High Vitamin K...:
http://www. Healthaliciousness. Com/articles/food-sources-of-vitamin-k.Php.
Only if on coumadin (warfarin): Vitamin k interferes with the actions of coumadin, (warfarin) but that it a big reason I don't like coumadin, (warfarin) as people on it suffer from lack of vit k. It makes more sense to take a steady amount of k-rich foods & adjust Coumadin (warfarin) dose accordingly. Some say to avoid k if you have g-6-pd deficiency, are on dialysis or have cirrhosis, but foods high in k should be fine; they just should not supplement with it. ...Read more

Depends on part!:
The reason for the contradiction is that the root (the part that is usually eaten) is not high in Vit K (only 2 mcg per 100 grams which is over 3 ounces) whereas the leaves contain 123 mcg per 100 grams- but I don't know anyone who eats horseradish leaves.
I advise those on Warfarin to take low doses of Vit K- see http://www. Lef. Org/magazine/2007/6/report_vitamink/Page-01 ...Read more
I have thrombocytosis. Can I continue to eat foods high in vitamin k? If so, will I be at risk for cva or mi?
Yes: Vitamin k merely keeps your clotting factors normal. This is a whole different division from the platelet department, and in fact interfering with these doesn't protect about the problems that thrombocytosis may cause. Your physician can manage your thrombocythosis -- I'm guessing you have essential thrombocythemia -- often the best treatment is "do nothing." best wishes. ...Read more

If your normal platelet count is at the high end of normal, could eating many veggies rich in vitamin K cause platelets to raise to 450, 000 -500, 000?
Veggies raising plat: Very unlikely that your platelets are increased due to eating vegetables. Platelets are also acute phase reactants. Meaning they may be transient high due to a minor infection or inflammation. Repeat platelet count after 3-4 weeks. If high may need further workup for thrombocytosis. ...Read more

Vit K from greens &:
One can get good amounts of vit k from dark leafy greens, esp. Kale, collards, spinach, beet, dandelion, turnip & mustard greens, broccoli, brussel sprouts, scallions, lettuce, spinach, asparagus etc.

At what point should IV vitamin K be administered if a pt has a high INR eg at 1.5, 2.1 or 2.2 does it depend on other pathology results platelet count is presently normal but was recently very low?
Vitamin k: Reverses the effects of Coumadin (warfarin) which thins the blood and increases the inr.

If the inr is elevated and you are not on Coumadin (warfarin) then you need a workup to determine the cause. ...Read more
