My last blood work I had done indicated that my cholesterol level is rising and the cardiologist is trying to keep me off a statin. I am on plavix, aspirin , and coumadin therapy. I cannot tolerate dry cereal due to the sugars, so I recently started making fresh oatmeal and found I really liked it. Oatmeal is supposed to be good for you so why not try that to helo with the cholesterol, however it pushed my INR down to a 1.7. My range is 2.5 to 3.5 and I have been doing very well up till this last check. I never even thought of the oatmeal contains Vitamin K. It does not show it on the box, but I found it in my guides. I am so bummed right now. I am trying to eat healthier, and this was really disheartening.
