Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) is a very rare and potentially life-threatening genetic condition HAE symptoms include edema (swelling) in various parts of the body, including: hands, feet, face and airway (throat).
Swelling of the airway or throat is particularly dangerous because it can cause death by asphyxiation.
- FDA approved treatments for HAE have been available in the US since late 2008.
- HAE therapies provide an opportunity for HAE patients to achieve lifelong health.
- According to recent studies, pregnancy may aggravate or alleviate symptoms in equal proportion. Patients should partner with an HAE-knowledgeable treating physician regarding treatment before, during and after pregnancy.
