    Feel a bit silly asking this question, but has anyone noticed that they bruise really easily since starting cd?

    Have read stuff on the internet that you bruise more when following a low carb diet?

    just wondering if anyone else has had this?

    I was going to post about this a while ago. I think I'm bruising more easily but had wondered if I was imagining it.

    This is really freaky because I ended up at the emergency doctors because I had the most horrendous bruising on my leg and thought it may have been a blood clot.

    Apparently it was in the wrong place for a blood clot.

    I had several major bruises though so am quite relieved actually to see that.

    It is most probably a lack of vitamin K. There is some in the diet but a few people require more.

    You can get tablets from the chemist call sinkavit sp? these will help if you are really concerned go and see your GP.

    I have come across this before and the advice above was given by the then medical officer.
