Hi My name is Matt and I am 47,XXY Klinefelter Syndrome, bellow I have listed from a website to teach you my friends and family about what I go through on a daily basis but some of these symptoms I don’t have so ill have in brackets after the symptom a yes or a no & maybe a little explanation How common is Klinefelter's syndrome? Between 1 in 500 and 1 in 1,000 boys are born with KS. What are the symptoms of Klinefelter's syndrome? KS is usually not noticed until you go through puberty. Puberty may be late or incomplete if you have KS. Sometimes the condition may only be diagnosed if you are investigated for infertility as an adult. The typical features of KS in an adult are: Small testes. (yes but that does not mean I have small genitals a lot of people when they look up my syndrome they assume that I have a small penis and frankly that upsets me that people are that shallow) Decreased facial hair compared to a usual male. (yes I can not grow a beard properly) Gynaecomastia (some breast tissue development). (no I do not have man boobs lol) Decreased pubic hair compared to a usual male. (yes and I love the fact that I have hardly any body hair) A tall, thin body with disproportionately long arms and legs. ( No I am short 5'6") Obesity - this may cause a thicker waistline but it is often partially disguised by wider than normal hips. (No I have a normal male body shape) Children and adolescents with KS may also have: A delay in the age of first walking. (yes I started walking very late) Dyspraxia (which causes co-ordination problems). (Yes as a child I couldn’t catch a ball) Speech and language delay or difficulties. (No) Attention problems. (yes) Mild learning disabilities. (Yes) Dyslexia or reading problems. (No) Behavioural problems - boys tend to be shy and have low self-confidence; they may appear to be immature when compared to their peers. (yes as a child not as an adult) In adulthood, in addition to the main typical features: You may also have problems getting an erection and have a low libido (sex drive). (No I have a high Sex Drive) Anxiety and depression may be a problem. (yes but Depression is caused by many other factors) 'Thin bones' (osteoporosis) may develop in young or middle age rather than the usual older age for this condition. (Yes I have osteopenia) You may also be less muscular than other men. (yes) Most men who are 47, XXY have normal intelligence. However, your intelligence may be affected if you have a higher number of X chromosomes. (ha-ha I found this one quite funny so are they saying the women gene X is dumb) Almost all men who are 47, XXY will be infertile. (Yes)
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/secrets-of-the-x-chromosome-robin-ball The sequence of DNA that we inherit from our parents encodes directions for making our cells and giving us specific traits. Identical twins have the same DNA sequence, so how can one twin end up with a genetic disorder while the other twin does not? Robin Ball explains how the secret lies in X chromosome inactivation.

( http://www.abnova.com ) - Klinefelter syndrome, with the karyotype 47,XXY, is one of the commonest types of congenital chromosomal disorder in males. With an incidence of 0.1% to 0.2% of newborn male infants, it often causes hypogonadism and infertility. Although with different severity, most patients have normal lifespan as general public. Here we present a brief introduction to the common knowledge of Klinefelter syndrome. More videos at Abnova http://www.abnova.com
