    Default Turner Syndrome

    Are there any bubhubbers with experience with Turners Syndrome?

    My daughter has had some bloods taken to test for Turners (amongst other things). (mosaic turners?)

    Can I ask what symptoms your special person displayed, how old when they were diagnosed, and any other info you can offer? Thank you

    Default Turner Syndrome

    A friend of mine gave birth to a stillborn baby with mosaic turners earlier this year.

    From memory the child was going to have lots of growth troubles, heart and kidney troubles and some other things.

    Hope things turn out OK for you

    hi, my best friend has turners. she is very petite only 5" ish but is stocky by no means overweight. her health issues have been many and constant. think it has mainly been the doctors intervention (testing to understand it better). lots of feet problems, heart issues (mainly whilst pregnant) yep she has 2 wonderful healthy children without turners which she carried normally but delivered by c section.
    i have also cared for an 8 yr old with turners and once again she was little but beside the constant medical testing she is a 'normal' child.
    both had a lot of injections and medications to make them grow and constant appointments.
    if u want any other specifics i can ask my friend

    Thank you everyone

    My daughter is short stature, low weight, low IQ (74), hypotonic, poor coordination, diagnosed ASD, ODD, ADHD, OCD, has had heart issues (coartation of the aorta), feeding problems (malobsorbtion, TPN and tube feed dependant), airways issues (laryngotracheamalacia) and many more. Dr says she has dysmorphic features.

    BUT DD has the fish test a few years ago and im positive her growth hormones were checked and we're fine. Dr want the mosaic?? done on the Turners though as that wasnt done, but i thought the the hormones were fine it couldnt be turners?

    My sister has Turners. When she was younger, she was smaller than normal and had to take growth hormones. She is now normal size and other than she is unable to ever have children you would never know...

    My 18 yr old cousin has Turners. She is extremely intelligent, graduated from highschool with high grades, studying at uni now.

    She is quite small (probably under 5ft) and slender although she has been on medication to boost her size and hormones, that seems to be working quite slowly. This condition was not picked up until she was about 15 though so the medication didn't have a full effect.

    She is unable to have children herself however is looking forward to being a mum via donor eggs etc

    All the best x

    Default Turner Syndrome

    My daughter is 13 months old and has trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome) mosaic 77% affected from her blood test at age 6 months. She is very healthy but little at 6.8 kg. as a previous poster said - mosaicism is difficult as it just depends on what organs etc are affected and there is also a theory on cell rescue. Xx

    my 12 year old daughter has the genes which would indicate she should have turners, however she doesnt and never has, presented as such. she also has severe quad spastic cp, and her turners was discovered at birth. id think, like all things, turners is different for different people, from a mild presentation, to everything!
    good luck, and ask you geneticist every question you can think of! (be prepared tho for not many answers - in my experience theres also way more questions then there is answers!)
