Thanks, I'll check it out. And yes, I guess I am on it for life. When I asked the cardiologist if or when I could stop taking it, he said maybe when I'm 90 and start to fall alot. LOL!

Since you are on Coumadin for Atrial Fib your probably on it now for life. Did you notice the Blood Thinner Group on Spark People. Check out the posts there. I have made a few comments regarding eating veggies and blood thinners.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll check on that book. It sounds like a really great resource. I'm on the same dose as you and my blood work has always been within range but I avoid a lot of foods that I wish I could eat, like romaine lettuce, cabbage, and broccoli. I take the coumadin to prevent clots from atrial fibrillation and also because I have had pulmonary emboli. I haven't been in Afib for over a year but the cardiologist says I have to keep taking the coumadin because of my history.

I have been on 5mg Coumadin a day for the past 16 months and have my blood levels checked every month. So far I've not encountered any problems and have not needed the dose of the medication changed. I eat just about anything in moderation and am slowly losing weight.

Since I don't know what health problems you are dealing with, I'd suggest you speak with your doctor or perhaps a nutritionist? There are Coumadin Cookbooks that may also be helpful. I have one by Rene Desmarais, MD.

Take care.

Is anyone else taking coumadin and dealing with the limits this puts on your diet? So many of the great veges are not allowed that I find myself frustrated trying to have a little variety.Anyone have any suggestions?
