Answer

Advise patients with factor XI deficiency to participate only in age-appropriate activities. In general, this means few restrictions. Physical activity precautions also apply to patients with factor XI deficiency who have a bleeding tendency. Advise them against participating in contact sports if the patient has severe disease.
