For many people who live with hereditary angioedema (HAE), peripheral attacks can be painful and disrupt everyday activities. By discussing with your doctor or nurse how peripheral attacks affect you it’s possible to better manage the symptoms.

A useful leaflet to help you discuss peripheral attacks with your doctor or nurse is available for download at the bottom of this page or in the ‘Downloads’ section. It includes some of the questions below which can help you make the most out of your visit to your doctor or nurse.

HOW MANY OF YOUR LAST 10 ATTACKS AFFECTED HANDS, FEET OR OTHER PERIPHERAL AREAS?
HOW MANY OF THESE PREVENTED YOU FROM COMPLETING EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES
WHAT SORT OF EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES WERE AFFECTED BY A PERIPHERAL ATTACK
DID THESE ATTACKS LEAD TO OTHER SWELLINGS?
DID YOU TREAT THESE ATTACKS? IF SO, WHAT TREATMENT DID YOU USE?

For more information, speak to your doctor or nurse. You can download hard copies of all this information in the ‘Downloads’ section of this website.
