What doctors diagnose and treat hereditary angioedema (HAE)?
When it comes to HAE, finding a doctor who has experience is crucial, but it can also be difficult. Because it’s a rare disease, few doctors are familiar with HAE. Fortunately some doctors, typically allergists or immunologists, do specialize in this area.
Whether you think there’s a chance you have HAE or you’re trying to find ways to manage your condition, your doctor plays a key role in your health. If you’re interested in finding a doctor who is experienced in diagnosing and treating people with HAE, the US Hereditary Angioedema Association (HAEA) can help you locate an HAE specialist in your area.
