    You need to watch foods high in vitamin k unless you are suitable to switch to a newer doac instead of warfarin? Then you can eat all the spinnach you like

    That's why I was happy when my cardiologist put me on Xarelto (Rivaroxabin), there are no vit k problems. It's set and forget unlike warfarin as well.

    Unless you've had kidney stones?

    My T2 father was on warfarin for a long time, until eventually being switched over to a more modern drug. I kind of took the cynical approach and reckoned that the alternate drug must be much much more expensive than warfarin (and its 3 monthly blood tests)...... But he was never advised about foods to avoid when taking it.
