C1R - periodontal EDS - is this the right gene?

#1

And second (and last!) question in case anyone knows (thank you!)

I appear to be homozygous for C1R rs1801046.

According to the following link, that links to periodontal EDS, but according to literature periodontal EDS is very very rare, whereas Livewello says 8% of its population are homozygous for this gene.

Should I follow up on this do you think? i.e. rheumatologist etc. I have terrible problems with teeth so it does ring a bell!

Thanks, J

Which gene is that for? Such as COL3A1, ect. My reports included two rare types of EDS that I plan on checking against genetic testing soon. Just waiting on the referral.
