I was diagnosed a year ago with celiac disease and I am now having a problem with bruising, I have bruises all over my legs and body, does anyone else have this problem?

I was just diagnosed 3 weeks ago and before then i always had bruises all over my arms and legs. I have noticed that they have gone away for the most part, but it hasn't been that long. I was told that bruising is a side effect of celiac so I am hoping that it won't happen once my body heals. Don't worry, I am right there with you! ;)

I am now an adult who was diagnosed in December 2002 and I always remember having a problem with bruising. My mother who is not a diagnosed gluten sensitive person also has bruising. I am not sure what the exact problem is but sometimes my source is plain bumping into things. Especially at night, I tend to bump into the wall or the counter's edge. I am more concerned about how long it takes for them to heal.

I have the same problem with acne, at my age! And they said puberty was the only time I had to deal with pimples!!hahahah :blink:

I know I am still having zits and I am 46!!! and didn't have them when I was a teenager. It's good to hear I am not the only one with the bruising problems, thanks PJ

I had serious trouble with bruising as a child, but not so much lately. I think it might be related to a vitamin K deficiency. It's something to check into, at any rate!

I'm fairly sertain that excessive bruising can be a sign of some definciency or even other health issues. If this continues you need to get it checked out.
