You should encourage him to swim and try to interest him in computer games, videos and books. C. Your son has a great chance at having a normal, active life; however, how he handles his hemophilia depends on your response to his diagnosis.

Whether you’re a person living with haemophilia, a partner or a parent of someone with haemophilia, you will face different challenges which evolve over a lifetime. Figuring out boundaries, learning to care for yourself and making compromises are just some of the common learning curves that come with a life with haemophilia. A turning point in the history of haemophilia came in the middle of the 20th century when researchers identified an “antihaemophilic globulin” that could reduce the clotting time in haemophilic blood, thereby paving the way for the introduction of cryoprecipitate and the first clotting factor concentrates for the treatment of haemophilia A Cited by:

'Living with haemophilia' has established itself as the complete guide to haemophilia and related disorders. Written primarily for affected families, the book also provides a useful and up-to-date guide for doctors, paramedical staff, including nurses and physiotherapists, and teachers. It explains the inheritance of haemophilia, bleeding episodes and how to control them, safe treatment. This book is an invaluable resource that provides an overview of all aspects of the care of patients with haemophilia, covering how to assess both bleeding children and adults, Haemophilia A and B, molecular basis of the disease, the role of factors in coagulation, epidemiology, pharmacokinetics, and treatment of inhibitors.

The general term haemophilia describes a group of inherited blood disorders in which there is a lifelong defect in the clotting mechanism of the blood.

Blood contains many proteins called clotting factors, and these work to stop bleeding. The lack of clotting factor causes people with haemophilia to bleed for longer periods of time than people whose blood factor levels are.
