People who are on coumadin/warfarin do get those warnings but it's quite easy to forget and eat something especially at a holiday meal that can cause a problem.  I've been on coumadin now for about 18 months and like SoTS said - it's a flippin' nuisance!  BUT...blood clots in the lungs are MUCH WORSE!  I was raised on collards and turnips and I love cranberries....all of them are strictly VERBOTEN...

Once you are predisposed to an ailment ,with or without new meds,diet has to change in some instances ,and its awful when its stuff that isn't unhealthy under norm conditions.
After I had my kidney stone,I couldn't have soda,tea,cauliflower .
I live on tea ,ok ....and with the soda,its the carbonation,not the ingredients .
I do moderation ,because      I cannot live without my tea.
If I get a stone,I will cuss about it later .


Miss me?

Coumadin is made from rat poison anyways. So the sprouts killed him. Or the condition he originally needed the med for anyways. coumadin is highly monitored and people are instructed on what to and what not to add/delete from there diet. Even the things you should not eat can be eaten sparingly. Its not a toxic thing. Unless this guy was eating sprouts by the bushel (btw meat increases brain function better then veggie matter by volume) I cant see how they would have caused him harm.

There is often mistakes made with dosing and some people are easier to regulate then others. It is very similar to monitoring a diabetic but requires a laboratory to analyze the blood.

Coumadin is a life saving drug for many people around the world I felt it was the 2nd most dangerous drug I would administer on a regular basis after chemo agents.

Eating sprouts has always been a dangerous proposition:

good grief. All fruits and vegetables contain certain Vitamins and anti oxidants. We should just ban food.
Just because I like a fruit or vegetable I don't overdo it by eating so much that I get  problems. Now I know where all the brussel sprouts disappeared to.
There are many medications that react to certain fruits. One should check with their doctor or check out the FDA website for drug/food interactions.
It is common sense and with some medications there are very serious side effects to begin with. You have to take control of your own health by being informed and aware.

Hi Simbi!

I wish I knew where to start with natural remedies over here in the UK! I'm on a very high dose of warfarin 40 mgs a day (usually its 3mg a day) so every few months I have to switch to heparin injections as my liver has taken a pounding as I also have haematomachrosis which is another blood complication (too much iron in blood) so I have to have blood letting to get rid of the iron if it gets to high.

Brilliant stuff - Warfarin - it certainly keeps the rat population down in my barns!

'Christmas' sprouts in our humble abode come with roast onions, chopped chestnuts and chopped bacon pieces. Yummy!

I've just remembered Old Bert Timpkins from the next village - it was potatoes that killed him. A hundredweight sack of King Edwards fell off the delivery lorry on to the back of his neck two Christmasses ago!

no sprouts do not need a health warning. the rest of us don't have a problem eating them,s ot herefore it's the man's doctor who needed to l et him know that it could affect his medication if he ate them
why do we all have to be included in everyone's issues and disabilities and illnesses?
