bruising
My daughter is thirty, very athletic but bruises suddenly...like last evening she did her exercises and there were two bruises on her knees. The other day she had one on her arm. She does like her drink and consumes about six ounces of alcohol a day but there are no other overt symptoms. The bruises are not a daily occurrence. She works hard, plays hard, parties and is very popular. I am only concerned about her liver and paltelets...do you reocmmend a blood test and,if so, for what/ Thanks

Hello,
Easy and unexplained bruising should always be investigated. Firstly the liver causes should always be investigated. Anemia and deficiency of vitamins C, K, B12, or folic acid are the common causes of easy bruisability. Try taking iron tablets and multivitamins for some days and see if the symptoms improve.

If the symptoms do not improve, get yourself evaluated by a physician and look out for SLE, bone marrow disorders, liver diseases or leukemias. Anti-clotting (anti-coagulants) medication also can cause increased bruising.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
