Hereditary Angioedema

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare genetic condition. It causes severe swelling and mainly targets the limbs, throat, and abdomen. This swelling, if left untreated, can be life-threatening.

But even though HAE is a rare condition and isn’t widely known or recognized, there’s no reason to give up hope. By recognizing your triggers, you can reduce flare-ups. Check out these articles to learn more about HAE, including what to ask your doctor, how to make a treatment plan, and where to look for more support.
