Hi Heid

No, Kalium (or potassium) is not the same as Vit K

Hi, my dad is now using warfarin, they found blod clots in the left lung after several surgeries during the last 6 weeks. He was very healthy and fit except for prostate issues.
To assist in recovery a friend recommended Lifegain as it helped her recover from cancer therapy. We''re concerned because the list of foods he''s not allowed is quite long, and we''d like to know if there''s anything in Lifegain that will interfere with warfarin?

Thanx
