What is Hemophilia?
Hemophilia is a rare bleeding disorder that is passed down at birth. Those diagnosed with this genetic disease have insufficient amounts of clotting factors which prolongs the length of a bleeding episode. In other words, their bodies take longer to heal a wound because of their blood’s inability to clot.
Those with mild hemophilia may experience prolonged bleeding after injuries or cuts. However, those with moderate to severe hemophilia may experience spontaneous bleeding, especially in the joints and muscles, which can cause crippling pain.
Hemophilia symptoms depend on the severity of the disease.
Those with mild hemophilia may experience longer than normal bleeding times after surgery or cuts.
People with moderate hemophilia occasionally experience bleeding after surgery or after an injury. Very rarely, they will experience spontaneous bleeding.
Someone with severe hemophilia often experiences internal bleeding, primarily in the joints and muscles, causing swelling, bruising and severe pain. Those with hemophilia may also experience frequent nosebleeds and may find blood in their urine.

Hemophilia A Other Treatment
Other Hemophilia Treatment
Upon being diagnosed with hemophilia, a patient should seek treatment right away. Those with mild hemophilia may only require on-demand treatment to inject missing clotting factors to stop active bleeding. Those with moderate to severe hemophilia usually receive prophylactic treatment, which involves regularly injecting the necessary clotting factor into their system. This preventative treatment can help minimize the occurrence of spontaneous bleeding.
Painkillers may also be necessary to reduce pain from symptoms associated with hemophilia. However, instead of medications like aspirin, patients should take pain medications that do not affect blood coagulation.
Of people diagnosed with hemophilia, 15% – 20% develop inhibitors, which is an immune response that prevents clotting factors from being productive. The body is unable to recognize the supplemental clotting factors and begins rejecting the treatment. When this occurs, patients need alternative treatment solutions, which can be very costly.
In recent years, treatment for hemophilia has become much more effective, allowing those with the disease to live normal, healthy, and productive lives. The key is to seek treatment and work with specialists early on to manage the symptoms and receive proper care.
