Looking for answers? We can help.
Unlike many conditions that have obvious, defined symptoms well-known to physicians and the general population, X and Y chromosome variations often affect people only subtly, with mild and mysterious symptoms that are often dismissed as normal developmental variations or individual quirks. This can delay diagnosis for years, much to the frustration of those who experience them.
Being diagnosed with a genetic condition as an adult can be a highly distressing experience. But for many people, it can also come as a profound relief. Finally, they have an answer to the questions that have simmered in their lives about feeling different, with challenges that did not seem to affect other family members or their peers.
At AXYS, we also know that a diagnosis can act as a springboard to new knowledge, new perspective, and a new resolve for you to finally obtain the support you need to make the most of your life. Whether you were diagnosed just recently or years ago and are still sorting out the implications, you can always expand your knowledge base and arm yourself with new tools and approaches to addressing your condition. Over the years, we have seen countless people find their way forward and accomplish more than they thought was possible before their diagnosis.
Toward that end, the entire AXYS community stands ready to assist you in all the ways described in this website. Whether you gain knowledge from what you read here, the conversations taking place at clinics and conferences or daily on our Facebook page, or via support from our Helpline (1‑267‑338‑4262), you can rest assured that others are available and supportive of your desire to lead a productive and rewarding life.
