RAISING AWARENESS OF HYPERMOBILE EHLERS-DANLOS SYNDROME & HYPERMOBILITY SPECTRUM DISORDER
Knowledge is power
hEDS & HSD are not rare, they are just rarely diagnosed!
'In the UK, rheumatologists' estimates of the number of cases seen annually, strongly suggest that the true diagnosis, in the majority of patients with Hypermobility Syndrome, is overlooked by up to 95%. If these data are confirmed, the specialty of rheumatology worldwide will justly hang its corporate head in shame.'
(The Journal of Rheumatology - Prof. Rodney Grahame CBE, MD, FRCP, FACP)
