How does Danazol treat hereditary angioedema?

Danazol may be used to treat hereditary angioedema, which is a condition that causes severe swelling in your face, airway, arms, legs, hands, feet, and genitals. It's caused by abnormal function of certain proteins that affect how your immune system works. Danazol may effectively treat hereditary angioedema because this medication increases levels of certain proteins in your blood. Once those substances are regulated, the immune system functions more normally, and these attacks of swelling won't occur. However, there are significant side effects associated with Danazol, so it's important to talk to your doctor to determine whether Danazol is right for treating your hereditary angioedema.
