Every month need to go and have it checked and I was doing fine. I have been eating more salads over the course of the last few months. All of a sudden my coumadin level started to go haywire.It was dropping and it went as low as 1.7. I figured the only thing different was the large amount of salads and none of the vegetables should have sent me all over the board. My range is 2.5 to 3.5, One time after4 years of being on it, I registered a 3.0. Finally perfect. Happy , happy, joy, joy. Well since while I was consuming the salads my level dipped I figured stop the salads. They were checking me every 2 weeks to make sure I was okay. So I stopped them and then the level went up to 5.1 and 2 weeks later 5.7. What the "He double hockey sticks was going on. At the last visit 2 weeks ago, I was at 1.9. I figured I had stopped the vegies completely, so I increased consumption, adding a spinach pizza, boost which is high in vitamin K, ate gingerbread cookies, but apparently I did a little too much. I scared the gal that does my test and she asked how I thought I would do and I wouldn't tell her what I did but from the conversation figured out by my stopping all the vitamin K not to eats, I had to get the vitamin K back in me and that was what brought it from the previous 5.4 to 1.9. I have leveled off and hope to have a normal reading. Any one else any comments?
