Hello sir, My friend just delivered a baby girl but the child specialist is doubting the baby with down syndrome. Will the baby be normal if under treatment.

If baby is just delivered then it is not possible to say if baby has down syndrome. Many times atypical facial features raises the doubt. Diagnosis can be confirmed after Specialized test, known as Karyotyping. Also few tests done on mother before delivery of a baby will help in this case. Down syndrome happens due to some fault in genes. Baby borns with different features. There is no medicine to cure it. Once baby becomes old enough then according to its abilities, he can be given occupational therapy so that baby can carry out routine work independently. They can be given education in special schools. There are many local and national and international support groups. If diagnosis is confirmed then parents may join one of the Down syndrome support group.

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.

डाउन सिंड्रोम के लक्षण कारण और इलाज - Down Syndrome Ke Lakshan, Karan Aur Ilaaj!

डाउन सिंड्रोम के लक्षण कारण और इलाज - Down Syndrome Ke Lakshan, Karan Aur Ilaaj!

डाउन सिंड्रोम क्रोमोसोम के कारण होने वाले एक आनुवांशिक समस्या है. गर्भ में भ्रूण को एक कोशिका में कुल 46 गुणसूत्र यानि क्रोमोसोम मिलते हैं जिसमें से 23 गुणसूत्र माता से व 23 गुणसूत्र पिता से प्राप्त होते हैं. पर कभी-कभी भ्रूण या शिशु को एक अतिरिक्त गुणसूत्र क्रोमोसोम 21 मिल जाता है जिस कारण उसे हरेक कोशिका में 46 के बजाय 47 गुणसूत्र हो जाते हैं. इसी स्थिति को डाउन सिंड्रोम कहते हैं. डाउन सिंड्रोम के साथ पैदा होने वाले बच्चे में चेहरा कुछ चपटा, कान छोटा या जीभ बड़ा या इसी तरह के अन्य शारीरिक अंतर देखने को मिलता है. डाउन सिंड्रोम वाले बच्चे का शारीरिक व मानसिक विकास देरी से होता है. इसके साथ ही ऐसे बच्चे को ह्रदय, आंत, श्वास संबंधी समस्या भी होती है. इस आलेख में हम डाउन सिंड्रोम के लक्षण, कारण व इलाज से संबंधित चर्चा करेंगे.

डाउन सिंड्रोम के लक्षण-
डाउन सिंड्रोम से ग्रसित अधिकांश बच्चों के मांसपेशियाँ व जोड़ ढीले व कमजोर होते हैं. सामान्य बच्चों की तुलना में डाउन सिंड्रोम से पीड़ित बच्चे के बुद्धि का स्तर भी कम रहता है व इनका शारीरिक व मानसिक विकास देरी से होता है. ऐसे बच्चे देर से बैठना, देर से चलना व देर से बोलना शुरू करते हैं. डाउन सिंड्रोम वाले बच्चे कई तरह के जन्म दोष के साथ पैदा हो सकते हैं. डाउन सिंड्रोम वाले कई बच्चे ह्रदय, श्वास या आंत से संबंधित समस्या के साथ भी पैदा होते हैं. ऐसे बच्चे में हार्ट समस्या, श्वसन समस्या, अल्जाइमर या कैंसर की समस्या भी हो सकती है. डाउन सिंड्रोम वाले बच्चे में चेहरे पर विशेष लक्षण देखने को मिलते हैं. ऐसे बच्चे में छोटा मुंह, कान छोटा, आँखों के ऊपर तिरछापन, जीभ बड़ा, चेहरा सपाट, चौड़े हाथ, छोटी उँगलियाँ इत्यादि देखने को मिलता है. ऐसे बच्चे में रीढ़ के हड्डी में विकृति भी देखने को मिलती है. कुछ बच्चे में पाचन के समस्या या किडनी की समस्या या देखने व सुनने की क्षमता भी कम पाये जाते हैं.

डाउन सिंड्रोम के कारण-
सभी बच्चे में जीन उसके माता व पिता दोनों से मिलते हैं. ये जीन उनतक गुणसूत्र के माध्यम से पहुँचते हैं. गर्भ में बच्चे को हर कोशिका में अपने माता से 23 व पिता से 23 कूल 46 गुणसूत्र मिलते हैं. पर कई बार एक गुणसूत्र ठीक से अलग नहीं हो पाते हैं और बच्चे में 2 के बजाय 3 या एक अतिरिक्त गुणसूत्र (गुणसूत्र 21) पहुँच जाते हैं. इस प्रकार इस स्थिति में इनके हर कोशिका में 46 के बजाय 47 गुणसूत्र यानि क्रोमोसोम होते है. गुणसूत्र के इसी समस्या को डाउन सिंड्रोम कहते हैं व इसी अतिरिक्त गुणसूत्र के कारण ही बच्चे कई तरह के जन्म दोष के साथ पैदा होते हैं या बच्चे का मानसिक व शारीरिक विकास सही ढंग से नहीं हो पाता है. डाउन सिंड्रोम की स्थिति क्यों होती है इसके पीछे के सही कारण स्पष्ट नहीं है.पर यह देखा जाता है कि यदि महिला देरी से गर्भधारण करती है यानि 35 वर्ष की उम्र या इसके बाद बच्चा पैदा करती है तो बच्चे में डाउन सिंड्रोम की संभावना ज्यादा होती है. इसके अलावा महिला को या उसके किसी भाई या बहन हो डाउन सिंड्रोम है तो उसके बच्चे को भी डाउन सिंड्रोम होने की संभावना रहती है. यदि महिला पहले डाउन सिंड्रोम से पीड़ित बच्चे को जन्म दी है तो उसके द्वारा आगे जन्म दिये जाने वाले बच्चे को भी डाउन सिंड्रोम होने की संभावना अधिक होती है.

डाउन सिंड्रोम का इलाज-
जब भ्रूण गर्भाशय में है तभी जाँच द्वारा यह पता लगाया जा सकता है कि बच्चे को डाउन सिंड्रोम है या नहीं. यदि जाँच से यह स्पष्ट होता है कि बच्चा डाउन सिंड्रोम से पीड़ित है तो गर्भाशय में ही इसका निदान किया जा सकता है. पर बच्चे के जन्म के बाद डाउन सिंड्रोम का कोई इलाज नहीं है. ऐसे बच्चे को प्यार व सहारा की ही जरूरत होती है. ऐसे बच्चे के माँ-बाप को चिंता नहीं करनी चाहिए व इस बीमारी के लिए किसी को दोष नहीं देना चाहिए. माँ-बाप को परेशान होने के बजाय बच्चे के साथ प्यार से पेश होना चाहिए और उनको आगे बढ़ने में सहारा बनना चाहिए. डाउन सिंड्रोम से पीड़ित बच्चे व वयस्क भी आज अच्छी जिंदगी जी रहे हैं. ऐसे लोगों को आगे बढ़ने के लिए बस प्यार और सहारा की जरूरत होती है. डाउन सिंड्रोम से पीड़ित बच्चे भी अन्य बच्चे की तरह सारा काम कर सकते हैं बस उन्हें माँ-बाप व अपने परिवेश से थोड़ा सपोर्ट की जरूरत होती है. ऐसे बच्चों को स्पीच थेरोपी, फिजियोथेरोपी व अन्य तरीकों से सहायता की जा सकती है.

Down Syndrome - How It Should Be Dealt With?

Down Syndrome - How It Should Be Dealt With?

Down Syndrome is a genetic disorder resulting from chromosomal aberration. Usually, a person is born with 23 pairs of chromosomes (46 chromosomes in total). In the case of a Down Syndrome, there is a total of 47 chromosomes (an extra complete or partial chromosome appearing in the 21st pair). This extra chromosome is the main wrecker in chief that triggers the behavioral and developmental alterations characteristic of Down Syndrome.

Depending on the distribution of the chromosome during cell division, Down Syndrome may be triggered by three conditions

  • Trisomy 21: One of the most common causes of Down Syndrome, Trisomy 21 is characterized by the presence of an extra chromosome in chromosome 21.
  • Translocation Down syndrome: As the name suggests, here a part of the chromosome 21 translocates itself to some other chromosome. There will be no trisomy on chromosome 21. However, there will be extra genetic material resulting from the chromosome containing the translocated portion of chromosome 21.
  • Mosaic Down Syndrome: This is a rare condition where some cells will have 46 chromosomes (23 pairs) while few others will have 47 chromosomes (trisomy 21).

Symptoms characteristic of Down Syndrome
Some of the symptoms synonymous to Down Syndrome include

  • The face appears flattened with a short mouth and a protruding tongue.
  • The ears, neck, arms, and legs are shorter than usual.
  • Children and adults with Down Syndrome usually have a short stature.
  • The muscles also lack proper tone.
  • Children with Down Syndrome are often found to have impaired cognitive ability. The condition also affects the memory, both short, as well as long-term.

Managing a child with Down Syndrome
No parent would ever want their child to suffer from Down Syndrome. Along with the medications and therapies, as a parent, you should also be prepared to manage the situation well.

  • The situation is by no means easy for you, but if you get weak or panic, things will only go from bad to worse. Thus, you need to be strong.
  • Be in constant touch with the attending physician to know the progress of your child.
  • If your child is still very young, get them enrolled in the special enhancement programs. These programs play a significant role in improving the language, motor movements, as well as developing the various self-help skills in the Down Syndrome children.
  • Connect with families dealing with identical situations. Discussing your problems with them or learning about theirs can help in better management.
  • Your concern for the child is understood but do not snatch their independence. Give them the freedom they deserve. They might make mistakes, but it will help build their confidence.
  • If the situation demands, get your child admitted to schools which are specially designed for such children.
  • Do not keep your child confined within the four walls of the home. Take them outside. Let them interact with people. Indulge in family outings and get-togethers.
  • The situation may be difficult but not impossible. Have faith and do what is in your hands.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My sisters double marker shows positive. Downs syndrome 1: 198 possibility. She is 29 years old. Doctors have told her to undergo CVS and amniocentesis tests. All other features of the foetus are normal. Please suggest if the baby would be normal or there is 50-50 chances of downs syndrome. Nobody else in the family has this. 2 months aho she had a spontaneous miscarriage plus she has hypothyroid which is normal now. She is now four months pregnant.

It is very hard to tell if the child will have down's syndrome or not. It is only time that will tell and for that matter of fact, it is only chance and please think positively about the situation. The chances are very less and even if it turns out to be so, downs kids are trainable. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

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.
