    Hello.

    I did a Yahoo search of the phrase "insulin and coumadin" and got several hits.

    Here is a link to one article that states that there is no interaction between the two drugs: http://www.drugs.com/drug-interactions/coumadin-with-insulin-2311-1529-1340-0.html

    I have been on coumadin for 18 years. You really need to discuss this type of question with your doctor and/or pharmacist. Many drugs and foods do interact with comadin and alter its efficacy.

    astromer, you're not actually suggesting that dandelion root will treat type 1 are you? It would be dangerous to suggest that.
