Partial androgen insensitivity syndrome
I believe I have PAIS (Partial androgen insensitivity syndrome) the medical profession have shunned me until now. I have now been referred to an endocrinologist. Can they do anything for me at age 61?
Partial androgen insensitivity syndrome (PAIS) where testosterone still has some effect on sexual development is usually noticed at birth, and treatment usually involves counselling, hormone therapy and surgery as needed, long term counselling may also be recommended. The endocrinology referral may be to confirm diagnosis or look at other possible hormone issues and look at what else they can do to assist you. Treatment is usually started during puberty so we can only speculate that the consultant may be looking for other causes.
