1488195 tn?1288157591 Warfarin is best suited, in areas of slowly-running blood, such as in veins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the pooled blood behind artificial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> natural valves, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> pooled in dysfunctional cardiac atria. So common clinical indications for warfarin use are atrial fibrillation, the presence of artificial heart valves, deep venous thrombosis (clots), and pulmonary embolism (where the embolized clots first form in veins).
Avatar n tn Her diet should include fruits and vegetables <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> should be rich in soluble fiber, calcium, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> omega-3 fatty acids.

Avatar n tn My husband has this condition, and his specialist has him on warfarin, simvastatin, atenelol,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> baby aspirin. He goes to the coumadin(warfarin) clinic once a month, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> has been staying in range, except it seem when the eather changes, he spikes either up or down, depending on the temperature. It seems to me if someone could bother to explain what the effect of certain environmental and dietary changes have, we could make adjustments as necessary.
Avatar n tn I eat lots of leafy greens <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span> everyday. You may be asked to curb the intake of Vitamin K (that is what triggers the clotting response) items a few weeks while the thinners get started, but the key is eating a consistent amount of vegies that contain vitamin K. Consistency is the key here, since your dosage of Warfarin or coumadin can be adjusted to compensate for eating these items.
Avatar n tn I have seen lists on the web so scan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> you can find something. I've been slaped down for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, pure genger suppliments, and a lot of other greens.

738075 tn?1330579444 Also be aware that there are some foods that interact adversely with warfarin too. Spinach. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, garlic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> soy are on that list. You are smart, so do the research on what works and doesn't work with this drug, and follow those precautions. Basically, don't take anythiing until you know it is ok. Now for the DVT, I am so glad you realized what you were dealing with and didn't let it go on for long. DVT's can be deadly. you're fortunate to be on treatment to resolve the clot.
942410 tn?1274050674 That's why I am not going to be injecting the Lovenox any longer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> today I skip my 5mg warfarin . I begin again the 5mg warfarin on Saturday and go for protime on Monday to see if it has come down a tad into the target range .
Avatar f tn Alcohol interacts adversely with Warfarin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> increases the INR. coumadin /warfarin interacts with foods that contain Vitamin K. Vitamin K works against coumadin /warfarin and makes it less effective. Please try to eat consistent amounts of Vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, kale, collard greens, cabbage, and salad greens are some sources of Vitamin K, but there are many others.
29837 tn?1414538248 Hey I have a wonderful recipe that has <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, garlic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> olive oil. Very tasty, healthy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> something to zip up the everyday boring broccoli. Cut and steam broccoli to your desired doneness but remember it will cook longer in the olive oil. A clove or two of fresh garlic chopped finely. I use two A Tablespoon of olive oil into frying pan.
770426 tn?1235065089 I can't remember, was it for afib? This is great news for you. Now you can have a bowl of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a margarita <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> not have to worry about your INR :-) I really miss eating my greens. Yes, I'm on both Warfarin and 325 aspirin for the full 3 months. But it's only 23 days now and counting until I can join you. Ireneo -I laughed out loud at your toilet paper story.
Avatar m tn I'm overweight, take a daily prescribed regimen of baby aspirin, multi-vitamin, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin D, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 6mg warfarin. I'm a lymphoma cancer survivor (2 years beyond chemo), don't smoke, drink alcohol only occasionally in moderation and even less caffeine, exercise somewhat irregularly, had lots of ear aches as a child associated with bronchitis but because I'm 61 now I don't think my childhood ear aches have anything to do with it.
Avatar f tn The way you prepare food also matters -- for example, spinach is best eaten raw, whereas <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, kale, collards <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the like are best cooked. So it's more complicated. The good thing is, you do a lot better with vegetables than any other category of food, but if you ate too many vegetables you'd be left without room for fats and protein, which are also essential.
Avatar n tn Ian you have to understand two things that Vitamin K is a pro-coagulant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Warfarin is an anti-coagulant. Hence if you are taking both at present, then you need to discuss this issue with your PCP. There are lots of healthy diets which will help you in making your bones stronger. You should take lot of calcium rich food like Non fat yogurt, Collard Greens, Pink Salmon (canned with bones), Skim Milk, Calcium Fortified Orange Juice, Almonds, Turnip Greens, Soy Beans and broccoli among others.
Avatar f tn If you are worried avoid vit k things like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span> contain high levels <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> can effect clotting in patients on warfarin , if I have a few tops of broccoli a week my blood thickens on my INR blood test
Avatar m tn Taking medicines that can affect the action of blood thinners (such as warfarin) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> vitamin K. These include antibiotics, aspirin, cimetidine (Tagamet), barbiturates, birth control pills, hormone therapy (HT), and vitamin K supplements. Having severe diarrhea or vomiting that causes fluid loss and dehydration. This may make the PT time longer.

Avatar f tn Me, I use it as an excuse not to eat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, brussels sprouts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> other foods I do not like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> which are high in vitamin K.
Avatar n tn My 39 year old husband had an attach of severe chest pains a couple of weeks ago and they found two pulmonary emboli. He is being treated with Warfarin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they have been unable to find a specific cause for these clots. We have been told by his physician that he is now at increased risk for future clotting and that recurrences are more often fatal or debilitating than the initial attack (this is in keeping with some reading I've done).
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar m tn Certain foods (such as beef <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> pork liver, green tea, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, chickpeas, kale, turnip greens, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> soybean products) contain large amounts of vitamin K and can alter PT results. The vitamins you are taking could be the cause of your PT INR being a fraction low. I dont know why you are having a temporary tracheotomy when oxygen (via mask) can also give the same effect and relief.
Avatar m tn soluble fiber [dietary supplement such as psyllium powder or in foods such as oats, barley, rye, legumes (peas, beans), fruits such as apples, prunes, and berries, vegetables such as carrots, brussel sprouts, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, yams], plant stanols <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sterols (such as beta-sitosterol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sitostanol) you can find sterol products at pharmacies; omega 3 fish oil.
9088869 tn?1401643539 Vitamin K will reverse the effect of Warfarin so I have to be careful of the leafy green vegetables I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the quantity, that included <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, slaw, any greens <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> especially collards <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Kale that have a lot of Vitamin K. Moreover, to add to the tight rope I walk with keeping the INR within my therapeutic range is whether I'm hyper or hypothyroid. One will lower the effects of Warfarin while the other will increase it.
Avatar m tn Wintertime supermarket’s frozen-food case for blueberries, blackberries, cherries, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> strawberries. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>broccoli</span>, 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. A tablespoon of ground flaxseed on breakfast cereal a handful of walnuts eat fish at least twice a week Omega-3-enriched eggs.
Avatar m tn warfarin is much more powerful and you would only use that in certain situations. Also with warfarin you have to have regular blood tests to check your clotting factor which is important. Even a diet change can influence the effects of this medication. Unless absolutely necessary, a Cardiologist wouldn't put you onto this medication. As for Garlic and Ginger, I have no idea how they chemically work on platelets, but there are different chemical signals with trigger them to clot.
Avatar f tn I am only 43, and although I am doing what I can by taking the prescribed vitamins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> working towards a heart-healthy diet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> more exercise, I feel like it's improbable that I can keep loss of vision at bay forever. What is the timeline with this disease? I have dry type, but I don't know whether it's beginning, intermediate or advanced. From what I saw on the photos, I have round yellow drusen in both eyes (not the little pinprick kind).
Avatar f tn i was told recently, fake it till i make it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i did,it helped i find i am faking it less <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> less. now how long does it take to feel good, everyone is different, lots of variables,enviroment, genetic predisposition to addiction etc.

NOTE: You folks out there who love broccoli, Kale, Cabbage, Brussell Sprouts, all the leafy greens loaded with Vitamin K?
Avatar n tn They had put me on Warfarin as well as a heart rhythm ...the SR stuff. I had a cardioversion done a month later <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> right away I could tell the difference between in and out of sinus and the calmness when in as well as how much easier it was to breath. I was in for around a week and one night I could feel it coming, and I was out. I was switched to Taxtia XT 300mg per day and had another cardioversion done, and that lasted maybe 2 weeks, and then back out again.
Avatar n tn Any way I also would be interested in what anyone might have to say about it and or what they may have learned from this if they know or even think this to be the case for them and would also like to correspond with others to trade stories <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> info on what they've learned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> done. Be well. Sincerely, Rich - ***@**** This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/337994'>Stomach Gas and Arrythmia</a>.
