Should I avoid iron if I am on Coumadin (warfarin)?
I came across your recipes on the internet and am wondering if when taking Coumadin and not being able to eat anything with vitamin K or iron, why do most of your recipes have foods with iron as well. Iron also has blood clotting properties. Could you direct me to recipes without K or iron?
Dr. Gourmet Says...
Iron does not have blood clotting properties but is a key part of red blood cells. There is sometimes confusion because iron is an important part of hemoglobin, the molecule inside red blood cells that carries oxygen.
There is a long list of the recipes that are low in Vitamin K on the Dr. Gourmet web site just for folks like you, and here's general information on living with Coumadin (warfarin).
Thanks for writing,
Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.
