Fact #29: EDS can also be accompanied by blood disorders such as clotting and platelet abnormalities. Skin that is easily bruised occurs in all types of EDS to varying degrees and is essentially caused by the fragility of the body’s capillaries.

Fact #30:  Connective tissue can surprisingly also be found in the bones and blood as well as being the glue that holds the body together inside and out. Collagen alone is found in tendons, ligaments, skin, the cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut, and intervertebral discs. All of this helps explain the endless possible complications and outcomes of EDS.

Fact #31: To learn more about EDS you can visit the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation’s website
