Should I be concerned if my daughter was recently diagnosed with biotinidase deficiency. need help with reading lab report(s).?

VERY concerned

If you do not follow instructions exactly, your daughter will end up severely disabled. If you comply, she should have a good life. This is why we test for it. And please forgive my frankness -- if the folks who gave you the reports did not explain them clearly, go right back and demand that they do so. Everything depends on your being accurately informed and pro-active.

Can vitamin b deficiency cause bruising?

Not really

Bruise
vitamin B has multiple classes from 1 to 12 . They are not involved in the clotting or coagulation path way or platelet function . However, there are scenarios in which vitamin B classes indirectly play certain role . For example B12 is function as coenzyme in conversion of homocystine to methylmalonic acid . Accumulation of homocystine is associated with abnormal coagulation .

I have some blue-ish blotches on my legs. Not bruises. Have had them before i can remember. Blue veins also show. I have iron deficiency. Causes?

Many possible causes

Open-uri20140211-19125-1oyc2nq
Bluish blotches are difficult to diagnose without examination. They could represent blue nevi (moles) if they have the description of moles. However, blue blotches in the legs are often related to varicose veins and are due to long periods of standing. They can be painful too. There are other causes as well. Iron deficiency is unlikely to be related.You need to see a doctor for examination.
