My dilemma is I since being on warfarin/ Coumadin I have been monitoring the vit k content of each morsel of food I put in my mouth. I suffer from OCD. My Dr had told me to watch all green vegetables and anything containing vit k. I now realize this was a mistake for I took it to the extreme. I would have been much more successful had he just told me to not eat the green leafy veggies that are high: kale, spinach, lettuce then I would have eaten as I normally would have minus these foods that are very high. I was adjusting my vit k to cover the Coumadin. I should have eaten normally and let him adjust the Coumadin, instead I did it backwards. The problem is that I do not have a routine of what I eat so I am afraid to revert back to my "normal" pattern of eating prior to my having a stroke because I am afraid that if I eat the things I like routinely at this point in time I may possibly throw a clot and have another stroke. How can I do this safely, any thoughts/ suggestions would be appreciated. I self check my INR once a week per my Drs direction. I know you are not medical authorities but thoughts would be appreciated as how to manage returning to my, so called "normal" as I have lost over twenty pounds and do not want to lose any more. Thank you😬
