Good article. Report
I am on Warfarin blood thinner for 3 clots in one lung, I eat a average of 3 times the amount of vitamin K needed. If I ate less I would not be healthy. My I.N.R. is 2.2. I want to get it to 2.5-3.5 the healthy number for people on blood thinners. I get tested 2 times per. week. I track vitamin K on self It lists vitamin K and Potassium separately, vitamin K 1 is Potassium, vitamin k is also referred to vitamin k 2. They are not the same and Spark tracks them together, that is why it is not correct for people that need to know the amount. You can look up a list of foods with any vitamin you want, it has a complete list of all 20 proteins, all 9 omegas and you can look up foods by the % of carbs, fat and protein you want combined, to get the exact amount at every meal. I will be on a precise diet for the rest of my life, also intolerant to gluten, eggs, most dairy and high acid foods and have minor kidney disease. My diet is complicated now. Report
I know I'm not getting half the vitamins I need by nutrition so I do an oral vitamin. Report
Funny how people differ. My mom has too much vitamin K. I have to bring her to Quest every couple of weeks to have her blood checked out. Her blood is thick with the stuff so we have to keep tabs on it. Report
I was looking for vitamin K- not in the article, but it comes up at the second "resource" on Spark search for vitamin K. I haven't found anything yet on spark about vitamin K. Report
Just as one example of a recent well-documented medical report on vitamin D, check out
11. This report established no negative side effects for 40,000 IU daily (an amount much higher than I would take). The article argues for new recommendations for vitamin D recommendations. Many doctors are arguing for 8000 IU daily as the recommended dose but this article gives good evidence that 14,000 IU may be better to reach the appropriate serum 25 D levels for 97.5% of the US population. It remains to be seen how long it will take for this kind of information to become more commonly known among the general M.D. population who don't have nearly enough time to read and keep up on research.
