Down's Syndrome Medical Conditions

Those with Down's Syndrome are more likely than most people to get a range of Medical Conditions:

  • Heart problems, which may need surgery, affect up to half of people with Down's Syndrome.
  • Eye problems, such as Cataracts affect half of children with Down's Syndrome by the age of four.
  • Hearing problems, ranging from mild to complete deafness, affect over half of people with Down's Syndrome.
  • Thyroid problems, including low or high levels of the thyroid hormones, affect one in 10 people with Down's Syndrome.
  • Poor Immunity is common, so people with Down's Syndrome are prone to chest infections, coughs and colds.
  • Problems with the digestive system may cause diarrhoea or constipation; babies may have feeding problems and may not gain weight normally.
  • Dementia affects people with Down's Syndrome at an earlier age: four out of ten 50-59 year olds with Down's Syndrome have Dementia.
