Because hereditary angioedema (HAE) is an unpredictable, lifelong journey, you might always be worrying about the next attack. So, you do all you can, sometimes even making sacrifices, to avoid triggering one. It's time to take a look at how this rare, debilitating, and potentially life-threatening disease may be limiting your life. Then, find out what you can do to manage it.
Do you have questions about HAE? We're here to help you find answers.
One of the biggest challenges with managing HAE is the fact that it can change over time. The HAE symptoms you have experienced in the past may not be the symptoms you experience now. HAE attack location, severity, and frequency can all change.
It's a good idea to be aware of how changes in your HAE may impact your life and to discuss those learnings with your doctor.
Currently, there is no cure for HAE. However, there are things you can do to help manage it. HAE can be very different from person to person. That's why it's important to work with your healthcare team to develop a complete management plan that's right for you. The goal of your plan is to reduce the frequency and severity of your HAE attacks. After all, even one HAE attack is too many.
