I'm from belgium so my english is not so good, sorry.
my daughter is 19 years old, she was born deaf, since her puberty het body and appereance changed constantly.
She looks older (a bit like werner syndrome), she is thin, thin arms and legs but bigger (rounder) belly.
She has no too much hair (very thin) and her hairline is very high, pointy nose and a small mouth, she also can't sweat.
She has kidney, thyroid gland and bowel movement problems.
other stuff:
Too much male hormones (cortison) in her kidneys, she retains water beacause of her thyroid gland and it moves all the times.
Shes allways tired, and sleeps in a very unatural body possition.
She has been in hospitals many times, everything has been checked, everything looks normal, but it doesn't work normal.
She has 2 sisters with no problems.
She is in treatment in the Genetics depertment in Leuven.
