I haven't had to adjust for losing weight, but I don't have much to lose...If I had a lot to lose, I would certainly be more cautious...The only thing I have to watch is the green vegetables... I would suggest avoiding cabbage...I found it really affected my clotting times.

Lasher, Thanks for the welcome. I appreciate hearing from someone with so much experience. Have you had to adjust your medication when loosing weight?
I've just been switched to getting tested once per month. While I don't enjoy getting tested it makes me nervous not knowing what my level is.

Hi Juliana,

Welcome to the team...I find it doesn't get much traffic though... I have been taking blood thinners for more than 20 years because of an artificial heart valve.

I find that what works best for me is just to eat the veg I want (peel the cucumbers and zucchini, stay away from green tea) and just increase my warfarin...but it really depends how good your health insurance is...The only thing is you have to be consistent...I have trouble with that, and I still need to test every 2 weeks after all this time!

Hi all! I'm glad to find this group. In early March I had a major blood clot in my leg which led to multiple PE's. Since I've been fighting with my weight most of my life -this didn't help. In the past I've lost weight by eating a lot of what you should ex. green veggies . Now of course that has changed. I've also worked out a lot in the past and now my legs bother me. My weight has been increasing. I've decided that I need to put a stop to that starting today.
