How does the age of the mother affect the chances of a baby with Down syndrome?
*I am not sure*
age affects the baby, sometimes, because as the women grows older, the eggs she produces also get older. and the older the egg is, more chances of the baby to have down syndrome. hope it helps:)
The chances of getting down syndrome depends on the mothers age. The younger the mother, the higher the chance. The older the mother, the smaller the chance.
On average, about 1 in every 800 babies born have down syndrome, but this rises dramatically with the age of the mother, to around 1 in every 100 babies born to mothers that are 40 years old.
== == No, there is no cure -- as of yet. Down syndrome is caused by having three of Chromosome 21 instead of the healthy two. There is no way to remove an extra chromosome, especially not from every cell in the whole body! The older the mother is, the more likely this is to occur. If the mother is 40 or older when she conceives, her chances of having a baby with Down skyrocket… Read More
Down syndrome affects a person from Birth til Death
How does the age of the mother affect the likelihood of her giving birth to a baby with Down syndrome?
See the Related link for a table that lists a woman's age in conjunction with the statistical likelihood of her giving birth to a baby with Down syndrome. Our users comment: I believe I read that, at my age (32), I have 1:750 chance of having a child with Down syndrome. I was one of those 750 women... the likelihood increases as the mother ages, especially after age 30. (See the Related question on the… Read More
It can affect your IQ, most People with Down Syndrome have mild to moderately lower IQs than the average person.
Yes, Down syndrome affects physical development. Body structures and growth patterns are altered in Down syndrome.
No. Nothing the mother or father does or doesn't do causes their baby to have Down syndrome. Down syndrome happens at conception & the exact cause is unknown.
No, Down syndrome is a genetic disorder, and occurs because of the presence of an extra chromosome, not due to smoking. The chances of a women giving birth to a Down syndrome baby increases with age.
If you have a brother or a sister with Down syndrome does this increase the chances of giving birth to a child with Down syndrome?
no if the one of the parents have it and it is genetic then yes. but in this case no because it is not genetic
That would mean that the mother is the one with Down syndrome, since men with Down syndrome are sterile. There is a 50% chance that the child will have Down syndrome and 50% chance that child will be born without.
Down Syndrome affects all races. Down Syndrome does not affect all races evenly its affects Mexicans more than any one else. Hispanics have larger numbers of live births suffering from Down Syndrome because they do not terminate their DS pregnancies, like other races do.
A person who has Down syndrome is born like that; it is not something that you acquire with age.
Down syndrome can effect someone by making someones body have visual disorders and retardation.
it didn't.....she just had a slower time processing things...all down syndrome people do...
Most of the organs.
It Could Do.
Yes, Also your mother does.
You're husband may not necessarily have the down syndrome allele. Also the only way you would have a special needs baby is if you also have the recessive (down syndrome) allele. Here are the chances: If neither of you have the recessive (down syndrome) allele - 0% If one of you have the recessive allele - 0% If you both have the recessive allele - 25% The chances are pretty low but it is not… Read More
Yes, i believe that children with Down Syndrome should be with their mothers. No one can ever take the place of a mother and love the child the way a mother does.
it aprrox. basically has a basis according to my calculations
Down Syndrome is found across all races of people. There is no specific ethinic group that it does not affect.
The reason that older age of the mother will increase the risk of Down syndrome in babies is because older eggs have more of a chance of chromosomes not dividing properly.
Yes. Having children over the age of 35 can increase the chance of Down Syndrome.
It is acceptable to say that someone has Down Syndrome, although it may not be necessary to say it since the syndrome does have a characteristic affect on facial features which can be observed.
It is found in all places the same.
Unless the brother has translocation DS (not likely), then the risk of his siblings having a baby of their own with DS are the same as any other person their age.
For the United States, estimated as the fraction of people in the population with the syndrome, ~1/5500.
i love Jesus best of all.
No, it's the age of the mother that matters.
One child in 40 will have downs syndrome at age 45
It affects everything in their life. They will be born with a deformed face, with many health problems (heart defects are common in children with Down Syndrome) and it affects their ability to LEARN. Nevertheless, every child with Down Syndrome should be given the right to learn.
If a women with Down syndrome is pregnant what would be the negatives and the positives during the pregnancy?
A pregnancy with Down Syndrome would be the same as any other pregnancy. But, there's a chance that if the mother finds out that her child has Down Syndrome by having some testing done, she might become depressed.
The majority of Down syndrome cases are not hereditary. Only in cases of Translocation Down syndrome is this then possible. These inherited cases then occur because one of the parents is a carrier. A carrier will have 45 chromosomes instead of 46 but they will have all the genetic material of a person with 46 chromosomes. Remember that in Translocation Down syndrome the extra chromosome 21 material is located on a different chromosome. A carrier… Read More
They child will be slow mentally and will need extra attention.
Anyone can but it is passed through your gene's whilst the mother is carrying the child
people that have down syndrome have 47 chromosomes they get 23 from the mother and 23 from their father they are different from others because the have a extra chromosome that make them different from others
No, not the father. But older mothers have a higher rate of bearing a child with Down syndrome. (See the Related link below.)
It does if you get turned down.
If You Are A Twin (Or Have Twins In Your Family): If you are a fraternal twin, you have a 1 in 17 Chance of having twins. If you are identical, it doesn't affect your chances, and they remain from 1 in anywhere from 38 - 90, depending on if fertility drugs are used or not. If your mother is a fraternal twin, you may have a higher than average chance of twins. If you… Read More
It just does(: it eats the baby's brain out like a zombie
After having one child with Down syndrome what is the likelihood of having another child with Down syndrome?
After having one child with Down Syndrome, the likelihood of having another is about one percent. If the first child's Down Syndrome is due to translocation trisomy 21, the likelihood of another Down Syndrome child increases. As far as researchers know at this point, Down Syndrome is not attributed to the parents' behavior prior and/or during pregnancy or any environmental factors. The incidence of Down Syndrome does rise if the mother is older than 35… Read More
Down syndrome is characterized by an extra copy of Chromosome 21. For each chromosome, there are two copies, one from the mother, and one from the father. During meiosis the number is reduced to one set of chromosomes. People with Down syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21, or part of it.
Because the average human is born with 46 chromosomes, 23 from their mother and 23 from their father. Some one with Down's syndrome is born with a 47th chromosome, that is the "Down's Syndrome".
Be a healthy and fairly young mother. Age increases the risk.
One in 1,176. I am assuming that you mean Down Syndrome? There is usually a genetic predisposition to this disease- meaning its genetic and runs in DNA. If no one in your family or his has Down Syndrome or other types of mental retardation, etc then the chances are relatively zero that your baby will have Down Syndrome. Its not going to be based on your significant other's sperm...
approximately half of the offspring of someone with Down syndrome also have the syndrome themselves
Yes it does, it affects the facial structures. In addition those who have down syndrome will have short necks, short arms, short legs, short toes, short fingers, and their joints show hyper flexibility.
If a woman had a distant relative or an ancestor with Down syndrome would it increase the chances that this woman would bear a child with Down syndrome?
I would say no. Down Syndrome is caused by an extra chromosome (extra pair of chromosome 21). If anyone has three chromosomes 21, they have Down; you can't have "latent Down" and transmit it to your children. What increases the risk for Down most is older parental age, especially maternal (>35, and especially >40). Most standard prenatal screenings now can detect Down in the fetus very early on.
== == * I did some research and learned that men with Down syndrome are usually sterile. Most women can get pregnant and have children. Since there is a high risk of Down syndrome in the baby (35%-50%), many times the pregnancy would end in a miscarriage. But many Down syndrome people have had children. * Technically yes, but it's unlikely. Fertility is greatly reduced in both males and females with Down syndrome, although there… Read More
