I know lots of you that pass alot of blood or at least some blood are you on vitamin K ? Was reading about it this morning and wandered if you were on it or if it helped with bleeding issues as it helps with blood issues in the body. I had a bit of a nose bleed last week and reached for my vitamins as there are days I forget to take them. lol gail

I'm guessing I've had this problem, especially with taking Questran on top of things (I guess it can suck up your Vit K). I take a multi-vit that has it in there. But for me the bleed was NSAIDS.

Other then the stomach problem you had?Just was wandering how important a issue it is for some people here the vitamin K and what difference it is making to those that have visible blood lost in there stools and if they are aware of how it effects there bodies.

Most of us have a adequate supply of Vitamin K. We get it from some source, but I can't remember where we get it. But my healthy hubby had a tooth pulled recently and it wouldn't stop bleeding and the dentist had him get a vit k shot and that helped to stop the bleeding. Its not a vitamin to take all the time, but we can require boosters is what I have heard. JMHO

gail, the heparin is for my central line. to keep it clear. so each day i have to flush each side with it. many folks use whats called 10 unit heparin flush. i require 100 unit. whic is basically the amount per ML of fluid.. i just dont absorb from food anymore.
