Your pharmacist can suggest the best practices to get accurate readings and recommend devices that will meet your needs.
Anticoagulant Treatment Monitoring (INR)
If you are taking warfarin or anticoagulants, blood tests are necessary to ensure that your anti-clotting medication is on target.
If your blood doesn’t clot properly, you could be at risk of dangerous bleeding or, on the contrary, blood clots. Your pharmacist can prescribe this test as needed and adjust your medication. You do not need to have a heart condition to get this test.
Getting your cholesterol levels checked is an important step of preventing heart-related diseases and stroke, especially since there are usually no symptoms associated with high cholesterol.
Your pharmacist can prescribe this simple blood test if needed and make sure your cholesterol medication is working as it should.
