A bleeding disorder is present when the blood does not clot properly.
Blood clotting is a complex process that involves as many as 20 different plasma proteins. All clotting proteins and platelets need to work effectively and in the correct order to form a proper clot that is strong enough to stop bleeding. A bleeding disorder occurs when the body is unable to activate the entire “clotting cascade” correctly.
“By the time I was 20 [I had] already lost some of my best friend’s due to HIV or inhibitor complications. Wheelchairs were a common narrative. We spent a lot of time together in the hospital.
Now we are seeing people climb Mount Everest. I thought, “it’s not for me.” I signed up with the pharmacy and turned out that I needed to change my infusion schedule.
They set me up with an adherence specialist. In a couple of months, I was off pain meds. Managed to work more, earn more, spent less time in being in pain or just feeling down because I can’t do something. We need some special kind of support, and specialty pharmacy are well equipped to provide it.”
