Young Women Urged to Recognize Symptoms of Widely Undiagnosed Bleeding Disorder. AUSTIN, TEXAS (May 13, 2010) /PRNewswire/ — To promote the importance of screening young women for von Willebrand disease (VWD), the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) today announced the launch of its VWD Young Women’s Education Campaign.

This educational initiative is designed to inform teenage girls and their healthcare providers about the five signs and symptoms of VWD, the most common hereditary bleeding disorder. VWD is caused by a lack of working von Willebrand factor (VWF), a protein in the blood that is necessary for clotting. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that VWD affects one to two percent or three to six million people in the U.S. alone. While the disorder affects men and women equally, women are at a greater risk for miscarriage, life-threatening bleeding following childbirth, and for undergoing unnecessary hysterectomies.

In addition, consumers cited their own inability to remember information as a barrier to effective health management. The study, titled "Managing Family Health and Health Information," resulted from an online survey of 1,065 adults that was conducted by Opinion Research Corporation on April 1 and 2, 2010. Nearly one-third of survey respondents said they spend more time "keeping information organized" than they do finding answers to health questions or dealing with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. Mayo Clinic and Microsoft co-developed Mayo Clinic Health Manager, a free online application that helps people organize and keep track of health information for themselves and their families.
