Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a hereditary connective tissue disorder with generalized joint hypermobility, complications of instability, chronic musculoskeletal pain, a bleeding tendency, oral health problems and food hypersensitivity. A connection between hypermobility of joints and gastrointestinal problems is described. This study shows that indigestion is common in this group of 250 respondents from the Swedish EDS group. In total, 30% of the respondents reported no sensitivity to food at all, but 47% reported hypersensitivity for more than four food items. Most frequent reported food items were carbohydrates, histamine- and birch-related foods. Indigestion, itching and diarrhoea were most common problems related to food hypersensitivity.
