My name is Mea Dafel. I am 10 years old and live in Pretoria, South Africa.
I was diagnosed with HAE when I was 2 years old. This was after I got swelling for the first time. Last year when I started using Cycklocapron, but before that I did not use any medication. Since using it my swelling is much less and more controlled.
Me and my family have never let HAE stop me from doing what I love!
I love being active and I do a variety of sports: high jump, netball, hockey and tumbling.
I have been hospitalized about 5 times due to stomach and throat swelling.
Thanks to the Professors from Cape Town and the emergency info resources we received from the HAE SA conference, we have been able to successfully guide Doctors in treatment plans and emergency cases.
