I thought this site would do this, and it apparently doesn't. Very disappointed. My INR which has been rock stable for years has suddenly started doing flip flops and I can't figure out why so I want to track my foods. One top of that I was forced to change hematologists due to an insurance change. New clinic is in a VERY INCONVENIENT LOCATION; waste a lot of time getting there for weekly testing. I tried one of the home use monitors and never could get enough blood out of my finger to get it on the slide, so that's not an option. I just love wasting time.

I am new to this site. I agree that the Vitamin K daily total does not seem to be available. Did you find how to get the total?

I have been using a coaguchek XS for 10 years, check my blood twice a week, what they don't tell you about getting enough blood to satisfy the strip, is you have to start "milking" the assigned fingers for 10 - 20 seconds before you stick, also some fingers and locations are way better than other spots, I have 2, I use each week that never fail.
I am in range 100 percent of the time that way, no doctor involved, it is easy to manage dosages once you get used to it,(just like anything else). hope this helps.

Yep the benefits of self testing and self management if you are able make warfarin management a breeze, much better than being (mis)managed by a “professional”
