Know the signs. Change a life.
For more than a decade, the median diagnosis age for Turner Syndrome has been 15 years old. This is a problem. In the best possible situations, Turner Syndrome girls are diagnosed at birth or even earlier. Life-changing interventions for Turner Syndrome generally begin in infancy and continue through adolescence (shown in the infographic below).
Additionally, Turner Syndrome is completely random, meaning any woman or girl could be affected. Factors like race, geographic location, and socioeconomic status do not indicate who is more likely be affected. Turner Syndrome awareness and education must reach every corner of the globe.
