HAE Angioedema - Hereditary Angioedema HAE

HAE angioedema is the ellipsis for hereditary angioedema HAE. This is the most lethal and feared form of the angioedema not only as it passes down the families but it has a higher mortality rate as compared to its counterpart i.e. acquired angioedema. Last but by no means the least; hereditary angioedema treatment is also a lot thornier than any of its other form. In the rest of the article I will describe the details of this skin problem and how you can manage it.

Angioedema is a rapid swelling of skin possibly due allergic as well as non-allergic causes. If this disease is a familial problem and has been progressing in your family, then it is called hereditary angioedema (HAE) or familial angioedema. It is an extremely rare auto-somal dominant disorder of C1 inhibitor i.e. C1-INH, deficiency manifested by painless swelling.

The most common and obvious symptom of hereditary angioedema is swelling, which can develop abruptly on the eyes, lips, tongue and throat. However, it is not limited to these areas only, and any other part of the body can also be affected e.g. hands and feet. Urticaria (hives) may also develop along with it. Swelling in the throat or tongue can cause blockage in the upper airway. This may result in difficulty in breathing and even suffocation.

As symptoms of hereditary angioedema HAE diagnosis resemble those of other common disorders, it can go on for a long time without being detected. Its diagnosis is typically made on the clinical picture and routine blood tests are performed. The tryptase levels of mast cell may be lofty if the attack was due to an acute allergic reaction.

As said earlier, hereditary angioedema treatments are more difficult and need serious medical attention. You may have an allergy test with the professional. You may also get urine and blood tested in order to find, whether you are infected with angioedema or not. If the results are positive, it can be cured with certain therapies or antihistamines. If you experience difficulty in breathing, try to go in open air and breathe slowly and consult a doctor. The foremost thing is avoiding any other drugs when you are infected with HAE angioedema.
