Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin k lettuce


Avatar n tn and found that 1 cup of cooked lettuce (yuck) has 19.4 mg of vit K. Any other idea how I might search for radicchio? Is it related to something else I could search?
Avatar n tn Vegetables that are highest in Vitamin K include spinach, kale, parsley, swiss chard, Brussels sprouts, lettuce, broccoli and turnip greens. If you want to eat larger amounts, be consistent with how much you eat day to day, so that your medication can be monitored correctly via your blood tests. Try to stick with vegetables low in Vitamin K such as corn, carrots, cauliflower, eggplant, onions, green beans, peppers and tomato.
1488195 tn?1288153991 The reason blood tests are important is because of diet. Vitamin K, present in most green foods such as broccoli, spinach, lettuce etc, affect the performance of Warfarin because this medication relies on a fairly constant vitamin K level in the Liver to work properly.
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 How do you feel about the vitamin K shot? Are you going to give it to your new born?
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 I was scared at first too, but don't worry! There's two kinds of vitamin A (or rather two ways it's absorbed). Stuff like carrots and lettuce and other veggies that are high in vitamin A are good for you, and because of the way your body absorbs it, it's okay to eat that kind. You want to avoid stuff like liver.
Avatar f tn Eat breakfast every morning, special k cereal is a great start with 2% milk, a small piece of fruit and tea.
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 was reading yesterday that after the baby born the midwife will ask you if you agree to give him vitamin k . This is new for me ( FTM) ..of course if it is good for my son l will do it, just want to know if you have been through this ?
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?
612551 tn?1450022175 4 or 2.5, that way I figure if I eat a little too much lettuce or too little of the vitamin k foods, it won't matter. I once sunk my INR like a rock by eating a large spinach salad -- didn't occur to me until after that it was too much for one sitting.
Avatar f tn If you are afraid of not having enough, you can explore taking vitamin K supplements yourself. Vitamins are better absorbed through food though, for Vit K try eating salads, broccoli, and cauliflower. There may be more, but those are the ones that come to mind off of the top of my head. There is evidence that cutting the cord too soon leads to more problems, such as bleeding on the brain and in the lungs than babies not given the vitamin K shot.
198506 tn?1251156915 I would like to eat more veggies at lunch and I think salads would be a good way of accomplishing that. So, can anyone give me ideas on spicing up the usual lettuce/tomato/cucumber combination? I am not a big fan of raw broccoli, carrots or peppers but pretty much I am willing to try anything healthy. Thanks in advance.

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.
5110781 tn?1378361950 Anyone planning on not giving their newborn the vitamin k shot or the eye drops?
Avatar n tn Actually, carrots are very sweet, and should be an occational treat. Something such as sweet peppers or romaine lettuce are much better, and will provide the vitamin C that guinea pigs need. See for the best advice on guinea pig care.
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 m tn The nutrients most affected are calcium, iron, folic acid, vitamin K and many B vitamins. See pernicious anemia.
