Downs Syndrome Derek hemel

Downs Syndrome: A wide range of developmental delays and physical disabilities caused by a genetic disorder.
Downs Syndrome cant be cured but treatment may help. Can last for a lifetime. Requires a medical diagnosis. Life expectancy of a person with downs in 1983 was 25.
There are three different types of downs syndrome. Trisomy 21 (95), Translocation (4), and mosaicism (1).
About one in every 700 babies have downs syndrome. That's about 6000 babies per year. The younger the mother the greater chance of your baby getting downs because of the high fertility rate.
Physical traits of downs are low muscle tone, upward slant to the eyes, and a small deep crease in the center of the palm.
