Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is frequently thought to be brought on by inactivity, such as sitting for an extended period of time on an international flight. Although no diet has been shown to prevent DVT, paying attention to what you put into your body can reduce your risk.
Our home care services in Georgia can assist with the following:
- Water has the inherent ability to dilute blood and lessen the likelihood that platelets will clump together and form a clot. However, if you have heart failure and are on a diet to prevent DVT, you should talk to your doctor about how much water you should drink every day.
- As per a new logical review, eating food sources ready with virgin olive oil might diminish platelet action, bringing down the probability of fostering a hazardous blood clump in the leg. Olive oil’s phenols, which have been shown to reduce platelet aggregation, make it beneficial.
- It has been demonstrated that eating vegetables high in antioxidants and fiber improves cardiovascular health and reduces the risk of deep vein thrombosis. Vegetables are packed with nutrients, whether they are fresh, frozen, or canned. Consuming fresh fruit increases fiber intake, lowers the risk of deep vein thrombosis, and improves heart health, as well.
Lastly, our companionship services can assist with grocery shopping and meal prep, including leafy greens that contain a lot of Vitamin K, which makes blood clot better. They also contain micronutrients that improve heart health as a whole. Consult your doctor before consuming leafy greens if you are taking an anticoagulant.
