Top 2 Attention Problems Causes

  1. 1.Klinefelter Syndrome

    Klinefelter syndrome is a genetic condition that results when a boy is born with an extra copy of the X chromosome. Klinefelter syndrome is a common genetic condition affecting males. Klinefelter syndrome adversely affects testicular growth, and this can result in smaller than normal testicles.

    You should visit your primary care physician, where he or she can perform hormone tests to understand what is going on and genetic testing to identify whether there is an extra chromosome.

  2. 2.Adrenoleukodystrophy

    Adrenoleukodystrophy describes a family of closely related inherited disorders of fat metabolism. It is a condition that is passed down from parent to child and affects mostly males. People affected with the disease cannot break down certain large fats, which accumulate in the nervous system, adrenal gland, and testes as a result, disrupting normal activity.

    You should visit your primary care physician, who will perform a blood test to rule in the diagnosis. Since this is a genetic condition, no cure is available, but steroids can be used if the adrenal gland is not making enough of its own.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    fatigue, hearing loss, feeling confused and not making sense while talking, vomiting, general weakness
    Urgency:
