Clinical Study Title:
Low-dose oral vitamin K reliably reverses over-anticoagulation due to warfarin.
|Plain English Summary:|
|The use of warfarin can have many adverse reactions including abnormalities with their international normalized ratio. The purpose of this study was to examine the use of a vitamin K supplement to help adjust the international normalized ratio for patients taking warfarin. All of the participants who received the vitamin K supplement had reduced levels of international normalized ratio beginning almost right after treatment. This suggests that the use of vitamin K is a safe, effective, inexpensive way to help to correct the side effects of warfarin by reducing raised levels of international normalized ratio.|
