Down syndrome / Birth Defects - Genetic

Down syndrome is a genetic condition that arises due to an extra copy of all or part of chromosome 21. Though Down syndrome cannot be cured and comes with a host of medical issues, people with the syndrome learn several skills during their lifetime. With proper medication, diet, training and care, many of them are capable of becoming independent and leading a normal life. With early health intervention, some individuals with Down syndrome are now capable of going for jobs and fending for themselves.

Physio therapy,speech therapy, occupational and behavioural therapies are needed to speed up the mile stones in the growth of DS children. Homoeo treatment also helps in improving their brain related functioning.DS children will be very affectionate and very cute. Treatment/therapies should be started as early as possible to get better results. Hope, a day will come, when Down Syndrome in children and adults will be permanently cured. Nothing is impossible in this fast developing world because of the technological innovations made possbile by computers etc.
