Factor VIII deficiency is a rare genetic bleeding disorder characterized by a deficiency of clotting factor VIII. These clotting factors are specialized proteins that are essential for the blood to clot properly. Specifically, individuals with factor VIII deficiency have normal blood clots, but these clots are unstable and often break down, resulting in prolonged, uncontrolled bleeding episodes.

What does it measure?
The Factor VIII Functional Assay test: Analyzes the activity of factor VIII, a blood-clotting protein. A test can find out whether you have hemophilia A or another clotting disorder.Hemophilia A is a common severe bleeding disorder. In hemophilia A, blood does not clot as it is required. It puts a person at risk of uncontrolled bleeding. Under normal circumstances, certain proteins, including factor VIII, come together to form blood clots and quickly stop bleeding.If the factor VIII protein levels are low, you may have hemophilia A. Almost all people with hemophilia A are males. Women are generally the only carriers of the gene and have a 50% chance of passing it on to their children.
