Dear Alet
I am not sure what you are asking? Urokinase and Streptokinase are drugs that are usually prescribed to prevent clotting and/or to dissolve blood clots. You don't mention why these drugs have been prescribed? If you suffer from deep vein thrombosis or heart problems then it is essential that you consult a clinical dietitian to help you with a diet to counteract atherosclerosis. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will have to work out a diet for you that takes your specific problem and medications into account. For example, if you suffer from heart disease then you would require a low-fat, high-fibre diet that contains plenty of fresh, green vegetables to increase your intake of vitamin K2.
I hope this helps.
Best regards
