Turner Syndrome

Girls with Turner syndrome have a host of issues in various parts of the body, which need to be anticipated and dealt with. Each girl may have her own set of matters, and no two girls might be the same. Common problems are: short height (for which Growth Hormone treatment is recommended), delayed/ absent puberty ( for which a gradual course of oestrogen (female hormone) is introduced in a manner that replicated the normal growing up of a girl). Multiple other matters when dealt with early and appropriately can enhance the quality of life for these children. Though this is a genetic condition, the main care of the child is always best delivered by a Paediatric Endocrinologist.
