I am on Coumadin 5 mg daily. I get a pt ptt blood test every two weeks.
When the doctor gets the report quite often he has me to double
up on my medication for one night. I eat a lot of salads minus
the lettuce. Normally I put tomatoes, celery, green, yellow and
red peppers and salad dressing. My question is, do any of these items
or a combination have large amounts of vitamin K? Thank you.
Dr. Gourmet Says...
Most veggies have lower amounts of Vitamin K - under 20 micrograms (mcg)
per serving. By themselves this may not be a lot of Vitamin K
and might not affect your INR. All of them added up might, however.
You can find out the nutritional content of any ingredient by logging
into the Quality Calorie Diet Planner and
clicking the Food Diary tab. Add all of the foods you
eat daily, including the salad ingredients, and the system will
show you the amount of Vitamin K you're eating each day
The menu planning software also helps you create weekly menus that are
safer for Coumadin users. Click the Weekly Menus tab.
Thanks for writing,
Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.
