At the American College of Cardiology meeting last week, I discovered a neat project being tackled by Alere, the sponsor of PTINR.com, which is a web site we highly recommend for those taking Coumadin or warfarin.
If you take warfarin or Coumadin, you know that you have to keep your vitamin K intake consistent, but food labels don’t provide the information you need. Alere is working with the FDA to get vitamin K included on US food labels, and they could use your help with this important project.
If you would find it useful to have food and beverage labels list the amount of vitamin K contained, please vote Yes here to ask the FDA to add this to food labels.
After doing so, please feel free to add additional comments here on this blog post, and we’ll pass them along to be shared with the FDA. Thanks.
