I was wondering if there was a Board that deals with this issue ?


This is a Rare AutoImmune Disorder. Medical abbreviation is aPL.


It is linked to :

- Recurrent Miscarriages

- Stillbirths

- Pre- Eclampsia in pregnancy

- Unexpectedly small babies

- Venous or Arterial Thrombosis - Clots form in blood vessels, ( moreso during PG ).


I have found articles regarding aPL, but was wondering if there was a specific board, or nearby relevant one, that I could visit.

Also, if there isn't a board, how I could find anyone who has this disorder, to communicate with ?


Thank You !
