Vitamin k good

Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin k good


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..
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 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 How do you feel about the vitamin K shot? Are you going to give it to your new born?
Avatar m tn Well if it has iron, Vitamin A and K in it you might not be doing yourself any big favors as A&K are stored in the liver and you dont need extra and iron helps the virus to replicate so you really dont want to take that.

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 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 f tn After two hours babies hormones decrease and they begin to relax, during this period it a good time to start any procedures you choose to do. Oral Vitamin K is unlikely to upset your new little one, unlike the shot jabbed in their butt or thigh. It is also absorbed better since it is absorbed through the intestines.
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 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. If you are taking salad every day or other foods rich in Vitamin K, you must eat similar amounts each week.
535822 tn?1443976780 Be careful with taking too much vitamin K -- it's a blood clotting agent. Just need the right amount, not too much. Too little, though, and you're in trouble. Magnesium is responsible for relaxing the heart muscle, as well as other muscles. Most Americans have been conned into taking so much calcium, especially in dairy, which is low is magnesium, and too much calcium leaches magnesium from the body. Too much magnesium leaches calcium from the body.
Avatar m tn Welcome! Congrats on the weight loss. That's quite a dosage of vitamin D! How long have you been taking the supplements? Have they helped? I'm currently taking 7000iu per day. My body wasn't absorbing enough and my levels kept dropping. Its such a frustrating deficiency. It take a long time for the body to get back to normal (Im going on 5 months now and the symptoms vary day to day). You should also try to add some vitamin k in.
Avatar m tn For those of us taking coumadin monitoring our PT/INR (coumadin levels in the vernacular) is literally a life-or-death matter. My Dad passed away a year ago this June because he had a series of strokes due to NOT monitoring his levels (poor bugger loved salad). Unfortunately I have recently discovered that some "heart healthy" foods are really not so good for us on coumadin. Specifically cooking oils both the pourable kind and the stuff in the spray cans.
Avatar f tn Yes with my last pregnacy baby stayed in hospital for 2 days cos his vitamin d leavel were low but all good now had to give him vita k shots
Avatar f tn My brother says I should use Vaseline intestive repair dry skin tried on my face and didn’t cause any rashes I heard lots of other choices like vitamin e or coconut oil or olive oil but I want something that will hear it not make it worse cause already feels bad now please help me
Avatar m tn spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts) are rich in vitamin K, which can affect your INR. Don’t avoid vitamin K-rich foods completely — vitamin K is essential to our health. Studies show that eating regular, consistent amounts of vitamin K-rich foods is better for maintaining a stable INR, than not eating them at all, or eating varying amounts.

Avatar f tn 1000 mg a day of crystaline vitamin C should help with the skin fragility. Vitamin K deficiency is often (but not always) the cause of bruising. K is a prescription item too dangerous to take without a physician's approval, but a good multivitamin that contains 25% of the daily dose of vitamin K (not all do) should help a lot.
Avatar f tn I am. If your baby gets a cut and doesn't have the vitamin k, he/she might not have the ability to clot blood. I am also getting my son circumcised, so it's required.
Avatar f tn Warfarin which antagonizes vitamin K increases calcification of the arteries. Vitamin K is concerned with the formation of a protein called matrix gla protein (MGP). This protein protects against arterial calcification. It is clear that vitamin K deficiency leads to reduced formation of MGP and therefore, the onset of hypertension is promoted.
