I have to maintain my range until August of this year, then I will be re-evaluated then.
Being both a vegetarian, and a diabetic has made it hard for me having to take coumadin.
Everything that I don't eat or cannot eat is on the "please do eat list" and vice versa!
But I'm a survivor, hopefully I will some day show an improvement concerning my blood clots, I have no time to spend feeling sorry for myself, too much to see and to do in this world.
If you have any helpful links concerning Coumadin, I would appreciate it if you could either post them or forward them to me.

My range is 2.5 to 3. Whenever mine is higher than 3, I get to lower the dose. :) My goal is 1mg or 0. I really want to get off coumadin! I eat salad but I only use iceburg. I wasn't given any info I had to find it myself. I also have info on herbal contra-indications for coumadin.

Whitetigress, My blood thinness number must remain between 2.5 - 3.5, having it tested each week is beginning to annoy me, but that's my life currently, last week my number was 4.2 so my doctor told me to go ahead and eat some greens or salad to help my numbers drop back down to my range.
I was given a booklet with various vitamin k food totals listed in it, it helps but I will look for the link that you have sent me, thanks for both the information and the reminder!

Yes, I am in the process of going vegetarian (very close). Actually it is anything green that causes a problem . I left you a post (you might have to go a ways back now in the older posts). It is a website that tells you the vitamin k food totals for food. I still eat cucumber and zucchini, but I peel them. :)

Whitetigress, I am on Coumadin also, and Itoo have to watch my green leafy veggies, that's hard for me to do since I am also a vegetarian but I will try this with cauliflower (thanks for the suggestion).

I am on coumadin so I will have to substitute the broccoli with cauliflower, otherwise it sounds delicious. I will have to try this one!
