Does eating avocado & dry oregano affect my Coumadin (warfarin) dosage? My last rnr level was 2.4. Im taking 2.5 mlg everyday except tu & fri (i take 5mlg)

Does eating avocado & dry oregano affect my Coumadin (warfarin) dosage? My last rnr level was 2.4. Im taking 2.5 mlg everyday except tu & fri (i take 5mlg)

Yes, they can: Avacado and oregano both have vitamin k and can alter inr levels. If you take the same amount daily, the Coumadin dose will be adjusted around this. Don't make any sudden diet changes, especially with an artificial heart valve. http://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/food-sources-of-vitamin-k.php http://www.Ptinr.Com/warfarin-you/dietary-food-beverage/food-interactions/avocado-and-warfari. ...Read more

Been taking aprox 5 tabs ibuprofen every 6 hrs all summer. plus tylonal.  now very sick. extrememly weak, its like im shutting down.  what to do?

Pain: What's going on? We are obviously missing a great deal of information about you since we don't even know your age let alone your medical history and why you are taking ibuprofen so often. Please see a doctor urgently, I mean now. I'm also suspicious of significant mental health pathology in addition to anatomic and physiologic injury that you may have sustained by self medicating. ...Read more

How long have you been on these meds that are not working? If you are not satisfied with your doctor, please ask more questions and if he/she cannot answer, please see a cardiologist for proper evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

Pregnant in 6 weeks and no heart beeb? Blood sugar 210, weight 105 kg, 31 yrs. when heart beeb start & when to worry ?

Depends: A vaginal ultrasound can usually show a beating heart by week 6 of a pregnancy (dated accurately), but an ultrasound on the belly often won't see it until week 7 or so depending on machine quality and skill of the ultrasonographer. If you're trying to listen with a little Doppler (sound only, no picture), you can't expect to hear a beat until week 12 even if you're good. ...Read more

Thyroid treatment: A TSH of 3.7, and a FT4 of 0.9, is about normal in most labs. You probably need a slightly higher dose of levothyroxine over what you are taking now, but you do not describe symptoms. Whether you have anti-TPO antibodies, or not, will not affect treatment. ...Read more
