Consultant cardiologist Dr Roy Gardner said: "Patients who are taking anticoagulants are generally advised not to eat too many green leafy vegetables, as they are full of vitamin K, which antagonise the action of this vital medication."

Be careful mixing your green leafys and meds and you'll do just fine. I like 'em with lots of butter. Bon appetit!

I like brussel sprouts, turnip, and licorice — and my wife hates all three. I believe at least some of these things are preferred/not preferred based on a genetic marker of some sort.

every person on coumadin is lectured constantly about not taking in too many green veggies, among other foods....

this guy has a mechanical heart which cost the state hundreds of thousands and now he deliberately does the one thing he was told not too....

he should pay his own bill....

IMO 1 Brussels sprout is too many.
I like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli. Sprouts? NO.

As far as Warfarin ,aka Coumidin, it’s a matter of being consistent.
I’m on Warfarin for a mechanical valve, love and eat lots of spinach.
But I’m consistent and the Warfarin dose is tailored to my eating habits.
Check my Pro-time monthly and it’s rarely out of range.
