Symptom #2: Easy Bruising

When you cut yourself or damage your blood vessels in some other way, the fluids within are able to escape. This results in bleeding and losing too much blood can put your life in serious danger. Fortunately, though, most leaks are plugged quickly with the help of certain proteins that help the blood to coagulate.

These proteins are produced in the liver and, if the liver is not functioning properly, the production of the proteins may be reduced. This means that blood can take longer to coagulate, and this can mean you bruise more easily because blood is able to leak out. People with this condition obviously need to be careful as damage to the body can become more dangerous than usual.
