Marfacts 7, 8 and 9

Hi everyone, sorry for the late facts. This weekend was pretty miserable pain and sleep-wise so I got a bit behind.

In honor of Marfan Syndrome awareness month, here are some Marfact for the past 3 days (provided by the wonderful Marfan Foundation).

Marfact #7: Marfan syndrome and related disorders affect about 200,000 people in the United States. These disorders are not nearly as rare as we think!

Marfact #8: Marfan syndrome and related disorders affect men and women of all races and ethnicities equally!

Marfact #9: Diagnosing Marfan syndrome requires a multi‐system clinical exam; that means an examination by a heart doctor, a bone doctor and an eye doctor. Genetic testing can sometimes be helpful.
