In which diseases/disorders is it not a good idea to eat foods high in vitamin k?

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.

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

Is it safe to consume over 1000% RDA of Vitamin K from food daily? (Mostly leafy greens)

Totally safe: 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!
