Question lovenox mama's

ok question..

for those of you on lovenox what are you on it for?

secondly, were you told you can't have fruit juice, and fast acting sugars as well (candy, and everything else good) because it makes platelets more sticky?


I just bought 6 boxes of choxie at 90% off...and I can't eat them....four letter curses...

Re: lovenox mama's

I've never been on it. Though I do know that grapefruit juice is a no-no, I hadn't heard about no sweets period. Sorry mama. I craved sweets (still do) when I was pregnant.

hmmm...no restrictions were mentioned to me, but I should ask (I'm off the injections until my subchorionic hematoma resolves itself) - my drs don't seem to know much about my disorder (PAI-1) at all - so I doubt that they are all that familiar with the drug!

Re: lovenox mama's

I took it 5 years ago for MTHFR. They did not give me any food restrictions at all, and as a matter of fact I pretty much ate nothing but junk my last trimester since I had a huge chocolate and turnover craving. I later discovered that the flavins in chocolate help thin the blood and lower blood pressure. I'm not sure it's a coincidence that I crave chocolate when I'm preg. Anyway, the sugar didn't make any difference IME, but that was 5 years ago. I'm sure there is more research out there on it.

Who told you no sugars? Your peri or a nurse?

Aspartame is bad no matter when you ingest it (Google "aspartame health" - scary stuff!)

Re: lovenox mama's

I was on Lovenox all the way through my last pregnancy for Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, and my only restriction food wise was to stay away from high amounts of vitamin K.
