I am aware of the many foods that lower INR, but only know about Mango that could raise INR. Are there any other foods that raise INR.
Herb I couldn't agree more with you! When I was in the hospital last month, I had one doctor tell me my INR was high on admission. I asked what it was. He said 3.3. My range is 2.5 to 3.5 so I was in range, but this guy thinks thats high.Herb M said:Relying on physicians is not always the best thing to do. I think I know more than most of them about coumadin therapy. A few months ago I was told by a nurse in the doctors office that my INR is much too high and need to make a quick adjustment. Of course my INR was within range and she did not realize that my INR needs to be higher than someone not in coumafdin therapy.
That's why I mentioned possibly tweaking your dosage up. In one of your posts here, you said you were having a few more salads than usual.Herb M said:I have been at this for a long time, but I have stayed away from lettuce and spinach and do not care for broccoli. Recently I have increased the number of salads I eat. If I continue to do that, I will probably need an adjustment.
