Early diagnosis saves lives
This section of our website aims to provide answers to many of the questions people ask our charity when they are either seeking a diagnosis or have just been diagnosed.
Current treatment focuses on blood thinning (anticoagulation) therapy, but there are other medications which may also help alleviate symptoms.
APS can present with many symptoms, some low grade and others more serious. If you are seeking a diagnosis, it is often very important to look at your family history of thrombosis or other autoimmune conditions.
Find out how APS is diagnosed, including what you need to tell your doctor and what tests to expect.
APS can cause both low-grade symptoms and potentially fatal conditions as a result of blood clots. View our overview of APS symptoms.
