Mild or type 1 VWD runs in my family. Mom, both sisters and myself had/have varying symptoms. I have problems with bruising a lot no matter how much vitamin c I take, other issues, too.
I have a question for my fellow VWD-ers: Are there any foods or nutritional supplements that you know of that make the bleeding and bruising worse? What I have experienced is that coffee, beets and vitamin k make bruising worse. Anybody else?
