Great idea if it works for you!
I asked a person who works at the clinic next door to my building to find out costs and other details regarding INR instruments.
Apparently, most MDs are not keen on signing the paperwork, as there are too many potential unwanted associated issues/headaches for them,
so finding a willing MD to sign could be a bit of a challenge.
She said that there are companies called IDTFs that can help you get one.
There are 2-3 different FDA approved brands and the cost is average $2000 , but check if you have coverage according to your exact condition.
IDTFs will help with that. You may also inquire about leasing one, if it's available.
You cannot do your own testing if you have APLA syndrome,
as the results won't be reliable.
Best, check with your clinic's or doctor's office staff where you get treated,
as they must have all this information.
