11:33 am
match the gender they choose. >> as young as 3? >> as young as 3. >> this pediatrician has treated hundreds of tr ha ns kids at the head of the children's center at ucsf hospital. >> we see the kids ñireappear wh a body that matches their gender identify. >> reporter: this doctor and an international team will release new guidelines for transkids ani for the first time will favor early transition and allow hormone therapy for kids under 16. >> this couple pact children worldwide. >> i feel it would be malpractice to withhold that kind of treatment. >> reporter: before jack started his transition, he says he couldn't even stand his own re. >> exwhen you look in this mirror now, what do you see? >> me. i sigh me. >> i used to have a girl and now i have a boy. >> juliana is jack's mother. >> what do you see when you look at old photos of jack? >> that's hasf, yeah.

and i think that is i think the hardest part for me. >> as his mom, do you have doubts? >> i do, i do, but i can only do what i know right now is the right thing to do. >> reporter: still, juliana and leading doctors worry that the medicines that block puberty can weaken bones and cause other unknown side effects. >> i think it's putting a lot on the shoulders of the children. >> reporter: this pediatrician is the chief of medical genetics at ucla. you think far more children are transitioning now than maybe should? >> that's correct. children say a lot of things. if they decide if i behave like a girl therefore i am a girl that's not necessarily true. >> reporter: telling a child to wait to transition, sort of the modern day version telling a gay person that it's just a phase?
11:35 am
>> i don't think so. people are telling me that these boys who behave like girls are in fact girls inside. so i'm saying where is the girl? is there a brainñr difference? are their genes different? i still have not seen that. >> so which kid transition and when? no one knows for sure. so that's about to change with your study. >> we hope so. >> reporter: the first of its kind research is being done in seattle where 300 transkids from around the kid were studied and tracked for 20 years. do you feel like you're a little bit a boy? >> a small bit. >> reporter: 7-year-old maya is part of the study. she was born brodie, but began identifying as a girl at just 3. who is brodie? >> no one. >> reporter: doesn't exist anymore? who is maya?
11:36 am
>> me? >> reporter: other studies show transpeople are more likely to commit suicide, but three years into the study she found kids who were allowed to traps its socially aren't any more depressed than non-transkids. >> i would have a transdaughter than a dead son. >> reporter: megan is maya's daughter. >> to have her say, mom, i'm really a girl. at first, you know, it was kind of -- it's hard to swallow, but really it's this child's happiness. >> there you go. >> reporter: back at the hospital, jack's life is about to change. >> it went really well. >> i didn't feel anything. >> reporter: soon after jack does start to feel something. >> i'm real, really happy. >> reporter: effects of the implant are largely reversible, but for now jack is saying good-bye to sophia. >> bye-bye. >> bye-bye, estrogen. >> bye-bye. >> bye, estrogen. >> reporter: doctors recommend
11:37 am
kids get off that puberty blocker by the time they are 14 for health reasons. that means in two years jack will have to decide whether to start taking testosterone to blend in more as a boy or get off the drug to restart puberty as a girl. clinical guidelines for how to treat transkids haven't been updated in nearly a decade, but the new recommendation will likely go into effect by the end of this year. with the investigative unit, i'm bigad shaban. >> certainly a fascinating conversation. thanks very much. if you have a tip for our investigative unit give us a call at 888-996-tips. always send an e-mail to theunit@nbc bay area president come. fire crews are on the scene of a house fire at summer court and we can tell you that at least part of the home is gutted, but the fire appears to be out. still no word yet on a cause or whether there are any injuries, but the fire was at some point throwing up a lot of smoke, creating a distraction for drivers, but now the fire is
