View Full Version : My Dad needs Help
05-10-2012, 02:18 AM
He's 65, 300lbs, diabetic, plastic heart valve...
Because of the medication he's on, he's not allowed to eat foods with vitamin K, which as I understand it, includes dark leafy greens.
Can he be successful on a Raw Diet without dark leafy greens???

yes he can ... any raw is better than no raw.

Is your Dad willing to try a raw food lifestyle? I hope he is; he'd reap so much benefit from it.

"So, if I am on warfarin, should I avoid eating foods that contain vitamin K? By now you should know that the answer to this question is "no." It is a common misconception that people on warfarin should avoid vitamin K. As is indicated above, reducing your vitamin K intake can cause your INR to increase and may make it more difficult to control. Rather than avoiding vitamin K, you should maintain a consistent intake of vitamin K by maintaining a consistent diet. In other words, from week to week, you should eat the same types of foods." http://www.clotcare.com/vitaminkandwarfarin.aspx

Ugh, warfarin is nasty nasty nasty! Last year the bumbling doctors I had gave it to me because they thought I had a pulmonary embolism when I had pneumonia and it almost killed me.
However the information they gave me at the time did say you need to eat the same amount of leafy greens every week because at first the doctors adjust the warfarin level to your body, which includes how you eat. If you wanted to change the amount you were consuming you needed to go back to your doctor and be monitored a short while until they can adjust it to go with a new eating plan.
