What is TS?
The following description of Turner Syndrome (TS) and explanation of some of the issues involved in living with the condition are not definitive and a doctor or endocrine specialist should always be consulted whenever a diagnosis of Turner syndrome has been given.
The Turner Syndrome Support Society [UK] and other International Turner syndrome support groups can help with practical information on living daily with TS and can in most cases offer contact with other girls and women with TS and their families.
TS is a ‘cradle to grave’ condition and as such should be treated throughout life in a variety of ways. The girl/woman with TS should be under the care of an endocrinologist [doctor specialising in hormones], initially a paediatric endocrinologist followed by attendance at an Adult TS clinic.
Living with TS
Some babies have feeding problems or speech problems, and a speech therapist can help with both.
Some young girls have behavioural difficulties; this could be due to difficulty in concentrating, spatial awareness or hearing problems. Ask your GP, Health Visitor, Specialist or the TSSS for more information.
