A vitamin K deficiency can be caused by a number of different things. Specifically, chronic diseases, like liver disease, can cause the vitamin not to be absorbed properly. Also, some medications like Aspirin can cause a vitamin K deficiency.

Vitamin K affects blood clotting times. Too much Vitamin K can cause blood clotting as in DVT or deep vein thrombosis. If a person consumes excessive amounts of Vitamin K they may experience pulmonary emboli or blood clots in the lungs. Both DVTs and pulmonary emboli can be fatal if not treated quickly.

Vitamin K does not cause any disease. It is a fat soluble vitamin. It can be stored in your body in large quantity. No such disease is ever described in the medical books.
