RS1800255-AA - Question 1


#1

Has anyone with this genotype been diagnosed with vEDS?


#2

I have been previously diagnosed with HEDS, but have much vascular crossover and family history, so this SNP variant has me wondering too. EDS ortho referred me to geneticist for more in depth testing, but they can’t fit me in for a year. I would like to know, at least for my kids.


#3

I’m HEDS but never been genetically tested. I do have some vascular issues. Hemorrhaged after a d&c and too much blood loss with childbirth.


#4

I have been diagnosed clinically with hEDS but not sure with vEDS, although I certainly have vascular issues (just not sure what is causing them). Does anyone know if there is a “specific” vEDS indicator?
