Live life to the fullest

Because warfarin may be impacted by your diet and lifestyle, your PT/INR level may fluctuate. The goal is to lengthen the amount of time that your PT/INR is within your therapeutic range, maximising the benefits of the anticoagulation therapy, while minimizing the risks.

Don't let your anticoagulation therapy prevent you from living life to the fullest.
