Hello Anne, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
INR examination is an examination that is used to determine whether a person's blood has an interruption or not in the process of clotting. Meaningful results (not normal) are usually obtained when results of INR> 1, where these results mean that there is interference with blood clotting in the body. The results of the INR examination are slightly lower than the normal value, generally do not have a significant meaning, but if it is accompanied by certain symptoms, then the results of the examination will be further considered by your doctor.
While X-ray images of soft spots on the suprahiler, have several possible causes such as pneumonia, bronchopneumonia, tuberculosis, and several other possibilities. To ascertain what disease you are currently suffering from, you should check with your doctor while bringing an X-ray and also your blood lab, because basically a disease diagnosis can not only be determined based on the results of additional examinations without looking at the physical condition and also complaints from patient, so it cannot be concluded whether your X-ray result is indeed a tuberculosis or not without seeing the results of a physical examination and also your complaints, and possibly other test results that can be used to support the diagnosis of the disease.
For now, if you really feel the symptoms of tuberculosis, you should immediately see a doctor, you are also advised to wear a mask when coughing or sneezing. Eat nutritious foods and it is also advisable to do regular exercise. Also make sure that the air vents and sunlight coming into the house are good.
I hope this helps.
