In addition to reproductive counseling, the transition to adult treatment of Turner syndrome includes management of atherogenic cardiovascular risk factors (., hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia); calcium and vitamin D supplementation to prevent osteoporosis; and ongoing sex hormone therapy. A baseline dual energy x-ray absorptiometry scan to evaluate bone mineral density is recommended at the first adult visit. Adult women should continue to receive high-quality echocardiography or MRI of the aorta every five to 10 years to assess the need for surgical correction of severe aortic root dilatation (which occurs over time in 8 to 42 percent of patients).
THANK YOU!! I fucking irks me to no end when I see someone spewing off nostalgic vitriol about how the Edwardian era and the 1950s was some sort of heaven on earth for those of the penis-posessing variety. IT WAS NOT. In fact it was far from it. Want to talk about gender roles? How about the MALE gender roles. Men were regulated to cannon fodder who were obligated to lay down their lives in the trenches of France and Belgium during WW1 because their respective European emperors told them to because of a bitchfest that was simmering with the other European emperors. Ditto for the Vietnam war 50 years later. And a few years earlier they were obligated to freeze to death in the Atlantic ocean as the Titanic sank under them because the life of a man was apparently less valuble than that of a woman or child.
