Since about October, my INR levels have nosedived to 1.0/1.1. This happens to be about the time I developed type 1 diabetes, but I am assured that these two facts have nothing to do with each other. I was put on Lovenox prior to being diagnosed as diabetic in late October. now 3 times since this event, I have been on and off of Lovenox and still can't get above a 1.5 at 8-8.5 mgs of Warfarin.
I have changed to a low-carb, diabetic friendly diet and the only greens is celery, but not in large amounts.
My "Experts" (case nurse, cardiologist) assure me that my diet and diabetese should not be affecting my INR, but frankly I have serious doubts about them nowadays because all they do is put me through round after round of these D*** Lovenox injections and barely increase my warfarin dosage with no improvement. They say there is no alternative, but by now I feel that this d*** Lovenox regimen is useless and they are somehow missing an underlying cause.
