Have you gone from healthy to very ill in a short period of time? Maybe it's APS?

Antiphospholipid (AN-te-fos-fo-LIP-id) antibody syndrome (APS) Lupus Anticoagulant (anti-co-ag-u-lant) is an autoimmune disorder. . In APS the body makes antibodies that mistakenly attack phospholipids—a type of fat. Phospholipids are found in all living cells and cell membranes, including blood cells and the lining of blood vessels. When antibodies attack phospholipids, cells are damaged. This damage causes blood clots to form in the body's veins and arteries, vessels which transport blood to and from your heart. 

On Monday, 11/3/14 at 8PM Eastern, Dr. Jess Armine will interview James Weedmark, spokesperson for APS International, an organization dedicated to spreading awareness about this condition. His involvement with APS became when he was diagnosed in 2006 after a very long trying time health wise looking for what was causing him so many issues in such a short time frame. Going from being a healthy man, never having a cold, to extremely ill with seizures to multiple visits to emergency rooms. Eventualy he would diagnosed with Lupus anticoagulant, a slightly more aggressive form of Antiphospholipid Syndrome.

He has consented to share his story with us to raise awareness about this dangerous condition. Please join us...as usual, there wil be time for Q&A!  See you then!
