The KS Story
You are not alone
AN INFORMATIVE GUIDE & FURTHER STUDY
The KS Story is the culmination of twelve years ongoing study and an emotional journey through the workings of the congenital chromosome condition Klinefelter’s Syndrome (KS).
The book was created primarily as a conduit to respected support groups, medical specialists and research units, with a chapter devoted to further study, including a comprehensive support address and online section and a selection of books, research papers, medical journals and scientific magazines.
The book also offers a glimpse into the various aspects of Klinefelter’s Syndrome; showing how it affects individuals and those who love, care and treat them.
The KS Story has been compiled by a person with Klinefelter’s Syndrome (karyotype: 47,XXY), from reputable medical, research and support group sources, and with the help and support of several UK and international scientists in the fields of biology, cytogenetics, endocrinology, neuroscience and sexology.
To balance the overwhelming amount of data there is a degree of comic relief in the writing, with a sprinkling of cartoons.
All that is asked, is that you please put aside any preconceived ideas or stereotypes and view the guide with a respectful and open mind.
