Living with hereditary angioedema (HAE)

Everyone experiences their disease differently, but regardless of where you are in your journey, HAE likely affects—or has affected—your life in a number of ways.

Treating your HAE

As you may already know, there are 2 types of therapies used to treat HAE:

Rescue therapy, or acute therapy, is used to help manage or lessen symptoms when an attack is coming on or has already started.

Preventative therapy, or prophylactic therapy, is taken regularly as a way to help stop HAE attacks from happening.

Because treatment with rescue therapy alone is not always enough, people living with HAE often use both types of therapy to manage their disease. Long-term treatment with preventative therapy is the best way to prevent future HAE attacks.
