||Blood Diseases & Disorders
Thrombophilia is potentially dangerous blood clotting in veins or arteries.
Several types of conditions have been identified which lead to
dangerous clots. These conditions may be present at birth or may occur
as a result of another condition.
Thalassemia is an inherited disorder that causes mild or severe anemia. The anemia
is due to reduced hemoglobin and fewer red blood cells than
normal. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries
oxygen to all parts of the body.
Hemophilia is a rare, inherited bleeding disorder in which your blood doesn't clot
normally. If you have hemophilia, you may bleed for a longer time
than others after an injury. You also may bleed internally, especially
in your knees, ankles, and elbows. This bleeding can damage your organs
or tissues and sometimes be fatal.
