Ask an anonymous question about bleeding disorders and have it answered by our experts.

What makes our levels rise and fall? I have haemophilia B (factor IX deficiency).

If they continue to rise, and IF BY some miracle they reach 100% does that mean that my Haemophilia will be cured?”

Your level of factor IX in your blood will stay at the same level throughout your life. Your levels will only go up if you have a treatment dose of factor IX intravenously. You can have a treatment dose that will make your levels go up to 100% but it won’t last, and will fall back to your usual level after about a day. So bleeding can be stopped in this way, but unfortunately there is no cure at the moment.
