How is Von Willebrand Disease (VWD) treated?

There is no cure for VWD, but there are treatments that can help control bleeding. These include:

  • Desmopressin (DDAVP): This medication helps your body release more VWF.
  • Von Willebrand Factor Replacement Therapy: This treatment replaces the missing VWF in your blood.
  • Antifibrinolytic Agents: These medications help prevent blood clots from breaking down too quickly.
