APS Support UK
Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an autoimmune disease which affected the blood and its ability to clot.
APS can cause low-grade symptoms including headaches and migraines, memory problems, joint pain and fatigue. It can also trigger potentially fatal symptoms such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), blood clots on the lung, strokes and heart attacks.
In pregnancy, APS is the most important potentially treatable cause of recurrent miscarriage and is also associated with other complications such as pre-eclampsia, premature babies and stillbirth.
The national charity, APS Support UK, aims to achieve earlier diagnosis and offer support to anyone affected by APS through awareness, education and research.
