Skydiving with Deviated Nasal Septum

Hi - thanks for taking the time to read this!  

I have a friend who's considering skydiving, but she's a little concerned that her history of nosebleeds might revisit her at high altitudes.  She has been diagnosed with a deviated nasal septum and thinks that past nosebleeds have been caused by an increase in elevation from high school to college.  

Is this something we should be concerned about?  Are there any measures we can take to lessen the chance of a nosebleed prior to taking the dive?  Again, thank you for your time!
