Hi, I also had a mitral valve replacement in 2017,also have atrial fib … my INR has to be between 2.5 and 3.5 but mines fluctuates sometimes, my last reading was 1.1 so my dosage was increased to 6mg for 5dys and 8mg for the other 2days.I just got back from vacationing in the Islands so maybe I went food crazy a little or stressed from this coronavirus pandemic because I live in NY, Just keep eating what you normally do with a little adjustment to the 'greens' portion wise.. remember that you can have more fresh greens than steam on your plate
