May 1st marks the first day of Ehler’s Danlos Awareness month.

Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a collection of heritable connective tissue disorders. Either directly or indirectly, EDS are known or thought to alter the biology of collagen in the body (the most abundant protein), which can lead to multi-systemic symptoms. Each type has certain physical traits and with notable exception to the most common form, the hypermobile type of EDS, most types have a known disease-causing gene.
