down syndrome is a genetic condition that causes delays in physical and The most important fact to know about individuals with down syndrome is that
There are 3 chromosomal patterns that result in Down syndrome
1. Trisomy 21 (nondisjunction) is caused by a faulty cell division that results in the baby having three #21 chromosomes instead of two. Prior to or at conception, a pair of #21 chromosomes in either the egg or the sperm fails to separate properly. The extra chromosome is replicated in every cell of the body. Ninety five percent of all people with Down syndrome have Trisomy 21. 2. Translocation accounts for only 3% to 4% of all cases. In translocation a part of chromosome #21 breaks off during cell division and attaches to another chromosome. The presence of an extra piece of the 21st chromosome causes the characteristics of Down syndrome. Unlike Trisomy 21, which is the result of random error in the early cell division, translocation may indicate that one of the parents is carrying chromosomal material that is arranged in an unusual manner. Genetic counseling can be sought to ascertain more information when these circumstances occur. 3. Mosaicism

The Links to Diet
Read my
Many researchers and support groups state that birth defects and genetic disorders, especially connective tissue disorders such as Marfan syndrome osteogenesis imperfecta and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome , can't possibly be cured through diet because they are inherited genetic disorders. This conclusion is invalid simply because many birth defects and inherited genetic disorders have been found to be improved, or even cured, through diet. The old school of thinking that a birth defect or inherited disorder had to be caused by a single gene is no longer widely held in medical circles. The breakthrough concept in research is that many birth defects and inherited disorders are influenced by both genes and environmental factors, especially nutrition. Genes may make people susceptible to certain defects and disorders, but they are often only a part of the picture. "Genes are not necessarily destiny. They are influenced by the chemistry of what we consume." - article on

Contents of this page: Alternative names Trisomy 21 Definition Return to top Down syndrome is a chromosome abnormality, usually due to an extra copy of the 21st chromosome. This syndrome usually, although not always, results in mental retardation and other conditions. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top In most cases, Down syndrome is caused by an extra chromosome 21. It is the most common single cause of human birth defects, with an occurrence in 1 out of every 660 births. Children with Down syndrome have a widely recognized characteristic appearance. The head may be smaller than normal (microcephaly) and abnormally shaped. Prominent facial features include a flattened nose, protruding tongue, and upward slanting eyes. The inner corner of the eyes may have a rounded fold of skin (epicanthal fold) rather than coming to a point. The hands are short and broad with short fingers and often have a single crease in the palm (simian crease). Retardation of normal growth and development is typical and most affected children never reach average adult height. Congenital heart defects are frequently present in Down syndrome children. Early mortality is often a result of cardiac abnormalities. Gastrointestinal abnormalities such as

Features a young student who has down syndrome, class experiences, history, and education.
Welcome to our project about Down syndrome. We decided to pick this topic because one of the members of our group -Elijah - has Down syndrome. We wanted to learn more about what causes it. People with Down syndrome can be very different from each other. Each individual has their own personality and talents.People who have Down syndrome learn better with loving homes, special education and medical care.Many adults with Down syndrome hold jobs, live semi independently and enjoy social and recreational activities in their communities. We hope the information we have here keeps you from being scared about getting to know someone with Down syndrome. We learned that people who have Down syndrome are not very different from us.
