I have a protein c deficiency and currently take 20mg/day of warfarin to stay between 2.0/3.0. Have been advised to avoid most vitamin k foods And to eat a balanced diet. How do I accomplish this?

My INR must be between 3 and 3.5, low 2---I get clots---11 total so far, 5 arterial, 6 DVT-----Vitamin E is a natural blood thinner, if you do have to eat foods with Vitamin K, combat with Vitamin E.....I went for 4 yrs. between clots, when I quit my Vitamin E strict diet, thinking after 4 years, I was healed from clots..When I changed my diet --BANG--another DVT.....back on Vitamin E diet, but you get tired of eating the same old thing---and change--LOOK OUT, 3 yrs. later, Major arterial clots, presently in hospital again, this time, I have been here now 17 days, and they said I might get out tomorrow, or the next day----last 1.5 yrs. hospitalized 5 times----5 arterials , and 2 more DVT----It sucks yes, but no PE's yet--all clots in legs--9 in left, 2 in right to date.

It is almost if not impossible to eat a well balanced meal and avoid any and all vitamin K. Ask your clinician for a printout of the Vitamin K values for the common foods and then eat as few as possible of those foods. My clinician gave me a 6 pages of foods and their Vitamin K values. She gave me a target range of vitamin K for a day. I do my best to stay within this range and maintain a therapeutic INR. There have only been a couple of times that I have eaten so much vitamin K foods that it affected my INR. Good luck.
