In brief: Little effect
In the majority of cases, lifestyle is unaffected and most people with eds believe that everyone is as flexible as they are.
Wound healing can be delayed, surgical suturing can be complicated, bruising may be apparent; pregnancy can have complications. Some forms of arthritis are more common. Most people have no problems.
