Does Vitamin K2 Thicken Blood
Would taking vitamin k2 help prevent blood clots that may occur whilst taking raloxifene for osteoporosis?
Is vitamin K supplement a blood thinner or a blood thickener? should I take vitamin k2 supplement while I am taking vitamin D 2000IU supplement?
Neither: Hi. Vitamin K is required for gamma-carboxylation of glutamic acid in the clotting factors. Too little vit. K makes you unable to make the clotting factors. This is basically how warfarin works. But clotting factors are tightly regulated, and taking a vit. K supplement if you're not deficient will have no effect on clotting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Vitamin k2 shows to regulate calcium by driving into bones where needed when calc is supplemented. If not suppl. And calc is high, can k2 help?
Possibly: If blood calcium is high it is almost always due to hyperparathyroidism though you say that has been ruled out- i would have it rechecked in a year or so and see a good internist to try to find what is causing this.
