Simplifying Therapy for von Willebrand Disease

Diplomat Specialty Infusion Group supports patients throughout treatment.

Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is a bleeding disorder. People with VWD have low levels of a blood protein called von Willebrand factor, or the factor doesn’t work. Von Willebrand factor also carries clotting factor VIII, so people with VWD might not have enough of that clotting factor either. Any of those issues can cause blood clotting problems and heavy bleeding.


VWD is more common than any other inherited bleeding disorder, affecting up to 1 percent of the population. It is like hemophilia but usually milder. Symptoms depend on the type and severity of the disorder; some patients don’t even know they have VWD. The disorder is usually inherited, although other medical conditions can cause it. Even patients with one VWD gene who never display symptoms can pass the gene to their children.


Diplomat Specialty Infusion Group provides medication and customized clinical support for patients with von Willebrand disease.
