About BDAI

The Bleeding Disorders Alliance Illinois (BDAI) supports families affected by inherited bleeding disorders such as Hemophilia and von Willebrand disease by providing its members with the unbiased medical information and resources that allow them to live a healthy and active lifestyle. This neutral information is especially important for families seeking answers and support soon after the initial diagnosis.

BDAI also fosters a welcoming community for families to meet, interact and share information and advice. Through education and support, BDAI helps its members advocate on their own behalf with public and private insurance providers, medical services and government agencies, while representing the bleeding community in the world at large.

Testing for Inhibitors

If you have hemophilia, should you be tested for an inhibitor?
Yes! According to new guidelines recently released from the National Hemophilia Foundation's (NHF's) Medical and Scientific Advisory Council (MASAC), if you have hemophilia (an inherited bleeding disorder in which the blood does not clot properly) you should be tested for inhibitors at least once every year. Read below to learn more about testing and minimizing the risk for inhibitors.
