Commented on My Name is Veronica, Co-Founder of INR Tracker, and I have a blood clotting disorder. Ask me anything. over 3 years ago

Hi Pavan, I'm replying to a very old post but I know you're one of the creators of this site. I'm not in the US and I wanted to ask if it would be possible to include metric measurements in the diet tracker? I've only just started using it, but I was stymied straightaway because I have no idea how many fluid ounces of coffee I drink :) If it's not possible I understand, but it would definitely make the site more user friendly for those of us outside the US. Thanks so much for establishing the site!


Commented on how much vitamin K intake on warfarin 5mg/day over 2 years ago

Hi there, I have a mechanical heart valve and have been on warfarin for 16 years - and will be for life. In my experience, you don't need to measure out every mcg of Vitamin K you have, you just need to have a good idea of how much you're having - and that takes time to learn, like any new diet. When I started taking warfarin, they said stick to 1/2 a cup of greens a day. But, if you want to have more than that, just make sure (as someone else said earlier) that you're consistent with how much you have. As long as you're within your therapeutic range, the amount of warfarin can be adjusted to account for your lifestyle - rather than the other way round. Hope that helps :)
