Your warfarin dose should be adjusted according to your diet.

The point you should pay attention to in your eating habits is that you do not consume foods that contain vitamin K or that interact with warfarin excessively. As long as you continue your daily adequate and balanced diet, you can prevent the foods you consume from affecting your warfarin dose. Your Warfarin dose should be adjusted according to your diet, not vice versa.

    The example about the mattress sizing page you mentioned in the last WBF can be a perfect example of new keywords and content, and broadening the funnel as well. I can only imagine the sale numbers if that was the site of a mattress selling company.
