Hi,
How are you? The outlook for Klinefelter syndrome is good and many men lead a full and active life with normal lifespan. However, there are many factors to consider that can affect this outlook such as the risks for medical conditions like  autoimmune diseases(type 1 diabetes, lupus, and hypothyroidism); obesity; osteoporosis; lymphoma and others. At this point, it is difficult to say which conditions will be present in the future.  It is important that careful and consistent monitoring of his health and that there is early treatment of any problems that may occur. Talk to his doctor about this for proper evaluation. Take care and best regards.
