Down Syndrome is usually suspected after birth as a result of the baby’s appearance. There are many physical characteristics which form the basis for suspecting an infant has Down syndrome.
Many of these characteristics are found, to some extent, in the general population of individuals who do not have Down syndrome. Hence, if Down syndrome is suspected, careful evaluation is required to confirm the diagnosis. Down Syndrome is usually caused by an error in cell division called non-disjunction.
However, two other types of chromosomal abnormalities, mosaicism and translocation, are also implicated in Down syndrome – although to a much lesser extent. Regardless of the type of Down syndrome which a person may have, all people with Down syndrome have an extra, critical portion of the number 21 chromosome present in all, or some, of their cells. This additional genetic material alters the course of development and causes the characteristics associated with the syndrome. Whatever the case is, treatment for Down syndrome is important for everyone.
Treatment for Down syndrome
Because it is a problem with the chromosomes, there are no cures for Down syndrome. Therefore, treatment for Down syndrome focuses on controlling symptoms and any medical conditions that result because of the condition.
Treatment for Down syndrome can include:
· Regular checkups and screening
· Counseling and support
Other ways to detect and treatment for Down syndrome
It is normal to experience a wide range of emotions when your baby is born with Down syndrome. Even if you learned about condition of your baby while you were pregnant, the first few weeks after birth often are very difficult as you learn to cope with the diagnosis.
A confirmed diagnosis of Down syndrome requires a karyotype test. This test usually is done on a sample of your baby’s blood if it is done after birth. It may take 2 to 3 weeks to get the complete results of this test. This waiting period can be extremely difficult, especially if earlier test results were uncertain and your baby has only subtle characteristics of Down syndrome.
As treatment for Down syndrome, your newborn with Down syndrome will have regular checkups and various tests during the first month. These tests are used to monitor his or her condition and to help health professionals look for early signs of common diseases associated with Down syndrome and other health conditions. These checkups also are a good time to begin discussing issues of concern about your newborn.
