How can I work in partnership with my doctor, like Loek?
Some people with long-term health conditions like hemophilia are not used to putting their own questions and suggestions about treatment to their doctor. You may feel nervous about doing so, but be assured that your doctor is deeply invested in your wellbeing and it is important that they understand your thoughts and feelings.
In Loek’s case, he had been struggling with infusing, which led him to miss doses and compromise his protection. It was only by communicating this to his doctor that they were able to find a solution together.
