    • Treatment
      Sadly, there is no cure for turner’s syndrome because it is caused by a missing ‘X’ chromosome. But there are multiple things that patients can do to minimize the affects of the disease.
      Growth Hormone with a small dose of androgen can help patients grow to full adult height.
      Estrogen therapy has been known to reduce the affects of Osteoporosis in patients.
      There is also modern reproductive technology that can allow patients to become pregnant if they wish.
    • Inheritance
      Turner’s Syndrome is thought to be inherited from the father because in approximately 75% of cases the missing chromosome is the paternal ‘X’ chromosome. There are multiple ways to test for Turner’s, most symptoms would easily be noticed at a regular doctor checkup.
    • What Life Will Be Like
      A Turner’s patient can live a normal life as long as the patient is monitored closely by a doctor in the case of a disaster or accident.
