I understand that eating green vegetables are dangerous to eat while you are on cumindin is this correct and what is safe
No. You do not have to avoid any foods while on Coumadin. However, foods that contain Vitamin K can reduce the effectiveness of your coumadin. Vitamin K is an "antidote" to coumadin. Green leafy vegetables can be high in Vitamin K. You don't have to avoid these foods but you do need to consume a consistent amount. It is good to research which foods are high in vitamin K and be sure if they are foods you like to eat that you eat similar amounts of Vitamin K containing foods so that your coumadin can be adjusted around that consumption. What is dangerous is when you suddenly decide to have a large amount of Vitamin K containing food or if you have been eating Vitamin K containing foods and suddenly stop eating them. this can wreak havoc on your INR levels because it changes the way the coumadin effects the body.
