels stable. PT/INR measure factors of blood coagulation. In order to maintain stable PT/INR levels you should not eat more than 1 serving of a high vitamin K food, and no more than 3 servings of a food with moderate amounts of vitamin K. What is important is that your intake of vitamin K stays consistent. Having a…
