certain foods to avoid with pacemakers
My mother-in-law had a pacemaker put in about 6 months ago and told me last evening, that her doctor said that she should avoid green vegetables. I just thought that was very odd that shes suppose to avoid healthy food. Can someone answer my question?

Most likely she'll be taking some kind of blood thinner for awhile and leafy green veggies often contain a fair amount of vitamin K which is used to decrease bleeding problems. I've heard a person can eat some green veggies as long as they're consistent in the amount they eat each day. Then their blood work (INR) can be kept in the proper range.
