    What does this test mean, and what does the result mean?

    I am getting ready to start that Harvoni, but they took some tests and I would really like to know what this one test means, and what the result means? Here it is: f low-intensity warfarin therapy with conventional-intensity warfarin therapy for long-term prevention of recurrent venous thromboembolism. The result was: F 11.9 (h) which means high. Can somebody tell me what this is for, and what is high and if that is a problem?
