What is thin blood?
What does the term 'thing blood' mean and how do you know your blood is thin? Like with thick blood, it means your blood clots easily but you have no real way of telling (e.g. symptoms of it) that you have thick blood. So can you have 'thin blood symptoms' at all?

I've got thin blood & my blood finds it hard to clot and I had to undergo an operation. I was bleeding to death and had to have blood transfusions. I was losing that much blood, I needed to have 6 & a half litres of blood transfused into me, I was extremely lucky i'm here to tell the story, extremely lucky. That's alot of blood.

One of the symptoms of " thin blood" I had ,was large , black bruises . I had a very low platelet count.

You are correct, thinning of the blood means that it doesn't clot easily. Some symptoms you get if your blood is too thin are bruising easily, gums bleeding and sometimes if you have a cut, it takes longer to stop bleeding. When you have a low level of any part of the blood make-up which helps with clotting, you can be at risk of bleeding (obviously dependent on how low). In some situations it is advisable to keep blood thin with drugs such as aspirin and warfarin to prevent clots.

Thin Blood is a traditional expression for a coward.Thick blood happens in family feuds, and sometimes it can mean a stubborn Pit Bull. He'll grab a stick and not let go, hang the stick in the tree, and Pit Bull still hangs on.. You leave Pit Bull ... Pit Bull Hang On... Hour 2 hours....Pit Bull keeps hanging.....When I heard it I did not believe it, but , when I realized I have a karate ka bone structure, I found out that a lion will break his teeth on parts of my skull. Not that I would go for such a stunt... Somehow I have the Idea the Pit Bull would make my Thick Bood run Thin.

In the scientific language, there is nothing like thin or thick blood. This is a wrong perception. The viscosity of blood remains the same. The changes occuring in the blood r due to the changes in the # of one particular kind of cell, the change in the proportion of different cells, the ratio of haemoglobin etc etc.

You're right about "thick blood" clotting easily so "thin blood" is the opposite - your blood doesn't clot easily. If your blood is too "thick" a clot can form in your vein or arteries preventing blood flow to part of your body which is obviously very dangerous. However if your blood is too "thin" and you cut yourself, it'll take longer to form a clot and you'll lose more blood. So basically you need to be somewhere in between. I guess the only symptom of "thin blood" would be if you get a small cut and it won't stop bleeding for ages. If this is the case you should get in touch with your doctor.
