I bruise very easily - am I lacking a vitamin?

A lack of Vitamin K can cause bruising.

Potassium or Iron get test for anemia. If you have anemia you may also feel very worn down tired and be a little paler than usual. If you are difficent in Potassium your muscles might be achy.

could be, Potassium.. or, you could be anemic.

try eating foods high in Potassium. contrary to what people say, bananas are NOT the highest in Potassium..

Master Bates
lots of people bruise very easily, their is something in pears that reduces bruising. so eat more pears.

I'm not sure if its a vitamin deficiency or not but...you could be a hemophiliac

Ursula S
BH answered most of it, but I want to add that Vitamin K deficiency can also be caused by celiac disease, because it causes malabsorption of essential nutrients.

Meaning that you could potentially be deficient in quite a few nutrients, including Vitamin K, iron, vitamin C and many others.

that coul be very much so
however other things cause this always
check with a doctor

lastworkerbee has it correct. Vitamin K is essential for the synthesis of clotting factors. It can be found in the cruciferous vegetables (the Cabbage/broccoli family) and in dark green leafy vegetables. Babies, infants and children are routinely screened for hemophilia and other disorders, so it's unlikely that you have that. But a simple blood count to see what you platelet count is can help reassure you.

One final point, and I don't want to alarm you, but certain medications can cause your blood to not clot as rapidly. Scurvy, or Vitamin C deficiency, can cause easy bruisability. Nowadays, we have a condition called "bachelor's scurvy" - because they eat McDonald's and DON'T eat their fruits and vegetables. A simple Vitamin C or Multivitamin tablet will cure that. And finally, there's Leukemia, which can cause a deficiency of platelets and cause easy bruisability or bleeding as a result. Again, a simple blood count can check for that and reassure you, if it's normal.

Potassium has nothing to do with easy bruisability.
