Are you on coumadin (warfarin)?: If you are on coumadin (warfarin), (warfarin) then you need to make sure that you watch out your diet and being consistent with your diet -especially for food that contains high amount of vitamin k- like vegetables etc. Your doctor should be able to guide you regarding diet selection if you are on coumadin (warfarin). If you are on xarelto- well balanced food- that is low in fat-low salt diet would be good.
