I received the official report from my genetics team regarding our last visit. This report was written before my tests for VEDS & CEDS came back negative.

In the report they explain that I meet all criteria for HEDS and that barrinflg positive tests for the other two, they will likely formally diagnose me as having HEDS. However, they also mention possibly testing for the periodontal eds mutation, which they say only two labs in the states test for. My question is, what does this dazzle know about periodontal eds? My teeth tend to crack, crumble, and generally fall apart. My youngest had to have caps on all of his molars by the time he was 3 and he has to use special mouthwash for bleeding gums. My dad has lost at least all his bottom teeth and my best guess is the top ones are gone too. Any info is appreciated!
