In brief: Generally, normal
People with eds generally have a normal lifespan.
Though, those with the rare vascular type of eds have a high risk of sudden death from organ or vessel rupture. Heart-related complications can shorten the lifespan of people with marfan syndrome, though many live into their 60's and 70's (i.e. Normal lifespan) with careful medical management.
