APDS is an inherited genetic condition. Symptoms of APDS can vary, even within families carrying the same genetic condition.
Take action for your health
Getting an accurate diagnosis of APDS is the first step in the journey ahead. Some people with APDS get diagnosed in their early years of life as infants or children, while others can remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years. If you think you may have APDS, particularly if you suffer from two or more of the symptoms outlined on the About APDS page, talk with your doctor about getting a genetic test.
A blood test can identify abnormal changes
in B and T cells. This combined with other lab
abnormalities and multiple symptoms,
should raise suspicion and be followed up
with a genetic test to diagnose APDS.
Genetic Testing is the only
way to diagnose APDS
