A friend was telling me about how his Nan was told to eat 2 kiwi fruit a day instead of being put on aspirin, ..., I told him sounds like horse doo doo to me but it appears he was right, now I'll have to tell him he was right...
Douh >.<

Well nothing wrong with being wrong for the right reasons.

Keep in mind that Kiwi has a fair amount of Vitamin K in it, approximately 27.8 micrograms per Kiwi (according to the U.S.D.A.), so if you start eating a lot of them and you notice an INR drop, it's probably that. And yes there are delicious, my youngest son and I can eat bowls of them by ourselves.

I have been eating KIwi fruit more fruits, vegetables and salads. So far I have lost 5 pounds. My Coumadin dosage was 5 MG per day to stay in my INR Range of 1.8-2.2.
Twice a week now I take 7.5 mg of Coumadin to maintain my proper INR Range.
