Medical IDs for Hemophilia

The confidence to live with hemophilia

A bleeding disorder affects the way your blood normally clots. The body produces 13 clotting factors; if any of them are defective or deficient, a bleeding disorder can result. According to National Hemophilia Foundation more than 3 million Americans are living with hemophiliavon Willebrand disease (VWD), and other rare bleeding disorders (called rare factor deficiencies).

If you have a bleeding disorder, any cut or injury carries the risk of excessive bleeding. Because each type of bleeding disorder requires a very specific treatment, it’s vital for someone living with a bleeding disorder to always wear a medical ID.
