Initial consultation has to be done with a pediatrician who might direct you to a pediatric endocrinologist, or an ENT specialist or a gynecologist.
2. We have a child with Turner syndrome. If I get pregnant, will my second child also have the same condition?
No. Studies conducted so far have not established an increased risk of recurrence of this condition in a couple who have had a Turner child. No increased risk is associated with advanced maternal age either.
3. Can Turner syndrome be passed on to offspring?
No, it cannot because it is caused by a random genetic defect.
4. Is Turner syndrome preventable?
No, it is not as it occurs randomly.
5. Is having Turner syndrome a disability?
No, it is not. Most women with the condition can lead a healthy life with proper care.
