Transgender resources

Transgender resources

I recently attended a transgender medical lecture. Excellent resources abounded.  Here are the ones I thought may be most helpful.

https://Jackturban.com Dr. Turban is a UCSF child and adolescent psychiatrist. He has a fabulous website regarding adolescent care.  He reviews media articles on transgender issues. He has copious research showing benefit of offering adolescents gender-affirming care.

When transgender issues occur in adolescents, your primary care may do your primary care AND you will often be referred to pediatric endocrinology.  Pediatric endocrinology physicians can help with medication management and watch their growth. This portion of their care can be done by telehealth if needed.

Real Mama Bears is a fabulous website to help families address transgender issues.

TrevorLifeline 1-866-488-7386 is a hotline 24/7 to help decrease suicide in transgender youth.

Want to know about how to bind? Which bras to buy? Look at Fenway Health.

Transcare.ucsf.edu has guidelines for the primary care and gender-affirming care of transgender and gender nonbinary people. This done by Dr. Deutsch.

WPATH World Professional Association for Transgender Health website has excellent resources and a link to their society guidelines

I hope this helpsā€¦
