Dr. John E. Stork answered:

What sort of disease is a clotting disorder?

Bleeding

Hemophilia
Our bodies have a system of blood and tissue factors and cells (platelets) which cause our blood to clot with an injury, so that bleeding stops. Abnormality of any component causes a clotting disorder. Most common is excessive bleeding, as in hemophilia or VonWillebrands disease; you can also have excessive clotting, or what is termed a thrombotic disorder.

Can't donate
