Down Syndrome Effects
Down Syndrome can have many effects, it is very different for each person and needs a different type of down syndrome treatment. Some will grow themselves to live completely (independently), while others will need more help in caring for themselves. People with Down syndrome symptoms have some physical characteristics in common. For example, they often have a flat nose and small ears. Their mental abilities will vary, but most solve small issues with thinking, logic, and understanding. They will learn and take full advantage of their new skills, but reaching important goals such as walking, talking and developing social skills may take more time.
Causes Of Down Syndrome
In all cases of reproduction, both parents pass their gene to their children. These genes are taken in the chromosomes. When the cells of the child develop, then each cell receives 23 pairs of chromosomes for the total of 46 cells. Half chromosomes are from the mother, and half are from the father.
In Children with Down syndrome, one of the chromosomes is not completely different. The child ends with three copies or an additional partial copy of chromosome 21 instead of two. This extra chromosome creates problems in the brain and physical development. Children need proper down syndrome treatment as soon as possible.
There are also certain risk factors involved with Down syndrome where some parents might have a greater chance of having a baby with Down syndrome. Take for example, a woman having babies in her older age have more chances to conceive a child with Down syndrome as older eggs have a greater risk of improper chromosome division. In rare cases, either of the parents can also pass the genetic translocation for Down syndrome to their children. Parents with one child with Down syndrome or those with a translocation themselves are at an increased risk of having another child with Down syndrome.
Types Of Down Syndrome
- Trisomy 21 : Trisomy 21 means that each cell has an additional copy of chromosome 21. This is most common form of Down syndrome.
- Mosaicism : Mosaicism occurs when a child is born with some extra chromosomes, but not all of them are in the cells. People with mosaic down syndrome have fewer symptoms than trisomy 21.
- Translocation : In this type of down syndrome, children have only one extra part of chromosome 21. There are 46 total chromosomes. However, one of them is an extra piece of chromosome 21 attached. We provide best foreign therapies for all these types of down syndrome treatment.

The test lines up all the chromosomes and show the extra chromosome 21, if present. In unborn babies, routine tests done on mother during pregnancy can check for Down syndrome symptoms in child. If confirmation comes, more invasive tests can then be done for confirmation.
