A 41-year-old member asked:
do poor healing wounds often have connection to marphan or eds?

Healing problems: Marfans disease and eds are congenital connective tissue disorders of genetic origin. They are both extremely uncommon. Whereas people suffering from either of these disorders may have difficulties healing wounds, most people heal wounds perfectly well.

Connective tissue: The connective tissue disorders of Marfan's and ehlers danlos are genetic disorders and not a true connection to wounds, and poor wound healing. Patients with poor wound healing occasionaly have malnutrition, where protein supplements in the diet are a benefit.
