Hi,

my father (84) is currently taking warfarin plus Vitamin D (10000 IU). Since the moment it was put on warfarin he stopped the supplementation of vitamin K (LEF super k2).

Now,  I've reead that vitamin D boosts calcium absorption from the intestines and its re-absorption from the kidneys,  enhancing levels of available calcium. In additon, it upregulates the expression of Gla-proteins, whose activation depends on vitamin K.  This points to an increased demand of vitamin K from  Vitamin D.

What worries me is that Vitamin K protection of soft tissues from calcification is removed on warfarin (since both are not compatible). And warfarin produces calcification of the soft tissues.  Thus combining warfarin with vitamin D might be a disaster  recipe for aterosclerosis due to their cummulative effect on calcium on soft tissues.

So,  my question is whether warfarin+Vitamin D is a dangerous combo?.

Thanks. Santiago
