Down syndrome does have a greater risk of health problems than other children. This is because it is closely related to abnormalities in the heart, sensitivity to infections and abnormalities in the shape of the brain. Some of the other disorders of Down syndrome are a short intestine, swelling of the body, no fluid or nerve damage for people with Down syndrome.
Down syndrome is found that normally humans have 23 chromosomes, of which a total of 46 chromosomes. Whereas in children with Down syndrome, chromosome 21 is more than one, so that the pair becomes three so that they have chromosome 47 which is called trisomy 21. This is what causes slow physical growth and also weak Down syndrome sufferers. The risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease in adulthood is greater than that of other adults, even some parents worry that they will not be perfectly healthy.
You do not need to be discouraged that research conducted in Central America which developed a pill containing antioxidants which can improve the quality of life of children with Down syndrome was found. Pills made from extracts and ingredients such as oranges and given during the fetus.
Research conducted from the Boston University Team found that there is a high content of antioxidants that help in forming the brain in the womb. Even this test was carried out on experimental animals, mice, which showed positive things. The discovery of a positive gene repair was used in a mouse version of Down syndrome model that was given antioxidants to pregnant mice.
The background is from studies showing that fetuses born with Down syndrome will have unique abnormalities. Even the measured levels of oxidative stress would have an impact on brain development. This is one of the basics behind the antioxidant therapy to fight oxidative stress killing brain cells in the fetus.
Even a child with Down syndrome (ADS) looks slower than other children does not mean that ADS children do not have the ability. In fact, there are also many ADS children who excel, so they don’t need to be considered strange. ADS is not a disease but someone who is born with Down syndrome, a genetic disorder that must be lived a lifetime.
Although it sounds simple, it takes a long time for the pill to be ready for use. The high antioxidants from fruits and vegetables are used in supporting this pill. It is hoped that the research that is being carried out can continue to improve the quality of life of children with Down syndrome so as to provide assistance to them to keep giving their best.
Down syndrome warning will be carried out on March 21, where this warning is expected to the public to know and be able to consider them part of children who have abilities that can be proud of and have privileges like other normal children. Thus making everyone aware of being able to give love to those who have genetic disorders such as Down syndrome. This is what underlies the existence of a pill that is being developed to hopefully get a quality of life for those with Down syndrome.
