Hi, I had a blood clot phlebitis then thrombosis which led to a PE. I also have diverticulitis which makes me particularly susceptible to bleeding caused by the anticoagulant effect.
Its getting to me to be honest and am wondering about quality of life etc.
Having read some books, I see a mainly plant based diet is a good idea for diverticulitis, avoiding seeds, processed foods, and going with plenty of soluble vegetable matter. So it got me thinking that perhaps undigested food was in some way responsible for my clot. So much literature shows that clots and heart disease are not at all present in parts of the world where they follow mainly plant based diet, whole foods etc.
I am enbarking on a vegetarian diet with no fine ground flours or processed foods, each day fill my boots with loads o veg. Eventually I want to stop the Apixaban.
Its a risk, I know, but am not sure I can cope with the effects the Apixaban has on me, lowered libido, depression.
I have sometimes not taken my med and it seems ok.
Interested in comments /thoughts on the diet with regards to the risk of clotting.
