Preventing Blood Clots For Patients With Hereditary AT Deficiency
February 12, 2013
Blood Clotting Disorder With Devastating Consequences
Hereditary AT Deficiency is a blood-clotting condition affecting 1 out of 2000 to 3000 people in the United States. People with a family history of blood clots must be tested. Pregnant women with undiagnosed hereditary AT deficiency are at an even higher risk – for both mother and baby. Join Dr. Michael Paidas, and woman patient with this condition as they go close-up and personal in a discussion of this rare but potentially life-threatening condition. The Balancing Act…it’s morning TV…made for a woman.
On this episode, Beth Troutman tells her story; Christina Nicholson embarks on an adventure to Orlando with her family; and former football player Marc Bouniconti shares his journey.
Three decades later, Marc Buoniconti, a quadriplegic, visits The Balancing Act to talk about his life, his mission, and his goal to one day walk again.
The Balancing Act's host Christina Nicholson and her family are embarking on a fun-filled vacation to Orlando, Fla., also known as the "theme park capital of the world."
