I understand XXX syndrome can cause tallness in girls. Is that symptom noticed early on or can that come about later in life (years past puberty)?
By adolescence: Hi. The tallness is noticed by adolescence. The height increase only occurs in females with 47, XXX until the growth plates in the long bones fuse (which occurs relatively later in 47, XXX females than in 46, XX). Once the growth plates are fused, there is no increase in linear height. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes, it is possible!: Typically long legs & large feet go with tall stature (like puppies with big paws) but not 100% of t he time. I do have a few patients with big feet who aren't tall. When the shoe size gets larger than 13, it becomes harder to find shoes in stores and you often have to search on-line & can be more expensive, hopefully they don't grow too large! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Maybe if you babysit your 2 beautiful kids & give your brick-house wife some " spa-days" to relax, her face will look less drawn or "pinched." when she smiles & thanks you, she'll be the most beautiful woman you ever met. ...Read more
