Hemophilia is a group of genetic disorders that cause abnormal bleeding. These bleedings happen when a part of the blood called plasma has too little protein to clot the blood. Symptoms of hemophilia range from increased bleeding after trauma, injury, or surgery, to sudden bleeding for no apparent reason. In general, hemophilia is divided into two types: hemophilia A (or classic hemophilia), which is more common and affects about 80% of people with hemophilia. Hemophilia B (or Christmas disease), which is less common and affects about 20% of cases. It causes hemophilia.
Hemophilia A occurs when a type of protein called factor 8 (effective in blood clotting) is very low in the blood plasma. The greater the deficiency of this protein, the more severe the symptoms will be. Mild hemophilia: the level of factor 8 in this type is 5 to 40% of the normal level. Moderate hemophilia: the level of factor 8 in this type is 1 to 5% of the normal level. Severe hemophilia: the amount of factor 8 in this type is less than 1%. Many people with hemophilia A experience moderate to severe symptoms.
Hemophilia B is caused by an excessive deficiency of a type of protein called Factor 9 (effective in blood clotting) in the blood plasma. Like type A, hemophilia B can be mild, moderate, or severe. The greater the deficiency of factor 9, the more severe the symptoms will be.
5 recommendations for hemophilia patients
Diagnosis of hemophilia If there is no family history of hemophilia, the baby will not be tested for this disease. However, if there is a family history, doctors can perform special tests using cord blood to diagnose hemophilia. In fact, if the parents are willing, these tests can even be done before the baby is born. In cases of moderate or severe hemophilia, doctors and nurses usually do not see any signs of the disease at the time of the baby’s birth or even some time after. Symptoms of hemophilia in children can include: Heavy bleeding in male infants after circumcision. Severe bruising or unusual bleeding during teething. Swelling and bruising of joints or muscles during learning how to walk. Falling too much. In cases of mild hemophilia, it is possible that no significant symptoms will be observed before visiting a dentist. People with mild hemophilia experience heavy bleeding when dental treatment or restorative procedures begin. It is even possible that these people will not experience abnormal bleeding until after an injury, accident or surgery.
