Sadly, there is incorrect information about angioedema in this documentary that disturbs me. I don’t know if this documentary was Dr backed and researched or by patients, but there ARE some indescrepencies. For one, there are at least four different types of angioedema before subclasses. They are allergic, non-allergic drug, HAE, and idiopathic. Second, HAE & some forms of idiopathic angioedema ARE bradykinin mediated angioedemas.
While it is very important to get awareness about these diseases out into the public, it is equally important to get accurate information to them.
As a person with hereditary angioedema, I was quite disappointed with all of the inaccuracies. Not just for my own sake, but for all the people with angioedema. This will only serve to make our struggle harder.
