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
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

Can u please advice me which foods contain vitamin K [for bone health], secondly, which foods are high in vit d if I can't take dairy or much fish? Thanku
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.
Outside of fish it is difficult to get adequate vit d from food- we need about 4000-8000 units/day for optimal levels. This is best from sun mid april- mid oct., in winter months I advise supplements! ...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

My vitamin k level was low at 17. Taking 80mg of vitamin k @day and eating foods with it as well, how long to raise it? Is 17 dangerous level?
Vitamin K helps: With many things but most importantly it helps with clotting factors in your blood. It is an essential nutrient but not indispensable. You can raise it slowly without having to worry that it will affect your daily life adversely or acutely. Continue eating green leafy vegetables and supplements daily.

I take 50 mg of metropolis morning and evening along with two diuretics, a friend suggested that I avoid vitamin k. Do I need to avoid any foods?
I am going to make: Several assumptions about your question. First, I assume you are taking diuretics and metopROLOL, a beta blocker. There should be no issues with vitamin K with these drugs. You do have to be careful not to deplete potassium (chemical symbol K!) on the diuretics. Vitamin K rarely needs to be supplemented, but intake (watch green leafies) needs monitoring if you are taking blood thinners/warfarin ...Read more
There is no known toxicity from high doses of Vitamin K from diet or supplemental K1 or K2, though one can get toxic from a synthetic form called K3.
in research studies doses of 45 mg/ay have been successfully used to treat osteoporosis with no reports of toxicity- that is 500 times the RDA for females!

Common sense: Despite "pop" claims, the last big study of vitamin k to prevent osteoporosis / osteomalacia was (as i'd expected) a miserable failure. Calcium supplements, though government-recommended, are less helpful nowadays than just being sure you have enough vitamin d. You'd do well to eat sensibly, stay physically fit, and recognize that internet stuff on "nutritional supplements" is mostly subscience. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
