Vitamin k and potassium

Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin k and potassium


Avatar f tn Tingly feet, legs and hands, unbalanced and lightheaded and have passed out a few times. Now, with my new bloodwork my Vitamin K is elevated at 1453. I have no idea what this means. Am I not processing vitamins correctly in my body because of the MTHFR gene mutation. My doctors don't seem to have an answer for me.
Avatar m tn Even if there is no direct interaction between Plavix and Vitamin K, is it known whether vitamin K will still act to promote clotting in the presence of Plavix?
Avatar f tn s sports drink, is packed with vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium, potassium, sodium, and magnesium. It is a natural isotonic drink used to rehydrate the body and is similar to human plasma (blood). Read more: Cocunut water is high in potassium and if your potassium is too high it could cause palpitations. Everything works differently for everyone.
Avatar m tn As an ischemic patient I can tell you that I avoid the formulations with Vit. K, Potassium, Iron, Tocoferol (Use Beta carotene instead) and too much Calcium. And this is not because it will increase my BP but they can des-stabilize my heart.
1298588 tn?1330318981 In my country, we often lack vitamin D in the winter (cold and little sun) so we take fish oils or vitamin D supplements. Whenever I do this through a multivitamin, my B12 gets too high. No vitamin directly affect the heart rhythm, but several minerals do. Make sure your potassium, calcium and magnesium are within normal limits. As DeltaDawn said, vitamin K can be a problem when you have A-fib (coumadin is as far as I know, a vitamin K "blocker").
Avatar f tn Just got an email from the np that said she had talked to the doctor and wants to put me on Vitamin k 10 mg daily. I gave her the pharmacy number and asked her to send me the lab results. Still waiting to hear back. Have any of you had to do this before? What is the Vitamin k used for? Thanks!
Avatar m tn Vitamin K is an essential vitamin but too much can be toxic to the liver. Vitamin K2 has shown more benefits to the liver, particularly in the area of fibrosis, also known as MK7, you can read more about it on the life extention web site. I think the verdict is out on whether this is a good thing or not for liver patients, and especially while on tx the risks may outweigh the benfit..
1702615 tn?1421812248 especially because at one point I started eating asparagus daily and it seemed to make me feel better. I then looked up the nutrients of it and it appears to be full of vitamin K. I really should eat it daily, since it seemed to make me feel better. Yes, my problems remain, still a mystery. Some kinda good days, some not so good, but I just keep trying to do what I am called to do amidst it all.
Avatar m tn I understand how you feel. I have had Vit D defiences also and I also have pain.But My pain is not related to the defiency. I would ask your dr. to order a xray , and then if that shows nothing to go for a MRI of the area that is in pain. You could have a slipped disc, a herniated disc, or even arthritis of the spine. I beleive your pain is real but unrelated to the Vit D def. Is your pain in lower back, mid back?
Avatar m tn the closing and relaxing of a muscle is dependent on the four mineral horseman of function, calcium (Ca), sodium (Na), magnesium (Mg), and potassium (K). Sodium constricts and potassium relaxes, with Ca and Mg initiating each phase of the action. If an individual is low in potassium, it appears that that singular event of low potassium can be sufficient to permit a cramp to occur.
Avatar n tn I have heard that there is some problem mixing vitamin K with a blood thinner. I am taking 75 mg of plavix and cannot find anything about the vitamin K interaction. I need additional calcium, and the brand I am looking at taking would give me 40mcg of vitamin K. Is this safe or a problem? Where can I find how much vitamin K is in a serving of broccoli or spinich?
Avatar f tn I have read of using a constant daily low dosage (100mcg) of vitamin K to resolve INR instability the theory being that the instability may be due to a vitamin K deficiency and the constant dosage gives a bias level for the coumadin to work against. Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on this?
Avatar n tn In essence, the closing and relaxing of a muscle is dependent on the four mineral horseman of function, calcium (Ca), sodium (Na), magnesium (Mg), and potassium (K). Sodium constricts and potassium relaxes, with Ca and Mg initiating each phase of the action." Now that paragraph pretty much sums up the common causes of cramps. Magnesium is the boss of calcium, potassium and sodium and vitamin D. Mess with magnesium and you mess with all of them. I know!
Avatar f tn i have wierd bruising all over my body along my arms down my sides and on my legs, i also have been losing alot of my hair, i have lost 20 lbs in the past two weeks, im always tired but i get lots of sleep, i am always tired, i get numbness in my hands and feet quick and often and for no reason, i also get headaches alot and my heart skips beats and i have really bad chest pain. i am on no medications, no birth control, and i take a daily vitamin.
168348 tn?1379357075 Just use magnesium ascorbate as your source of vitamin C. One newer study revealed that combining potassium and magnesium reduced the risk of recurrent calcium oxalate stones by 85% over the three years the study was conducted. And conclusive analysis shows that taking 200 mg. of calcium with each meal dramatically reduces the risk of developing a calcium oxalate stone. That’s because the calcium combines with the oxalic acid in food, which prevents it from being absorbed.
Avatar n tn I also got supplements from my midwife but they only contain 400mcg folic acid, 10mcg vitamin D and 70mg vitamin C and I take a separate ferrous fumarate tablet at night (210mg). So I only take two tablets a day. The other vitamins and minerals I try to get from food and tea (like nettle tea where one cup can provide enough daily calcium, vit A,B, K, potassium, zinc, sodium, phosphorus etc).
Avatar f tn Potassium is a chemical element and it is part of the electrolyte that should be in balance with other lytes to adequately conduct an electrical impulse that originates with the sinus node in the right atrium. The mechanism of action is not completely understood, but what is when a voltage (unit of potential for conduction) and electrolyte there will conduction and passage of electrical impluses.
Avatar f tn The mg your on is standard. I concerned me since with IC pain there is the discussion of the use of Potassium and increasing symptoms? Bottom line like everything with IC is that see if it works for you! You can get pH strips pretty cheaply usually through a healthfood store. It might helped to log your symptoms along with the pH of your urine when your having the burning and time you took the UROCIT-K. If it is helping stay on it and don't change the dose.
Avatar f tn I think those who are opposed to a vitamin K shot for baby should do more research. Vitamin K can prevent a bleeding disorder, not blood clotting. Vitamin K aids in the ability of blood to clot, which is why it is given to newborns as a preventative measure. A lactation consultant friend sent me a link to an article, which includes statistics, about this very debate. http://evidencebasedbirth.
Avatar f tn There are possible negative side effects and it's 20,000 times more then they need there are alternatives such as breastfeeding and oral versions of it. I'm doing the other shots and I will vaccinate my baby. But the vitamin K if you need to sign a consent to a shot I think it's a little questionable. I have an appointment tomorrow I'm going to talk with my doctor about my options. Because I want him to get his vitamin K I would just rather it through different means.
Avatar m tn Dandelion contains magnesium, potassium, manganese, copper, phosphorous, sodium, iron and silicon. The leaves are also rich in vitamin A. It also contains B vitamins, C, D, K and calcium. It is revered for it's ability to tonify the liver and to remove excess water from the body! Good health to you!! Some people get loose stools because it increases bile flow in the body - so don't take it when you have diarrhea.
Avatar f tn Muscle cramps could be due to inactivity, sleeping on one side-left side, electrolyte imbalances like calcium, vitamin D deficiency, magesium and potassium deficiency due to dehydration or dietary insufficiency. Consult a physician for evaluation who will assess your symptoms clinically along with the relevant blood test like serum electrolytes and vitamin D levels. Management would depend on the cause.
