Your family health history is a collection of health information about you and your close relatives. It contains information about disorders, diseases, and health problems that you and your children may be at risk for now or in the future. Most important, it can also help your doctors as they consider whether or not you have Marfan syndrome or a related disorder.
We created a Family Health History packet to help you compile this information. We encourage you to fill it out and bring it with you to your doctor if you or another family member is being evaluated for Marfan syndrome or a related disorder. Sharing this information with your doctors, even at your first appointment, can help speed the diagnosis process.
