I'm afraid that this is impossible to answer because some people with this condition lead a normal life with no effects. Some worsen slowly over many years and some worsen quickly.

I think it's a good thing that your condition is known at such a young age, so you can be monitored. Serious implications happen much more where people have this condition and it isn't known about. With the right treatments at the right time, and the amount of new knowledge about this condition, I think you have a pretty good prognosis.
