In brief: Simple Response YES
Ehlers-danlos syndrome is a life-long condition that people are born with.
It is caused by an abnormal gene. In most cases, people get ehlers-danlos syndrome when they get the abnormal gene from either their mother or father. Ehlers-danlos syndrome involves the body’s connective tissues, which are the tissues that make up and support the skin, bones, blood vessels, and other organs.
