Hey all! Have any of your doctors informed you of the risks of warfarin?
I just came upon some informaiton regarding the impact of warfarin on the arteries. Essentially, warafin contributes to calcification because it acts against vitamin K, which has a protective impact.
Additionally, it looks like vitamin D can exacerbate this process. And on Dr. Jack Kruse's website, he mentions that he gets his patients who are anticoagulation therapy off Coumadin so that he can go forward with fixing their vitamin D deficiencies. (he mentions use of Pradaxa, Lovenox and asparin).
Is anyone else aware of this? Have any of your doctors addressed this concern of arterial calcification? If so, what have they done for you?
