Are there any associated conditions that someone with the Fragile X premutation is at risk for?

People who are premutation carriers are at risk for developing FXTAS, FXPOI or other conditions such as high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, hypothyroidism, chronic pain, and sleep apnea.

Recently, the International Fragile X Premutation Registry was created to facilitate and encourage Fragile X premutation research, including future medication and non-medication treatment and intervention studies that could positively impact your quality of life. Fragile X premutation-associated conditions include Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) and Fragile X-associated primary ovarian insufficiency (FXPOI).
