INR is the international normalized ratio. It determines the thinness of your blood so people who are not on Coumadin should normally have an INR of 1. If your blood needs to be thin because you have a mechanical heart valve your INR should be targeted in the 2.5 range between 2 and 3. If for example if you have an irregular heartbeat like atrial fibrillation your INR should be closer to 1.5. Talk with your physician about your INR if you’re on Coumadin and what that means for you.
