Accepting Haemophilia Helps Fight Disease

Preventive measures like vaccination for Hepatitis A and B, avoiding tablets like aspirin and ibuprofen, blood thinners like heparin and warfarin and good dental hygiene is very important to ensure stable quality of life, state experts for World Haemophilia Day that falls on April 17.

Haemophilia is a bleeding disorder wherein the body does not have enough blood clotting proteins. It is a genetic disorder that runs in the family and is often identified during childhood, within nine months to two years.

Dr S.V.S.S. Prasad, senior consultant hematologist and oncologist at Apollo Hospitals. said, “Once the disease is identified, it is very important for the family members to educate the child to avoid injuries and be very careful. A lot of them suffer from dental problems like bleeding gums and injuries to the teeth, which demand that they must practice good dental hygiene”.

It is very important for haemophiliac patients to let their friends, teachers and also colleagues know that they suffer from this problem. Experts insist that talking and accepting the disease helps to deal with it better.
