It’s crucial for people with hemophilia and their loved ones to be informed of strategies to prevent accidents and injuries since the bleeding disorder of hemophilia can cause excessive bleeding after an injury. 

What is Hemophilia?

Haemophilia is a condition in which the body is unable to produce adequate clotting factors, which are proteins that aid in the formation of blood clots. Your blood contains proteins known as clotting factors. They combine with your platelets to create blood clots that stop bleeding. The risk of bleeding increases with low clotting factor levels. Haemophilia comes in various forms. Depending on how much clotting factor is present in your blood, hemophilia can range from severe to moderate to mild.

Prevention of Hemophilia

For those with hemophilia, bumps, falls, and harsh knocks that other individuals can bounce back from can cause serious problems. They might need to refrain from participating in sports like boxing or wrestling, riding motorbikes, or using skateboards if doing so increases their risk of getting hit or collapsing after getting hit. Your chance of injury may increase if you play other sports like baseball, basketball, or soccer. Ask your doctor what you can do to play these sports, such as wearing safety equipment.

Here are some useful advice and tactics that can lower the possibility of mishaps and injuries. In the video, you will get to know some helpful facts and insights that can help you keep safe and well, whether you have hemophilia or your loved one does.
