Answer

Diet manipulations have no direct effect on antithrombin activity. If warfarin is used for thromboprophylaxis, then standard warfarin diet instructions should be used.

Obesity is an independent risk factor for thrombosis. Diet manipulation to encourage a healthy lifestyle should be undertaken in children with a congenital procoagulant disorder to avoid additional risks later in life.
