When there are hemophilia hereditary factors, it is advisable to carry out studies to identify if the fetus suffers from it, while in children and adults, it is possible to diagnose it through a blood test.
Hemophilia can be diagnosed early in severe cases given the symptoms, but when it comes to minor varieties there are no clear symptoms until adulthood, so many people realize that they are hemophiliacs when they undergo surgery and have excessive bleeding.
The appropriate treatment for a severe variety is the replacement therapy of the corresponding clotting factor intravenously when there is a hemorrhage or used as prevention on a permanent basis.
Other treatments that can be combined to achieve a better result are:
- Hormonal, by supplying desmopressin in mild cases of hemophilia.
- Clotting drugs.
