Treatment possibilities

Treatment possibilities

If you’re living with haemophilia, you may need treatment. But when it comes to haemophilia, there is no “one size fits all” approach. The kind of treatment you’ll need depends on many things, for example, the severity of your condition, how old you are, your individual personal needs and what you want from life! The goal is to reduce the frequency and severity of bleeding episodes and prevent the short and long-term complications of bleeding, such as joint damage and pain. Personlised treatment can provide you with protection tailored to you, your dreams and ambitions, and how you choose to live your life.

Although the management and treatment of haemophilia is a process requiring lifelong commitment from patients, family members and care providers alike - the good news is that research and development have come a long way. This means that you and others living with haemophilia can live healthier lives with more possibilities which may not have been possible in the past.

Remember you're in charge

Whether you need regular prophylaxis (pronounced prof-ill-ax-iss) to prevent bleeding from happening or treatment at the time your bleeding happens (called on demand therapy)1, your treatment and how you make the most of your possibilities are up to you and your haemophilia care team.

To make the best choices, it is important to understand your different treatment options and discuss these with your haemophilia care team. Once you're on top of this, you can start living your life to the full.
