Warfarin and Vitamin K
By Jake Bryan C. on 06. January 2017 for Vitamin K (Quinone) and Vitamin E (Tocopherols)

From what I understand, we advise patients taking Coumdain to AVOID eating vitamin K rich foods because it will counteract the effect of the drug.

Not only will you learn about Nutrition; you could potentially lose weight!
By Christopher D. on 30. October 2016 for Nutrition

In this Nutrition course, Dr. Cornwall elaborates some basic nutritional principles that are essential for any student of Human physiology to understand. The way she presents the information is in much greater detail than what I was exposed to in the small Nutrition course held in Medical school. I particularly liked learning about the Mifflin-St. Jeor Formula for calculating Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR); it literally changed the way I look at food!
