The medical team’s serious concern regarding the high number of children born with autism is increasing. This has led to various studies to determine the main cause of the increasing condition of autism.
The concern that occurs is related to the increasing number of autism, so the main cause must be known. Until it was carried out by a joint research team of UW Medicine, where UW Bothell and Seattle’s Children Research Institute analyzed the data, namely 2,644 who had taken part in the American study.
In this study it was stated that exposure to scanning machines, especially excessive utrasound in early pregnancy / first trimester of pregnancy, will cause a high risk level for the birth of children with autism. This is a serious concern to reduce the risk of people with autism.
Even in the research conducted, the diversity of symptoms in children with autism is closely related to other causes, namely the existence of genetic variations that affect people with autism. This association was strongest accounting for 7 percent of the variability or diversity that affects people with autism.
Even the leader of the research team found three analysis models used for his team. Where the variability that occurs in children with autism, first found a genetic susceptibility associated with autistic disorders. Second, there is a relationship between stressors from outside the sufferer. Third, which affects children with a certain period of time related to stressors.
Even from several types of stressors that trigger autism, one of them is the Webb team who discovered the types of stressors that are found to trigger autism. One of them is Webb’s team found excessive exposure to ultrasound during early pregnancy, namely gestational age 0-9 months.
However, there are many reasons why many children are born with autism. This condition is influenced by differences from each that are directly related to the condition of autism. In fact, this is as reported by Medical Xpress which states that having autism is related to different causes.
Even if it is associated with guidelines from the FDA, namely the Food and Drug Administration, that ultrasound is only used for very urgent medical purposes. So that use that is too often is not recommended when pregnancy is still in the early age / first trimester. It is advisable to consult a doctor to determine the condition of the pregnancy and the timing of the scan.
The time recommended for scanning during pregnancy, 2-4 times during pregnancy. As for conditions that require special attention from the medical team, the scan should only be done according to the doctor’s advice. Even from time to time when a medical procedure is needed. It also takes into account many things including the age of the womb.
Meanwhile, various other studies have found other causes of autism, such as the diet of pregnant women, experiencing psychological pressure, wrong parenting, and slow antipathy in autism therapy. Even the cause of autism can also be due to high lead levels and use of cosmetics during pregnancy.
Thus the active role of pregnant women in pregnancy checkups is needed. Check and consult a doctor to find out pregnancy planning. Especially those related to testing viruses / bacteria that can increase the risk of autism. It is always recommended to follow a good doctor’s instructions.
Especially with recent research which states that autism is associated with excessive exposure to scans in early pregnancy which can disrupt the condition of the mother and the fetus. So that the use of this scan must be in accordance with the doctor’s instructions and be related to a gestational age that is safe for scanning.
