Vitamin k nutrition

Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin k nutrition


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 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.
Avatar n tn s okay to get less than the vitamin K1 RDA, since the body makes vitamin K. The vitamin K RDA is based on vitamin K1, not vitamin K2 MK-7. Humans were meant to eat small amounts of vitamin K1 (not MK-7) from vegetables and other foods. Vitamin K (K1, K2 MK-7, K2 MK-4) supplements can cause liver damage, kidney damage (kidney tubal degeneration), dangerous blood clots, headaches, fatigue, weakness, irritability, dizziness, fainting, anemia, increased perspiration, skin rashes, and skin itching.

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.

778037 tn?1377986200 When I had my hysterectomy last year, I was able to go back to work for three weeks post recovery, and then was out for two months due to nutrional issues. My iron bottomed out, my folate was low, my vitamin D dropped due to my body having used its reserves for the surgery and recovery. It has been very hard trying to build my levels, considering I can barely eat with a barely functioning gallbladder (5.5% ejection fraction) and that everything I eat or drink bothers me.
Avatar m tn There are different types of anemia and having low iron is one type of anemia called Iron deficiency anemia. You stated that you had Vitamin B12 shots at one times due to levels had been very low. Pernicious anemia is a Vitamin B12 deficiency and blood tests can show high iron. I suggest you have your MD do an iron profile blood work with Vitamin B12 to see if you have an anemia and which type. As for potassium, I recommend you increase potassium daily in your diet.
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 n tn I usually go to the US Dept. of Agriculture to find nutrition amounts for various foods. For some reason they're not listing various lettuce types. I tried basic "lettuce" 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?

417564 tn?1287982827 In our research prior to our detox, we learned that a vitamin deficiency caused by methadone is the primary factor in pain associated with withdrawals. We then determined that a safe amount of vitamins is alot! We eased through the detox with far more ease than others. Our counselor kept telling me that I was not a doctor, but we were being careful, conscious...and applying common sense and natural healing techniques (very effective, not used by many dr.'s)...Still, doing great.
