Positive Options for Antiphospholipid Syndrome: Self-help and Treatment
An important look at a dangerously under-diagnosed autoimmune disease. APS (also known as "sticky blood syndrome") makes the blood clot too easily and is potentially fatal. Increasingly common, it threatens to become more prevalent than MS and lupus. This book provides medical information, case studies, and patient interviews to help the reader learn to cope.
