I read on a science page somewheres that von Willebrand Disease can cause bleeding ,mostly excess menstrual, but also in the joints, and bruising. I took note of it because ,I have leaky blood,and a kindly Angel (it's an evil world,so she must have been an Angel ,as many on this forum are) on this site told me to take Vitamin K- but get K2 if you can, it's known to be easy on the heart and stays in the blood longer ($6-8 at vitacost.com or anywhere you like).

Anyway,getting back to von Hillebrand Disease, I read on wikipedia that there are two forms of it .One inherited and the other Aquired By People With AutoImmune Antibodies; believe it or not Celiac Disease and Sjogren's Disease (I have both) were listed,but also remember that there are many AutoImmune Diseases and AutoImmune Antibodies Out There ,so also listed were Type-1 Diabetes, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and the like ,many of which Co-exist along with Celiac Disease. SO Celiacs COULD have aquired von Willebrand Disease through having AutoAntibodies.I don't know the URL address of where I found and read this,but there is a good explanation of it at wikipedia here. http://www.en.wikipedia .org/wiki/Von_Willebrand_disease

PP I love this forum,without it I'd be dead for sure,and no one would know what from.But I don't like the gluten-free store; they far too pushy-I eat regular foods meat and potatoes and go to whole Foods for gluten free flour.

Possibly an old wives tale, but I had once heard that some exposure to sunlight helps increase the absorption of Vitamin K.

Yeah well, Lynn, sittin' in the sun all day ain't practical or safe for most people.

Besides supplement is sold , so somebody must need it and my Celiac blood is runny;For your information some foods contain Vitamin K like Olive Oil,and Parsley,but it ain't practical to sit around eatin' Parsley and Olive Oil all day either.....but I have switched to all Olive oil for my cooking since I hear it is good for people.
