Hey how are you doing today. I am reaching out to you, yes you reading this. If you are over the age of 18 and you are born with some type of x and y variation. There are some amazing ways to get involved on the XXY research side. Since I found out at 9 years old I have never attended a study until recently signing up for the one I am posting about. It’s time I get involved on a deeper level it is time to give back and help the medical field learn more about people who are being born with Klinefelter syndrome, XXY and the rest of the x and y variations.
I do understand that many of us are afraid regarding XXY research. Maybe it’s the feeling of “I don’t want to be a lab rat” or “I don’t trust our government” or even the “I have never done this before and the anxiety we all have might take control” Whatever the reason might be let’s now look at the positive side of what xxy research programs can do for all of us and the generations to come. I personally am attending this study below in August of 2018 and I am really looking forward to it.
The positive about getting involved is that we help the medical community better understand how these extra chromosomes happen during conceiving. To help create more options for Testosterone Replacement Therapy. To better educate doctors and the medical field on how to diagnose and treat. Helping the education, schools, teachers and special education understand these rare conditions. Bringing the diagnoses to a higher number, the current is 35% find out in their lifetime and 65% will never know. We get to learn more about our own bodies and our own conditions, helping us throughout life. If more people find out earlier on about their condition and diagnosis I believe more people will donate, more people will open up and the community will grow at a faster rate. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Below is all of the information you will need.
