What is the cause of too much iron in someone with Down syndrome?
One of the suppositions as to why iron might be harmful is based on the fact that people with Down syndrome have an excess amount of superoxide dismutase (SOD) in their cells, due to the extra 21st chromosome.

One doesn't "get" Down's Syndrome, it is a genetic anomaly. Predominantly, the older the mother, the more likely her child will develop Downs. Such children have similar featu…res, such as ears too low, and tend to be clumsy and intellectually challanged. They also tend to be outwardly happy, and very loving.
Down's sydrome is caused by trisomy 21, when there are three 21st chromosomes instead of the normal two.
Not sure if that is a known side effect, but I have been on Foltrin for about 2 months now for anemia, and it is giving me killer headaches. I stopped taking it and going to m…y doctor tomorrow.
No. However smoking during pregnancy can cause a number of other pregnancy complications. Women who smoke during pregnancy are at higher risk for ectopic pregnancy, miscarriag…e, preterm labor, placental abruption, and stillbirth. Babies born to mothers who smoked during pregnancy have greater risk of withdrawal symptoms, low birth weight, prematurity, lung issues, cleft lip and palate, and neurological issues due to lack of oxygen.
You cannot do anything to cause your child to have Down Syndrome, drinking,smoking etc in pregnancy does not cause this. Down is caused by a genetic oops where there is an ext…ra chromosome. It is present from the time of conception. You cannot catch Down syndrome.
The cause of Down syndrome is one of three types of abnormal cell division involving chromosome 21. All three abnormalities result in extra genetic material from chromosome 21…, which is responsible for the characteristic features and developmental problems of Down syndrome. The three genetic variations that can cause Down syndrome include: . Trisomy 21. More than 90 percent of cases of Down syndrome are caused by trisomy 21. A child with trisomy 21 has three copies of chromosome 21 - instead of the usual two copies - in all of his or her cells. This form of Down syndrome is caused by abnormal cell division during the development of the sperm cell or the egg cell. . Mosaic Down syndrome. In this rare form of Down syndrome, children have some cells with an extra copy of chromosome 21. This mosaic of normal and abnormal cells is caused by abnormal cell division after fertilization. . Translocation Down syndrome. Down syndrome can also occur when part of chromosome 21 becomes attached (translocated) onto another chromosome, before or at conception. Children with translocation Down syndrome have the usual two copies of chromosome 21, but they also have additional material from chromosome 21 stuck to the translocated chromosome. This form of Down syndrome is uncommon. There are no known behavioral or environmental factors that cause Down syndrome.
you can tell because of their face and actions. their face might have slight differences that a normal face would. for example the eyes would be closer together and their face… would be very flat. their posture would also tell.
Haemochromatosis (see Wikipedia), liver diseases,... Mostly genetic, with certain racial proclivities, but most anaemias are actually iron-loading. Most males have too much ir…on in their blood, which is a factor conducive to heart attack. Probably, in robust times, bleeding wasn't always such a bad idea. It is still done for those with haemochromatosis. The problem is that iron is stored in the body, and difficult to eliminate. Especially the more easily absorbed heme iron from diets rich in meat. Cooking acidic foods in iron pans can result in hyperferraemia (excess iron). Multi vitamin/mineral tablets for men are now made, containing no iron. One should never take iron tablets without a serum blood test; it is no more a 'wonder food' than say magnesium or calcium. There are good plant sources, and whilst soils may have too much or too little, supplementation should not normally be necessary.
Can too much iron cause cause low back pain
No, Down syndrome does not cause death per se.
down syndrome is caused by an extra chrosome 21. it is very common, and is sometimes even genetic. their may even be a chrosome error, too. allison386
Downs syndrome is caused by having 3 copies, trisomy, of chromosome21 in your DNA. This can be random, causes are often unknownalthough it is associated with increased materna…l age. Symptomsinclude characteristic facial features, varying degrees of mentalretardation/learning difficulties, a happy and sociabledisposition, increased susceptibility to certain heart conditionsand other medical conditions and many others.
