It could very well have played a part in the gastric bypass i had. I know the surgeon seemed to do a good job and that was confirmed from an enteroscopy i had in may at UCLA. The intermittant intusseption is beleived to be from EDS, and some of the gastric issues and malabsorbtion may be interlinked with other things as well. I am also looking into mastocytosis and the symptoms from it with me and seems to also be good match. Luckily I will see two specialists at UCLA this next week that i can broach the subject to because one of them will be a new one I see in dermatology and the other is my endo at UCLA as well. He is one that loves challenges. I also know some things have been found in the last year from going to UCLA and others still a mystery and will continue to persue what i can. If need arises I have an auth in place for for UCLA hospitals and clinics that does not expire until July next year so can see other doctors there if need be and explore new avenues. I can also see too have the IV vitamin infusions will do and if if I feel any better. I am willing to share my story anytime and more can be read under the Skin Wird changes in my nails where my whole hystery is mostly posted. I was not diagnosed with EDS until November last year at age 40 but think it has a alot to explain alot of things iin my life. My son also has a d deficiency despite taking supplementation and it seems that many with EDS also have d deficiencies as well. D plays a major in many aspects of our lives. A good website I have found is http://vitamindcouncil.org this has a wealth of info with many many articles and studies on vitamin d in varied subjects. Hope this helps as well. I will relook at the site you posted, I had been there before and read before but need to refresh memeory and think and will answer more by morrow or later today.
