What is HAE and what are the signs of an HAE swell?

  • HAE is a rare condition that causes repeated episodes of swelling
  • Not an allergy or allergic reaction
  • May be inherited but can also occur without any family history
  • Signs vary from person to person but may include those shown here. For best results, treat at the first sign or symptom of a swell.

Your healthcare provider can confirm an HAE diagnosis based on the results of a blood test. Be prepared for your next healthcare provider visit by downloading a helpful discussion guide.

What events can trigger an
HAE swell?

Even though swells may occur without a clear trigger, it's important to recognize some common triggers that can lead to an attack, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Minor injuries
  • Dental procedures
  • Medications
  • Infections
  • Hormonal changes, such as those occurring during pregnancy or menstruation

“I've learned what to look for, so that I can anticipate when an attack is about to happen.”

— Corey, living with HAE
