About APS

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.
