Dr. Diana, a woman left a comment to that article…
Thanks, Yes, I’ve seen this. I had to be sure our family didn’t have any of these funky genes, as a “snake-oil” salesman we saw for a while was treating us with expensive supplements that on the surface sounded good, but when I learned there was a genetic test for it, and we turned up negative, I realized we had been “taken”. Ugh.
We are all unique in some ways, but my research is trying to hit the majority of us. There are sooooo many genes, conditions and circumstances that can come together to cause the fallout from connective tissue diseases. If we’re smart, we won’t forget our brethren — Loeys-Dietz, Sticklers, Marfans, cutis laxa, etc. As time and research continues, we will learn of many more slightly unique syndromes, I have no doubt.
Thanks, Ht888! (kind of a catchy name, there! ha.)
