Frequently asked questions

I have questions about blood clotting factors. How can HSC help me?

If you are prescribed a Takeda treatment, HSC offers personalized support from an expert Healthcare Educator (HCE). An HCE can answer questions about your condition and prescribed Takeda treatment. HCEs can also provide support in Spanish. Learn more about HCEs and how to request HCE support here.

Keep in mind, your HCE does not replace your healthcare provider. Be sure to call your healthcare provider if you have questions or concerns about your treatment plan.

I'm planning to travel soon with my prescribed Takeda treatment. How can HSC help me?

If you'll be traveling with your treatment, here are some important tips to keep in mind:

  • Inform your healthcare provider of your plans and follow any instructions they may provide you
  • Make a list of hospitals or Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTCs), along with their contact information, that are along your travel route
  • Keep your treatment and supplies with you at all times (for example, in your carry-on luggage). That way, you'll be able to use your items at any time on the way to your destination. Also, they'll be better protected against temperature changes, rough handling, or loss
  • Pack extra medication just in case you experience a travel delay
  • When going through security, carry a copy of a travel letter describing your condition and the need for your medication
  • Wear a medical ID bracelet or carry a medical ID card with you at all times
  • Make sure to have all treatment, supplies, and medical devices clearly labeled

If you have questions, HSC offers personalized support from expert Healthcare Educators (HCEs). An HCE can provide one-on-one health education about your condition and your prescribed Takeda treatment. HCEs can also provide support in Spanish. Learn more about HCEs and how to request HCE support here.
