Does Turner Syndrome Cause Celiac
Lack of chromosome: Normal humans have 22 pairs of regular chromosomes (chms) and one pair of sex chms .At conception you are supposed to get one of each pair from each parent. If one of the sex (X) chms is lost from the egg, the fetus (which can survive the mistake) will be born with 22 pr of regular chms and only one X.The defect occurs in the formation of the egg. The effect on the kid varies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

One of 8 different genetic mutations is passed on to a fetus by 1 parent or happens spontaneously to cause noonan syndrome. 2 related genetic mutations are passed on to the fetus by 1 parent to cause klippel-feil syndrome. ...Read more

Will children with turner syndrome, if not treated with growth hormones jabs, still grow tall naturally?
Very unlikely: There are separate growth charts for untreated girls with turner's. The charts clearly show shorter final adultheight compared to regular charts. In fact, every short girl with no other signs/symptoms of turner's, should be evaluated to rule out turner's. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
