Why is blood clotting abnormal with vitamin k deficiency?

Clotting factors

Blood_type
Vitamin K is used to create several factors in the clotting cascade (the system that ends in a blood clot). If Vitamin K isn't there, then those factors are deficient, and blood won't clot as well. This is why newborns get a Vit K shot, to avoid something called "Hemorrhagic disease of the newborn."

Could you tell me how long it takes vitamin k to coagulate blood?

No known time

Vitamin_c
Vitamin K is important in the body for the formation of coagulation factors which will ultimately aid in the coagulation process. It's administration will help bleeding to stop if the person is deficient (and timing differs depending on the wound location, depth, etc) but this not always the case, as some bleedings are caused by other reasons.

Has it been looked into if an abundance of vitamin K in the blood causes Autism? I know the study was of a deficiency of the vitamin. Thank you.

How to say this...

Vitamin
I'm glad you asked the question here. In 2006, someone in the not-so-mainstream world of unproven " biomedical" cures for Autism, like treating yeast , thought that giving Vit K would be curative. Later, someone decided that Vitamin K shots given to newborns since I-don't- know-when were a cause of Autism , claiming they were dissolved in a base..or an acid..or both.. See www.quackwatch.com

Vitamin k or vitamin k2 are antidotes for vitamin d3 overdose, is that true?

No.

Vitamin_d
Stopping vitamin D is the main antidote. If symptoms occur because of high calcium levels in the blood a variety of treatments could reduce the levels.

An essential vitamin

Bone
Vitamin K is essential for our blood to form clots and stop us from bleeding. It may also be involved in bone health. Vitamin K is in kale, spinach, turnip greens, collards, swiss chard, mustard greens, parsley, romaine, green leaf lettuce, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. The bacteria in your intestinal tract make some Vitamin K also.

Dr. Benjamin Kalm answered:

What does vitamin k prevent?

Bleeding

Vitamin_k
Vitamin K is a cofactor in humans' ability to clot. When we don't have enough we have the potential to have severe bleeding. That is why brand new babies receive a dose of Vitamin K. Humans get most of their Vitamin K from bacteria in their intestines although it also comes from some foods.
