"As babies and children, XXY males may have weaker muscles and reduced strength. As they grow older, they tend to become taller than average. They may have less muscle control and coordination than other boys their age.”
"During puberty, the physical traits of the syndrome become more evident; because these boys do not produce as much testosterone as other boys, they have a less muscular body, less facial and body hair, and broader hips. As teens, XXY males may have larger breasts, weaker bones, and a lower energy level than other boys.”
No wonder I’m not that furry…. and I been thinking for years I had arthritis and chronic fatigue syndrome.
"Affected males are often infertile, or may have reduced fertility. Advanced reproductive assistance is sometimes possible.”
Sounds like me and a certain mad genius I know….
"XXY males are also more likely than other men to have certain health problems, which typically affect females, such as autoimmune disorders, breast cancer, venous thromboembolic disease, and osteoporosis. In contrast to these potentially increased risks, it is currently thought that rare X-linked recessive conditions occur less frequently in XXY males than in normal XY males, since these conditions are transmitted by genes on the X chromosome, and people with two X chromosomes are typically only carriers rather than affected by these X-linked recessive conditions.’
Fuck! Osteoperosis? I’m a fat, tall bastard and my bones been hurting me my whole life!!! OH! My fucking back!
