Can Vitamin D Deficiency cause Petechiae in an adult?
Can Vitamin D Deficiency cause Petechiae in adults? I have low levels of Vitamin D and noticed I am covered in tiny red dots. Is there a correlation or should I be seeking additional advice?
No, I have never heard of petechiae from vitamin d deficiency. It is more likely a result of low platelets as a more serious issue, but if that it OK and your doctor can't figure it out (AND you are NOT on blood thinners or aspirin), then it could be a vitamin K deficiency.
