13. Easy bruising and bleeding
Other vital proteins produced by the liver include clotting factors required for healing and hemostasis (the process of blood clotting to stop bleeding). Thus, clotting factors in patients with liver disease are reduced in the blood, and bleeding episodes are hardly controlled. Patients start experiencing easy bruising and constant bleeding that is difficult to control.
Some diseases also have liver involvement with signs and symptoms of bleeding, and others cause bleeding episodes because platelets are low, as in the case of viral dengue. Thus, easy bruising and bleeding should be seen as an additional symptom you should evaluate with others to reach a conclusion.
