Dermatology/Frequent Bruises on Back of Hands


Dug wrote at 2013-06-22 03:42:13
I am 66 and male, at or around the age of 52 I noticed easy bruising on the back of my hands. Even small trauma would cause big bruises that lasted for many days . This continued until age 64 when my PCP did a routine check of my Vit D (borderline low) and recommended 2,000 IU Vit D per day.  As time went along I noticed the bruising became much less and faded more quickly.  I didn't make a connection with Vit D until I missed doses and it fully returned.  I have also noticed that the bruising returned when daily aspirin was added to the D.
