Would It Be Safe To Get A Tattoo If I Have Hemophilia
Tattoos on your breasts, or elsewhere, will not have any effect on your pregnancy or on breastfeeding your new baby. It may not be a good idea to get a new tattoo during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, because of the small risk of infection from the small breaks in the skin that ...Read more
Yes: I'm a tattoo buff and have two of my own. Be sure it's what you want and wait a few years; then if your wishes haven't changed at all, check with your hematologist and your tattoo artist about just how to proceed. ...Read more
Yes: Like everything else involving body art, it's at your own risk. Your physician might be your best guide here. If you take a factor before other procedures, this would perhaps be a good time. Start with something small. I like well-chosen body art and if this is something you've really wanted for some time, I hope you're able to get it. ...Read more
Yes: Yes but there is a risk of excess bleeding. ...Read more
Blood test: If suspected any doctor can order a blood test for hemophilia. There are two major types with deficiceny of different clotting factors, hemophilia a has deficincy of factor viii and hemophilia b of factor ix. Most hospital labs can do the testing on blood sample to make the diagnosis. ...Read more
Which one is more safe chemical synovectomy or radioactive synovectomy for patients suffering from hemophilia?
Need to explain: This is because females have two x chromosomes while males have only one, so the defective gene is guaranteed to manifest in any male who carries it. Because females have two x chromosomes and haemophilia is rare, the chance of a female having two defective copies of the gene is very remote, so females are almost exclusively asymptomatic carriers of the disorder. ...Read more
Subspecialist: These are difficult, lifelong diseases that will involve care by subspecialist hematologists focused on their treatment, and much education and being proactive by the patient and family. The rx is factor replacement and care of complications. If it is hemophilia b, see if you can get into a gene therapy study. ...Read more
Can rifampicin/rifaldin be used to do chemical synovectomy in a patient having hemophilia arthropathy? Is it a safe procedure?
Too many unknowns.: There are too many unknowns for this type of treatment to be seeking advice on this forum. Please seek the help of a physician asap. ...Read more
Gene expression: This abnormal gene is carried on the X (female) chromosome. In the female, most would have a normal gene on their 2nd X, which has the ability to make up for the other gene. A male carries only one X, and if it carries the hemophilia gene, it is fully expressed because there is no "cancelling" gene around to stop it. ...Read more
One-third to one-half of males with a new diagnosis of hemophilia have no family history of the disease. This can be due to a number of possibilities (most too complicated to be discussed here), but new mutations (de novo mutations) can occur in the offspring.

My son has hemophilia, but hasn't had a major bleed in about 6 years and takes regular shots. Is it safe for him to play tackle football for his hs?
No: I think you need to speak to your son'e hematologist. As you know hemophilia is graded as mild, moderate, and severe. I don't know the severity of your son's hemophilia. Even if he has mild hemophilia, it is still very risky to have him play tackle football. I have seen a 16 or 17 year old boy who developed severe muscle bleed after playing football first time in his life. ...Read more
It is more likely: Hemophilia mostly affects men. It is rare but not impossible for a female to have hemophilia. Hemophilia is a sex-linked recessive disorder: the trait is carried on the x chromosome which a female has two of and a male only has one. This means a female would have to inherit two copies of the hemophilia gene to have the disorder. A male only has to inherit one copy. ...Read more
How to help?: Children with hemophilia can lead long productive lives. It is essential that a pediatric hematologist is working closely with you and your child to develop a plan. Hemophilia can range from very mild to severe. If you have a more specific question, ask again. Otherwise, make sure you have a good relationship with a pediatric hematologist. They can point you toward good resources for help. ...Read more
Therapy...: If you are asking when will therapy arrive that can make treating hemophilia easier, I would answer it is starting now. There are new factor replacements that have a longer half-life so that you don't have to dose as frequently (a major plus). Thinking big picture, I would say within 10 years we may have effective gene therapy to effectively cure or dramatically lessen the disease. ...Read more
Near normal: The disorder can be of varying severity, but robust treatment options are available, including recombinant drugs and gene therapy. If severity is low and resistance to drugs do not develop life expectancy is near normal. ...Read more
Not directly related: As far as we know, the two types of hemophilia (a and b) do not affect male or female fertility. In vitro fertilization with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (ivf with pgd) can be used to prevent transmission of the disease to a couple's kids, whether of not they already have an affected child, and in couples with normal fertility or those with infertility. ...Read more
Yes, you can: As you know, risk of bleeding is different depending on the severity of hemophilia. But even if you have severe hemophilia, I think you can drive a truck. But whether you can carry, load and unload heavy cargos is a different story, and you need to ask the question to your hematologist. Many severe hemophilia patients already have joint problems, and judging from your question, I guess you don't. ...Read more
No. It is rare: Hemophilia b, a congenital bleeding disorder, only in males occur at a frequency of 1 in 25, 000 males. It is far less common than hemophilia a. The bleeding symptoms are the same for both hemophilia a and b. The diagnosis should be made by a hematologist. There has been much improvement recently in the treatment and prevention of bleeding and thus all patients should be treated at hemophilia cent. ...Read more
HEMOPHILIA: Playing with somebody with a bleeding disorder is casual except taking extra precaution avoiding injury. Trauma to joints or deep tissues causes bleeding within hours depending on severity and clotting factor deficiency. ...Read more
It's not that simple: This isn't sickle cell anemia. A huge variety of different genetic mutations cause hemophilia A. The most common troublesome one is an inversion in intron 22. I'm sorry you had trouble finding an answer to this question, and perhaps you'll enjoy reading up on this complex but fascinating study. ...Read more
Yes: This should not prevent you pursuing this occupation. ...Read more
A bleeding disorder: Hemophilia b is a congenital bleeding disorder due to deficiency of a clotting factor, factor ix (9). Bleeding may start from the circumcision site. When a patient starts walking, he gets a lot of bruising, mouth bleeding, bleeding in the muscle and joints. Repeated joint bleeding may lead to parmanent joint deformity and dysfunction. Treatment is giving the missing factor, factor ix. ...Read more
