Bruise easily
I am 34 year old female. For the last year I have a very bad habit of drinking 3 - 6 glasses of wine daily, weekends we end up indulging more. Lately I seem to bruise for no reason or for the slightest bump. Could it be that my liver is giving in or do I have some other condition?

Dear Tamsy,
Yes it could be a sign of liver problems. You'll have to go for a liverfunction test, a full blood count and coagulation factor test. A GP will be able to do this for you.
