The National Hemophilia Foundation explains that bleeding disorders are a group of disorders that share the inability to form a proper blood clot.
The body produces 13 clotting factors. If any of them are defective or deficient, blood clotting is affected; a bleeding disorder can result.
Hemophilia is a deficiency of Factor VIII (A) or IV (B). The average person has between 50 and 150 percent of Factor VIII in their blood.
There are about 20,000 people with hemophilia in the US.
50-150 percent of Factor VIII
Between 6-49 percent of Factor VIII
Between 1-5 percent of Factor VIII
Less than 1 percent of Factor VIII
