I am curious, my husband has O negative blood and his friend also has negative blood. These are the only 2 hemophiliacs I know. I was wondering if there is a correlation with negative blood and hemophilia? Also, my husband has a MTHFR mutation, which makes his body less able to detox, among other things. I do not know about his friend’s status on this, but we found out through 23&me and genetic genie. Does anyone else know their status as far as blood type and/or MTHFR mutation, specifically 677… read more

I have been on Amicar most of my life and dealt with the side effects, but they seem to be affecting me more lately. I've had nausea and vomiting, and i get really dizzy and ligt headed to the point of fainting. The worst though is along with that, I get super overheated. Does anyone else have these side effects? It's gotten so bad I have even considered trying to switch to Lysteda in hopes it won't have the same effects. Anyone have experiences with switching?

My son was diagnosed at age 6 with a qualitative platelet disorder. His platelets are missing the mechanism that causes them to stack. I recently decided his medical records and noticed that when they were doing his blood work for the diagnosis his fibrinogen level was too low also but they never told me that. Could this mean that he is also a factor 1 hemophiliac... or am I over reacting?
I have von Willebrand’s Disease type 2b. Since I had a partial hysterectomy my platelets have been extremely low (as low as 23000). I need a second opinion on why my platelets will not increase. Can anyone recommend a very very good hematology in NYC.
