The price of magic blood thinning

Some drugs work like magic – but magic always comes with a price! In the latest drug-mugging, scientists are slowly discovering how anti-clotting medications help you lose your mind a little at a time. Warfarin may actually be your stand-by ticket to Alzheimer’s. Warfarin and similar rat-poison drugs work by depleting your natural vitamin K. But here’s where the problems only begin. Vitamin K is crucial for maintaining sphingomyelin that helps you remember things (dementia anyone?). Spingomyelin is also found in red blood cells (anemia anyone?) and is critical for retinal health (blindness anyone?). Did you know that a lot of victims… er, patients… are on warfarin because they have intracellular deficiencies in copper? Oh, the doctor might actually check your plasma levels for copper but they never check inside the cells where copper does its job. So, you are checked for plasma copper levels. You have plenty but your blood clots too easily, you are at risk for stroke and maybe are anemic. BLAMMO! Here comes the magic prescription pad along with Coumadin or Jantoven. Meanwhile the cause of your symptoms are escaping untreated and you are now logging more dangerous side effects than drug company package inserts have room for. Find the cause and fix it.

High price to pay for magic...
