Welcome

Haemophilia is a inherited and lifelong blood disorder where an essential blood clotting factor is either party or completely missing. It occurs in all racial groups and affects about 1 in 10,000 of the male population.

what is haemophilia
What is Haemophilia?

Haemophilia is passed from parent to child it cannot be caught.

Men with haemophilia pass the gene that has messages for haemophilia on to their daughters,but not their sons

These daughters blood usually clots normally though they carry the gene for Haemophilia in their blood they are called “carriers”

When these daughters have babies, they may pass

haemophilia on to some of their children. Affected

girls will be carriers of the haemophilia gene, like

them. Affected boys will have haemophilia.

is all haemophilia the same
Is All Haemophilia The Same?

no

If a person has a small amount of factor VIII or

factor IX, his haemophilia is moderate. He will

most likely bleed less often than a person with

severe haemophilia, and usually following an

accident.

If a person’s factor VIII or factor IX level is just a

bit higher than in moderate haemophilia, but still

below the level needed for a good clot, his

haemophilia is mild. Unusual bleeding will only

happen when people like this have a tooth taken out

or when they have an operation or a big accident.

All people with haemophilia must see a

haemophilia healthcare worker if they need to have

a tooth taken out or have an operation, or

if they have a big accident.

will i always have haemophilia
Will I Always Have Haemophilia?

Yes.

A person with haemophilia is born with it and has it all his life.

The amount of factor VIII or IX in his blood usually stays the same throughout his life.

Once a child is an adult, he will usually bleed less often.

how is my haemophilia treated
How Is My Haemophilia Treated?

Missing clotting factor can be put into the blood

through a needle in the person’s vein.

This added clotting factor only lasts for a short time.

If a person has treatment during the morning, it may

not be working any more by the evening.
