Common Questions and Answers about Warfarin and blueberries


Avatar n tn To tell you the truth, there's nothing left that I can eat....between diabetes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> watching blood sugar levels, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> taking the blood thinner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> because of the a-fib, and a statin ( no grapefruit). For every yay, there's a nay. I was wondering if anyone out there feels like the palps build up over a few days and then they break into an episode of a-fib or some other equally aggraving arrhythmia?

I begin again the 5mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> on Saturday and go for protime on Monday to see if it has come down a tad into the target range .

Avoid taking any drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>warfarin</span> because these drugs interfere with platelet function or blood clotting.

1763947 tn?1334058919 From WikiAnswers: Does Coumadin have rat poison in it? "Answer: Coumadin (warfarin) is the active ingredient in rat poison. That being said, Coumadin is dosed, for humans, in a manner which prevents blood clotting (especially for those at risk), and does not act as a poison at the therapeutic dosage level. (However, when rats ingest the high concentrations of warfarin in rat poison, they bleed to death, internally.)" A longer, better and more precise answer is found on Wikipedia.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed nearly a year ago and have in the last six months changed my diet to be as healthy as I can be, lots of fresh fruit (especially red fruits and blueberries) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> raw veg, anything brown (e.g rice, pasta, bread, nuts) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lean low fat meat (less red meat).

Avatar m tn Wintertime supermarket’s frozen-food case for blueberries, blackberries, cherries, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> strawberries. Broccoli, zucchini, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> green peppers in tomato sauce. All contain salicylates, which, even in tiny amounts, may calm inflammation. Choose good fats, Eat Walnuts, cold-water fish such as salmon and sardines, and pumpkin seeds and flaxseed.
