For example, people with Marfan syndrome often have very loose, flexible joints as a result

While these may seem harsh, and there is no known cure, there are treatments to help lower the effects such as: Enzyme replacement therapy (Targets the underlying cause) , comprehensive care, and supportive therapies.
