Suggestions for Adults With Klinefelter Syndrome

Although a supportive environment throughout childhood and adolescence appears to offer the greatest chance for a well adjusted adulthood, it is not too late for men diagnosed with Klinefelter syndrome during adulthood to seek help.
 
Research on Klinefelter syndrome has shown that testosterone injections begun in adulthood can be beneficial. Psychological counseling also offers the best hope of overcoming depression and other psychological problems. For referrals to endocrinologists qualified to administer testosterone, or for referrals to mental health specialists, men with Klinefelter syndrome should consult their physicians.
