I'm still trying to get this right.... I take 12.5mg of warfarin daily. My doctor wants my INR range to be between 2-3. I eat approximately 20-30 mcg of vit k daily. Problem is when I test and it is 2.2 or less he wants to change my warfarin dose. I am due to have a bone density that is probably going to be screwed up due to my lack of vit k consumption. This is ridiculous. I am trying to convince him to raise my range but he wants documented proof that this is what should be done. I have found information on apsfa.com. Would like to know it there is a written "fact" sheet on this, that I can print to give him. He is who discovered I have this and up to this time haven't had anymore issues but I'm sure the lack of sufficient vitamin k is not good? Thanks in advance
