Hi lybrate-user, There is developmental delay in all spheres (motor, adaptive and social) in children with Down’s syndrome and most common genetic cause of learning disability & mental retardation. As there is no curative therapy, counseling has a central role to play in the management. Having Down's syndrome child can be challenging at times. But with help professional support, most people are able to have healthy, active and more independent lives. There are many children who have done wonders and hence take it as chanllenge and support your kid to develop and learn.

I'm getting married soon. I'm 33 years old. So I fear about the risk of Down's syndrome. I read that taking folic acid early would reduce the risk. I want to know if that is true and the dosage of folic acid to be taken.

First c, down syndrome is a rare genetic disorder. During pregnancy folic acid along with DHA helps to prevent down syndrome. So you can take it after consulting Dr.

Down Syndrome - Signs & Symptoms You Must Not Ignore!

Down Syndrome - Signs & Symptoms You Must Not Ignore!

Down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder that is caused by the presence of an extra chromosome. A genetic condition, it causes physical and cognitive impairments and can lead to disabilities and increase the risk of a number of health problems.

Causes
Each cell in our body contains 23 pairs of chromosomes where one chromosome in the pair comes from the mother and the other comes from the father. But in the individuals with Down syndrome, the chromosome 21 has an extra copy. This means that there are three copies instead of the usual two. The reasons behind this genetic abnormality remains unknown as of yet, but there are a few risk factors that might increase the chances of the condition.

  • Women who are older than 35 years of age have a higher risk of their children being born with Down syndrome.
  • If a woman has a child with Down syndrome, then chances are that the next child might be born with the condition as well.
  • Though uncommon, Down syndrome has been seen to have been passed from parent to child.

Symptoms
Children born with Down syndrome exhibit certain characteristic symptoms which include flattened facial features, a short neck and eyes that slant upwards. Ears that are atypically shaped and muscles that lack tone are also symptoms of Down syndrome. Physical growth and development of the child are also hindered by the condition. A child with Down syndrome might also display social and mental disabilities that include a short span for attention, a lack of judgment and issues with impulse control.

Complications
Down syndrome can lead to a number of medical complications that include but are not limited to visual impairment, leukemia, chronic constipation, dementia, hypothyroidism and Alzheimer’s disease in the later stages of life.

Homeopathic Treatments
Homeopathic treatment methods of Down syndrome focus on the development and improvement of the behavioral and cognitive abilities of a child with Down syndrome. The treatment that is usually prescribed includes homeopathic medicines and bio-neural supplements that help remedy the disorder. These also reduce the effects that the condition might exert on the physical growth and intellectual development of the child.

A child with Down syndrome might find it difficult to communicate and recognize objects and people. Homeopathic treatment can help remedy these shortcomings. Homeopathic treatment for Down syndrome should be initiated at the earliest possible in order to help the child with behavioral and physical development. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello doctor I have done my quadruple screen test it shows The calculated risk for Trisomy 21 is above the cut off which represents an increased risk. My nt scan is gud there is not any problem. My doctor suggested me to do amniocentesis test. I'm so tensed that can I go for this test or not. What will I do I just dont understand.

Hello lybrate-user, thank you for the question. If the risk in quadruple test is above the cut off for Trisomy21, then I would suggest a confirmatory test for the same. The confirmation can be done either by Amniocentesis or by Noninvasive prenatal test (NIPt). Amniocentesis is the USG guided procedure of drawing amniotic fluid which has fetal cells. These fetal cells can be examined for fetal chromosomes. It is a 100% test. The procedure related risk of miscarriage is very less- about 1 in 500. There is not much pain. NIPT confirms Down Syndrome up to 99.6%.it is done from mother's blood and hence no risk of procedure related miscarriage. But I think if your doctor has recommended Amniocentesis, then you should go for it. We Routine ly do it. It's a 10 mins procedure and is important for confirming the Trisomy21. I hope this is helpful.
