Anti Phospholipid Syndrome (also known as Antiphospholipid Syndrome or Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, APS, APLS or even Catastrophic APS and now Systemic Antiphopspholilid Antibody Syndrome - So many names for just one disease)

 

This site is intended as a research resource for medical professionals, patients and families who wish to learn more about a little known lethal, yet treatable, blood disorder that causes hypercoagulation.

Early signs of this disease are often diagnosed as many different disorders before being correctly diagnosed. This inability to correctly diagnose is not due to any form of medical inefficiency, but is due to the disease only being recognised in the last 9 years, and it's ability to mimic the symptoms of a number of well known and documented diseases.

Even though I have a clinical diagnosis of Antiphospholipd Syndrome (APS or APLS), wear an SOS Talisman bracelet and carry a medical fact card on me, in an emergency the Accident and Emergency doctors still insist on treating the possibly catastrophic events as a Migraine.

I hope this site will help to raise the awareness of many doctors and health care professionals, and give help and the comfort of understanding the problems to patients and their families.

Research into Antiphospholipd Syndrome (APS or APLS) is still being completed at a number of hospitals and research centres worldwide. The information within this site has been collected from their sites and from weekly updates from Medscape.com

 

I would be interested to hear from patients and doctors who have experience of AntiPhospholipid Syndrome (APS) and its associated disorders.

If these pages have been of interest or help please e-mail me at Eddie@apls.tk with your comments and reasons for visiting the site, as this will help in assessing the need for updates.

After seeing the message above about wishing to hear from people with Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS or APLS), I receive many mails, but some are really disturbing, and are enough to make me want to publish some of them. Please follow this link to a page which will horrify all those without Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS or APLS), but will be all too common for those with Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS or APLS)who have visited Emergency Rooms around the world. This one is about Spectrum Health United Memorial Hospital, 605 S. Bower St., Greenville, MI 48838.

 

Do you long to talk to others who share your problems from Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS or APLS), do you have questions you cannot get answered, does your doctor speak to you with long latin names and you are confused? If the anser to any of these is yes, then come over to http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/saps_support/  We would love to hear from you, and give you all the help, support and inmformation you need.

If you have found this site helpful and are a return visitor, you will notice that there are a number of new additions in the menu of diseases. These have been added as a direct result of the Antiphospholipd Syndrome (APS or APLS) Survey, where it was noticed that many of these diseases are shared by patients with APLS. I will continue to add new pages as I research them, and any help with links or information would be greatly appreciated.
