I have a diagnosis of hypermobile EDS made clinically with no genetic testing, however two of my family members have features suggestive of vascular EDS (early prominent varicose veins, gingival recession, translucent skin, aortic aneurism (asymptomatic), easy large bruising and sparse thinning hair).
I do not particularly have vEDS features myself and nobody in my family has had blood vessel or hollow organ rupture. However I would like to have genetic testing to exclude vascular EDS as I am aware there is some crossover in phenotypic features.
Anyone know anywhere I can get this genetic test? I attended the NHS genetics clinic to be diagnosed with hEDS but was not offered any genetic testing as there is no test for hypermobility type. I am prepared to pay for the test if necessary.
