What causes easy bruising?

My mother easily bruises when bumped. BY bumped like bump into a cabinet or trimming trees and raking arm against bark. This is a recent development in the last year. She does have type 2 diabetes, but it might be caused by Bilberry which she takes for Dupytenis disease or fish oil. They are both blood thinners.

Anything else that might cause easy bruising that are slow to heal?

Your green leafy veggies like kale, collard greens, spinach, and also brussel sprouts and broccoli to a certain extent. I think K1s primary effect would be to reduce the size of the bruising by improving clotting response. Obviously if you hit your body hard enough it WILL bruise, but how much should be determined by your clotting response. MY guess is recovery time for the bruise would be the same but it would be a smaller less noticable area.

LOL! I'm 27 and never seen my father do anything physically violent. I have seen her bruise her arm while out gardening. She added the bilbery and fishoil this year.

Vitamin K1 deficiency is a possibility.
