Thin blood

Hello: I have very thin blood and bruise very easily, it's a blood disorder called ITP. I noticed after eating a snack size seaweed packet I got more bruises than normal. Does seaweed thin your blood?

Thank you..

I was going online to find the same thing. I think I have a thyroid problem, and was eating seaweed to feel better (I think it's hypo, all my female relatives have it). After about 2 or 3 weeks of eating about a tbsp. of seaweed on and off (not every day), I noticed that cuts I had would bleed a lot more than usual, so I'm wondering if seaweed can inhibit clotting as well. It sure seems the case. I have reduced the dosage to about a tsp every day and so far I've got more energy.
