What is the lifespan of men with Klinefelter syndrome?

Last Update: 07/03/2018

Lifespan of males affected by KS is almost the same as the rest of the population, with perhaps a difference of 2 to 3 years.

Males with Klinefelter syndrome can have a normal lifestyle, although they have a higher chance of suffering from other health problems, such as diabetes type 2, breast cancer, and autoimmune diseases such as lupus.
