    When I am stable, it is once a month. I'm due for a test, but I made a major diet change in the last month as well.

    yeah, when I went back to low carb when I got out of the hospital, I ended up getting off of the BP meds. Luckily I have not had a recurrence of the PE so they took me off the coumedin as well, fingers crossed on that one!

    I'm happy for you. Yours may have been a one time thing. I actually have some weird clotting disorder. Maybe with lchf I will be able to get the coumadin down to normal levels.

    I hope you can as well! Mine were very high when I was on it, so I am very happy not to have to keep it up. They never figured out why I got the PE, which is a little disturbing

    oh man, the circus and the red tent with very thin blood. Hoping they can lower the dose today, luckily the dosage seems to have a pretty quick response.

    Aren't you back yet?

    Yes. I uh...spent some time with my husband before he went to work.

    Okay. So my clotting level was perfect. Supposed to be between 2 and 3. I was 2.4 Nice to know I am still stable on this program. Sadly, no chance of lowering my dosage. Just for reference, most heart patients can reach the magic 2-4 range with under 5 mg of coumadin. I am on 14mg.

    I described my symptoms to the nurse. She felt that it was anemia caused by my period. The recommendation is to supplement iron from a few days to a week before my due date and throughout the "circus". Good thing I am pretty regular.

    I hope this is the answer and not that my body can't handle lchf or that my adrenal fatigue is flaring.

    Thanks for the concern everyone.

    Paula, I was like this when the Russian Circus was horribly wrong for me AKA pre ablation. I would feel like I would pass out but I never took iron. What I did was to eat more red meat and added liver a few days before the circus stared and during. It really helped. Maybe a good fatty roast or a steak would help too?
