What Will Happen to Children with Hemophilia?

Q:
What will happen to children with hemophilia?

A:
Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder caused by the body’s failure to form blood clots. Children with hemophilia tend to bleed longer than usual and have easy bruising.

It is important to encourage your child to tell you when he or she feels somewhere bleeds. It can help your child get quicker and more immediate treatments. Besides, overweight can lead to higher risk of bleeding. Therefore, encourage your child to stick to weight management if he or she is overweight.

Emergencies:

  • An injury to the head, neck, belly, or back
  • Persistent bleeding
  • Severe belly pain or difficulty in moving
  • Red or tea-colored urine
  • Bloody or black poop
