Children with Down syndrome have a slightly flattened face with upward, slanting eyes. They are usually of less than average height. Their necks are often straighter and wider…/longer, and they tend to have speech problems. In addition, they are also very caring and lovable people most of the time.
Well, first, if your already pregnant, you can get a test and they will be able to tell you if you have a child with Down Syndrome or not. But, if you just gave birth to the b…aby, the doctors would do some tests on the baby that could take several tests, but, you could tell just by looking at your child because people with Down Syndrome have a deformed face. But, their are several other disabilities that involve chromosomes that deform the face, so that's why the doctors do the testing to make sure.
Down Syndrome is present at birth, since it is the result of a genetic condition. It is merely a matter of your doctors recognizing it. In some children it is harder to recogn…ize than in others.. Ask you doctor if you think it might be present.
there are too many too list...girl you better look on google
Unless she has translocation (inherited) Down syndrome than No, she more than likely Won't.
Down syndrome is an abnormality that occurs within a persons chromosomes. Sperm and eggs both have 23 chromosomes each. When combined to make a baby the new entity has 46 chro…mosomes. If there is an abnormality (which you cannot control) the baby will be born with 47 chromosomes, which will give it Down's syndrome. It is just one of those things you can not prevent in life. You just have to hope for the best. Down's syndrome is more common if the parents are older, so staring your family younger will reduce the risk. There are tests which will tell you if the child you are carrying has Down's syndrome, but they are not without risk to the child. You could use the information to prepare yourself for the needs of the child or to think about adoption (or abortion if that is an option for you). Many people choose not to test, due to the risk to the child.
Yes it does, it affects the facial structures. In addition those who have down syndrome will have short necks, short arms, short legs, short toes, short fingers, and their joi…nts show hyper flexibility.
No, there is not. Down syndrome is unique in its characteristics and scientific identification. 2nd Answer: Sort of . . . there are other 'mistakes' that occur for the same …reason that Down syndrome occurs, and many of them are named. The thing is, though, that the body has such a high range of tolerance of all its hormones, enzymes, and so forth, that these other 'mistakes' never show up to be recognized. Down syndrome, as per the first answer, is indeed unique in its characteristics.
when the baby has no crease between the nose and mouth
Down syndrome is a genetic condition that not only affects the brain but also affects physical appearance because of the genes affected by the disease. Sorry I don't know how …exactly the genes are distorted. But they affect physical appearence.
Who really cares if a child looks normal or not!? God created us all the same, and we shouldn't treat each other differently just because we have a little disability! Calling …a disabled child "dumb" or a "retard" is not going to change their life and is only going to hurt their feelings, so why bother?! But the truth is, a child with Down Syndrome is not going to look regular without some major surgery. They will need facial reconstruction, though. But even if you choose to have plastic surgery performed on your child with Down Syndrome or not, just remember to love and take care of him or her. It's the best gift you can give your child, and with the right therapy and attention, your child (and you!) can learn to live a normal, neurotypical life.
First few people with Waardenburg syndrome have all the physical characteristics. That being said, the physical characteristics can include brilliantly blue or green eyes, u…nmatching eyes. Eyes of different colors or one of the eyes with 2 colors. Medterm heterochromatic iridae two different colored eyes. H. Iridis. Eyebrows thick, dark, tendency to grow together (unibrower) Flat nose bridge. Eyes looking somewhat wide apart. (WS1) early greying hair as young as 12. Born with white forelock. Of course the most important sign is being born with varying degrees of deafness either unitaral or bilateral.
It is very unlikely that two people with Down Syndrome are able to conceive. Most males with Down Syndrome are infertile, with only 3 recorded instances of a down syndrome …father being able to conceive. Most females with Down Syndrome have both conception and birthing problems, leading to a high miscarriage rates for those who are able to conceive. Females with down syndrome have much lower fertility rates.
more likely than a "regular" person because its already in thier blood
No they have a specific gene that gives them immunity to this. It is now being reasearched also Asians have a very low rate of this occurence.
The only maternal characteristic to show a strong enough association to imply any causation is advanced maternal age, some sources reporting >35 years and some up to >45 years….
