Mental retardation - gynecomastia - obesity X-linked refers to a form of intellectual disability that is characterized mainly by below-average mental ability, enlarged male breasts, and excess body fat. Individuals with this form of intellectual disability often have problems with physical movements of many parts of the body. Symptoms of this form of intellectual disability are caused by defects on the X chromosome, meaning males are more prone to having this form of intellectual disability. Like other individuals with intellectual disability, an individual with this condition often has problems with reasoning and solving problems, as well as performing day-to-day tasks. The condition is often diagnosed during childhood. Doctors diagnose this form of intellectual disability if increased breast size or excess body fat is observed. Signs like walking and talking late, slow mastering of basic tasks, and having difficulty remembering things may also suggest this condition in children. Treatment is based on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. Patients can undergo surgery to reduce breast size. Doctors would also often put patients on a weight loss program, involving exercise, dietary and lifestyle changes to combat obesity. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by intellectual disability.
