Is There A Prevention Of Bleeding In Hemophilia C?
, I want to ask for patients with hemofiia C is there any prevention of bleeding (prophylaxis)? and how to diagnose hemophilia C?
Hemophilia is a disorder in the blood where the body lacks blood clotting factors. There are several types of hemophilia, namely types of hemophilia A, hemophilia B, and hemophilia C. Hemophilia C is one that is rarely found where in hemophilia C the body lacks one of the factors of blood clotting, namely the clotting factor XI. The symptoms can also be more difficult to detect.
Some common symptoms of hemophilia itself are bleeding that is difficult to stop or longer than normal people and can be more severe depending on the severity of hemophilia, can be marked easily bruised, bleeding around the joints, a tingling sensation in the joints of the body. In severe cases, sudden bleeding can occur such as nosebleeds, bleeding gums, until bleeding in the head that causes symptoms such as stroke which is a case of emergency that needs immediate treatment.
To diagnose it, screening is done if you know there is a history of hemophilia in the family where examination can be done before marriage, before pregnancy, after pregnancy or at birth or in adults with examination of blood samples and tests of clotting factor function. Later also assessed whether there are clotting factors, there are what percentage to determine the mild weight of hemophilia. Sometimes it is also detected when a person checks for bleeding time when going to surgery such as Prothrombin Time (PT) and Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT).
Self-medication will be given an injection of blood clotting factors according to the shortcomings suffered. For the prevention of bleeding, in addition to limiting physical activities that can trigger trauma or bleeding it is important to maintain dental hygiene, avoid drugs that can trigger bleeding such as pain medications, blood-thinning drugs, and as much as possible to avoid injury to the body. For prophylaxis with drugs or others still need further investigation such as existing treatments, namely anti-bleeding drugs, synthetic hormones, or hormonal therapy. It is also important to carry out periodic checks on the doctors of the disease in blood consultants (Dr. Sp.pada KHOM).
