In this episode, we discuss all things Marfan Syndrome. Marfan Syndrome is a genetic condition that affects the connective tissues. Symptoms include long arms, legs, and fingers, tall and thin body type, curved spine, chest sticking out or in, flexible joints, flat feet, stretch marks, heart conditions, eye conditions, lung conditions, and other symptoms. It is diagnosed via blood tests, echocardiograms, EKG, eye examination, and imaging. Treatment includes medications to minimize symptoms, and occasionally, surgery.
