Treatment and Care

People with bleeding disorders are confronted with many physical, medical, emotional and psychological challenges. How well they meet these challenges depends on a number of things, including the severity of the illness, the quality of medical care, the ability to pay for treatment, and the support of family, friends and the community.

Because there is no cure, people with hemophilia require lifelong treatment requiring episodic infusions of factor concentrate. Treatment costs can exceed $150,000 annually, not including costs associated with the complications of HIV or hepatitis.

Von Willebrand disease is typically a milder disorder which can often be treated with a special nasal spray. More severe cases require infusions of clotting factor.
