Angioedema Treatment - Idiopathic Angioedema Treatment

Idiopathic angioedema treatment is similar to that of normal angioedema treatment. However, as the causes are unknown in cases of idiopathic angioedema, treating it is more difficult.

If you think you may have  idiopathic angioedema treatment, have an allergy test done by a professional. Urine and blood tests are helpful in order to determine whether you have angioedema. If the results are positive, certain therapies or antihistamines can offer relief.

Hereditary Angioedema Treatment

Hereditary Angioedema Treatment is more difficult as compared to acquired Angioedema Treatment. In hereditary angioedema, triggers must be avoided, as the condition usually does not respond to epinephrine, antihistamines, or corticosteroids.

Finely tuned treatment is based on C1-INH concentrate from donor blood, which must be administered under medical supervision. In many European countries, C1-INH concentrate is not commonly available; therefore, fresh frozen blood plasma, which also contains C1-INH, can be used as an alternative.

Histamine H1 antagonists counter the effect of histamine and its response in the sensory nerve endings and the blood vessels. These histamines are more effective in stopping histamine response than in reversing it, as they are not very useful if histamine reaction has taken place. On the other hand, histamine H2 antagonists are reversible competitive blockers of histamine at the H2 receptors.

Treatment for Angioedema

You can get urine and blood tested in order to determine whether you have angioedema. If the results are positive, it can be cured with certain therapies or antihistamines. If you experience difficulty in breathing, get some fresh air and take long, slow breaths. If the problem persists or worsens, consult a doctor. The most important thing is avoiding any other drugs when you are suffering from angioedema.

Acquired Angioedema Treatment

Epinephrine has been very successful in cases of acquired angioedema. Furthermore, in acquired angioedema, antifibrinolytics, such as tranexamic acid, hereditary angioedema types I and II, and non-histaminergic angioedema may be of use. Cinnarizine has also been proven to be useful, especially in patients with liver problems, as it blocks the formation of C4.
