disseminated intravascular coagulation, and reduction of von Willebrand factor synthesis in hypothyroidism. In lymphoproliferative disorders, plasma-cell dyscrasias, and autoimmune diseases, circulating anti–von Willebrand factor antibodies can cause qualitative or quantitative deficiencies, and tumor cells can adsorb von Willebrand factor (e.g., by expressing glycoprotein Ib), depleting its circulating levels.

VonWillebrands Disease       	    What is von Willebrand Disease?    Von Willebrand Disease is a bleeding disorder caused by a defect or deficiency of a blood clotting protein, called von Willebrand Factor. The disease is estimated to occur in 1% to 2% of the population. The disease was first described by Erik von Willebrand, a Finnish physician who reported a new type of bleeding disorder among island people in Sweden and Finland.    Von Willebrand Factor is a protein critical to the…

Where does von Willebrand Factor come from? Von Willebrand Factor is a huge multimeric protein that is made by megakaryocytes and endothelial cells. It functions in both the initial, platelet-plug phase of hemostasis (in which it glues the platelets to the endothelium), and in the second, fibrin-forming phase of hemostasis (in which it serves as a carrier molecule for factor VIII that keeps factor VIII from being prematurely degraded).

"It is important that all people with von Willebrand disease (VWD) engage in regular exercise to keep their muscles and joints strong and their health good. Being in good physical condition can actually reduce the number of bleeding episodes a person has, especially in Type 3 VWD. Another benefit of regular exercise is the raising of the von Willebrand factor levels." VWD can be genetic or acquired (http://www.webmd.com/cancer/tc/acquired-von-willebrands-disease-topic-overview).
