    I’m very happy to hear that KP is staying on top of this potentially deadly, and not uncommon, condition.

    My father (who was unfortunately not a KP member) had to push his doctor to diagnose his. He had had 2 brothers whose aneurysms were barely caught in time and knew he was at high risk.

    He finally convinced his non-KP doctor to test him. An aneurysm was found and successfully operated on.

    If he had been a KP member, he wouldn’t have had to insist!

    Wonderful! Thank goodness that the flag was implemented in the system and that the doctor enouraged him to have the screening!
