In brief: In your genes

Marfan syndrome is caused by a mutation in in the gene that codes for fibrillin-1.
You cannot change your genes. Abnormal or deficient fibrillin production affects the structure of your eyes, heart, blood vessels, and bones and ligaments. The severity of effects in different individuals is highly variable.
