Unstable INR: There are many foods and supplements that affect blood viscosity (thinness/thickness); some contain vitamin k which tends to thicken blood; others act like blood thinners. See following site for lists of both as well as info on how to take blood thinner most effectively: http://ods.Od.Nih.Gov/pubs/factsheets/coumadin1.Pdf.
