What is Hemophilia?

Haemophilia is an inherited disease in which the blood does not have the ability to clot properly. Haemophiliacs bleed easily from any wound on their body. Some people do not show signs of the disease while in childhood but increases in severity later in life.

 Types of Haemophilia

According to the health experts, haemophilia has two major types:  Haemophilia A and Haemophilia B. Haemophilia A is caused by a deficiency of factor VIII and Haemophilia B is due to the deficiency of IX factor. In most of the cases, both types of haemophilia look the same. Haemophiliacs will suffer internal or external bleeding right after the surgery or any injury.

Females are more prone to the disease as compared to males; studies show that 25,000 more women are inheritably affected by the disease. Females are the carriers of haemophilia B while males are the carriers of haemophilia A.

Haemophilia Treatment

It is very difficult to treat haemophilia as it is an inherited genetic disease, but precautions can reduce the affects. It is extremely important to care for wounds immediately and seek medical help even for superficial injuries. The deficient factors can be replaced by finding the deficient factors in blood serum from donors but some haemophiliacs can develop antibodies and, when that happens, a factor VIII from a non-human source can be tried.
