Show Notes

In this episode, Jill and Dr. Cathy Pederson discuss the ins and outs of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Type III (hypermobile) and its relevance for many POTS patients. Many POTS patients also have EDS, a genetic mutation of one or more genes that code for the protein collagen. How can that defect cause so much havoc?
