Maternal-Fetal Medicine 47 years experience
Turner's Syndrome: The prognosis for turner's syndrome diagnosed at birth is usually good. They will be short. They have streaked gonads. They can have a webbed neck. There can be lymphedema. There can be associated perceptual problems. They are not necessarily mentally retarded. There can be coarctation of the aorta.
Dr. Ally-Khan Somani

Good with monitoring: Turner syndrome (ts) results from a problem with the chromosomes and so there is no cure. However, the prognosis for ts can be good, with careful health monitoring and early treatment of problems that can occur. Many women with turner syndrome lead full and active lives and can expect a normal lifespan. Visit www.Turnersyndrome.Org for more info.

Depends: It all depends on the diagnoses and disease that is being prognosed. In the end, it is based on the most common course of a particular disease, including duration, complications, life expectancy, etc. It is really an educated guess.
A 21-year-old member asked:

How should I interpret "prognosis information"?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Stephen Noga
Medical Oncology 34 years experience
Source is important: Information from search engines is "unfiltered" and can be devastating if misinterpreted. Only people quite familiar with all aspects of your disease can accurately give you initial prognostic information. However, once you know the details (exact disease type, stage, special studies like markers or chromosome analysis) you can use this to help evaluate information on the web from reliable sites.

What are the symptoms of petit mal seizures and the prognosis for the future if I have them?

Dr. Richard Simmons
Pediatric Neurology 18 years experience
Variable: The term "petit mal" is an antiquated term. It was used in the past to describe seizures that were not convulsive in nature. In the past few decades, the categorization of seizures has changed dramatically. Petit mal seizures are typically one of two types of seizures - absence seizures or complex partial seizures. The prognosis varies widely between the two.

See a retinologist: Macular degeneration is a compromise of the circulation to the center, critical vision of the eye(s). The course is highly variable but you should start the areds formula supplement and if you have the "wet" form your retinal specialist can assist with a terrific pharmaceutical. You may have a clue to the time course for yourself if you have family members with the condition.
