Hereditary Angioedema / HAE
Ever since she was a young girl, Janet suffered from unexplained bouts of swelling on her face and other parts of her body that could last for days. It was not until she was rushed to the emergency department, gasping for air and fighting for her life that she was diagnosed with hereditary angioedema or HAE. Janet was devastated because she knew that her diagnosis also matched the symptoms her daughter Lisa had. Today both mother and daughter are enjoying much better management of their HAE. The two are participating in clinical research trials under the direction of Dr. Marc Riedl, MD, Clinical Director US HAE Angioedema Center at UC San Diego Health.
