In brief: EDS types

There are 6 major types of eds, they are inherited disorders marked by loose joints, hyper elastic skin that bruises easily, easily enlarged blood vessels.
They are called types 1 through 6. A variety of genetic mutations cause problems with collagen, the material that provides strength to soft tissue structures and bone. Collagen typing and gene mutation testing can determine the eds type.
