Why should you join?
The 2017 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Care of Girls and Women with Turner Syndrome states that weight management is the most important health intervention for TS women at annual visits, and nutrition counseling and physical activity should begin in early childhood. Weight management is an important part of Turner Syndrome care because of the weight-related issues that complicate TS care, such as diabetes, heart disease, and liver dysfunction. The good news is that adopting healthy eating and a physical activity regimen can help improve overall health, prevent chronic disease, and help to manage TS.
Did you know that caregivers are at an increased of chronic illness, too, due to increased stress levels, reduced physical activity, and greater demand on time? The Family Caregiver Alliance recommends that caregivers exercise regularly, set goals to make them feel healthy, and get proper nutrition, amongst others in order to reduce stress and risk of chronic illness.
