Really there are no actual food restrictions when taking Lovenox. Now if you are taking supplements such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, garlic, ginger, ginkgo or ginseng, those are discouraged. Or are allergic to pork or benzyl alcohol, notify your physician.
There are no foods that you have to avoid like you would have to on Warfarin. I am hoping that things are better now. I am not sure why you would still be throwing clot once you started the Lovenox. I hope your doc figured something out. I am assuming that you must be a large person to be given the 150mg injection. Did your doc discuss going to either 100mg twice a day or 150mg twice a day since you were throwing the clots?
i am very concerned for you. But remember there is always a rainbow after the storm.
If I was in your place I would call :
Call the LOVENOX® Patient Hotline
M–F 8 a.m.–8 p.m. ET
For all your questions.
About the blood clots. Does your doctor know what is happening?
I found these side effects and it addresses your blood clots.

As for the diet, you really need to eat different colored vegetables. yellow, red and green. Steak at least 3 times a week to get that iron back in you. As your Nurse about anything special you need. I want you well !!! I know what is like to live feeling like crap and not know what to do.
I wish you healed and have great health.
