In brief: Proper eval & assist

Turner syndrome patients have specific added needs for early evaluation of the heart, aorta & kidneys to see if asymptomatic defects are present so they can be addressed before they cause problems.
Monitor school performance with early assistance when learning issues arise.Assessment in preadolescence by a hormone dr so growth & pubertal features can be assisted. Counseling in teen yrs for pbs.

In brief: Most are essential

For most women affected by turners syndrome, the treatment options will vary depending on the degree (or severity) of ts.
Many cases hardly require any intervention but for the most part, hormonal replacement is needed such as growth hormone ( if growth plates still unfused) and estrogen replacement if ovarian function is at a struggle. Eye, hearing and cardiac exams are needed as well.

In brief: Endocrinologist

A patient's age determines whether a pediatric endocrinologist or adult endocrinologist gets involved.
Treatment options and other monitoring are different between the age groups. Other specialists may also need to get involved, but either start with endocrinology or genetics.
