Guidelines include recommendations for hormone therapy, surgery and long-term care for all ages.

New guidelines from the Endocrine Society call for close and continued collaboration between endocrinologists and mental health professionals for the treatment of transsexual people.

“The twentieth century marked the beginning of a social awakening for men and women whose bodies imprisoned them in the wrong gender,” a task force of Endocrine Society-appointed experts wrote.
