I hope not I love chocolate.

I did not have any last week before my fortnightly test and I have dropped 0.2 from 3.7 to 3.5 but they did reduce my Warfarin slightly. Have a great weekend and enjoy the chocies.

It is not on my list of avoids . Have a good BH weekend. It is like Piccadilly Circus down yere in Devon at the moment so I'm staying in and having my youngest son's 21st party. Saturday night where I will no doubt consume more wine than is sensible and loads of chocolate!

Lovely dog, give him pat for me.

Chocolate wont affect the warfarin, I have never had any problems with it, except of course, it does add on the calories.

Keep well
