What is the best diet for those who are diabetic and on Coumadin (warfarin)?

I am currently caring for my dad who uses Coumadin and is diabetic. I am looking for menus/recipes with regards to his conditions. Menus would be helpful, as I work during the day.

Dr. Gourmet Says...

A diabetic and Coumadin-user friendly shrimp and pasta dish

We now know that the Mediterranean style diet is the best diet for diabetics. Here's an article on the newest evidence on the best diet for type 2 diabetics.

All of the recipes on the Dr. Gourmet website are based on Mediterranean style diet principles. There are hundreds of Coumadin (warfarin) safe recipes at, and each recipe is labeled as to whether it is safe for Coumadin users, those with GERD, those who are lactose-intolerant or allergic to wheat gluten. You will also find a wealth of information on eating for those taking Coumadin in our section for those taking Coumadin (warfarin).

Our free meal planning tool, The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan, will help you create custom menus complete with recipes and shopping lists.

Thanks for writing,
