Juices and eating well Empty

Hi all, i am on Warfarin due to two blood clots, but i am now getting Ulcers on both my legs, as my skin is thining and the slightest knock results in another Ulcer.

See my doctor today about coming off Warferin, he said i had three choices, come off and take a chance on another clot,stay on or see a consultant about a new drug which does the same as warfarin but without side effects and you can eat what you like.

The reason why i thought of coming off was my son had done a lot of research into juicing fruit and veg, and said there were a lot of fruits that thin the blood, also veg, he wants me to give it a try, its a big step to take, i really only stayed on Warfarin because i had done long haul holidays.

Any help or ideas.

Chris UK.

Hi Chris,
hope we were meeting because of better situations, but you are here, welcome to LADVT.
Usually, after two clot you are a lifer, well that's how it is in Canada & the USA. Odd.
Concerning your three choices, after my first clot I was in that same predicament, to stay on anticoags and be safe, stop anticoags and see what happens, actually I had two, I had been on one of the new drugs (on the trial) and so I opted for the second choice, stop all anticoags.
Two years later, another clot in my other leg, now I'm a lifer on anticoags and I'm on Pradax. Been taking it since 2011 and so far that has been the cat's meow. Smile
-No INR testing
-No dietary restrictions
-Daily, fix, oral dosage (2X 150mg)
-and I have no side effects to it.(I had Baaaaad side effects with warfarin)

About stopping and juicing, have you talked about it with your Dr.?
I think that unless your son is a scientist and knows exactly the content and amount of each fruit and/or veggy, I (personally) would not go that way, but that is me... and I am no specialist, just another DVT survivor.
