My son has had genetic testing, prior to him turning three. We were told that it was complete and still the best out there.
My question though, does that mean that he should not be tested for things like Marfan (FBN1 mutation) as it would have been detected? Or is the genetic testing different, like they don’t look for specific mutations? He has been tested for vascular and it was negative too, and they knew he had the genetic testing done, so why do that one too? I’m really confused on all the genetic parts—

I don’t have any answers for you, but I see a geneticist in August. What should I ask for particularly? He knows I’m coming to discuss EDS, am I wrong to assume he’ll know what to do? Haha… silly question, I should assume he knows nothing!!
