Know The Trisomy Conditions And Challenges To Support Awareness

Trisomy is a chromosomal disorder that involves a number of human genetic abnormalities like birth defects, intellectual disabilities, characteristic facial features due to an extra chromosome present.  Though there are more people suffering from this genetic disorder, the understanding about this, is very poor among the people. Since March is recognized as Trisomy Awareness Month, it is right time to raise awareness about the cause, evaluation and treatment options, with customized silicone wristbands.  You can customize these products at amazingwristbands.com – a leading provider of custom silicone accessories.

Know the Trisomy Conditions:

What is Trisomy? Normally, all humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes in most of their cells totaling 46.  Normally in reproduction, the egg cell of the female and the sperm cell of the male start out with the usual number of 46 chromosomes. However, in some cases, a third chromosome is produced during the development of the embryo that means the child has 47 instead of 46 chromosomes. Children who have this extra chromosome, face many types of developmental, intellectual disabilities and physical problems.

The most common types of trisomy are:

  • Down syndrome (Trisomy 21) - causes a distinct facial appearance, relatively short arms and legs, intellectual disability and developmental delays. Some may face thyroid or heart disease problems.
  • Edward syndrome (Trisomy 18) – birth defects in important organs like kidneys, ureters, heart. Causes low birth weight, cleft lip or cleft palate. Malformations of the hands and feet and also sex organs.
  • Patau syndrome (Trisomy 13) - causes severe intellectual disability and physical defects.

How to diagnose and prevent?

It can be diagnosed by conducting prenatal tests such as maternal serum screening, amniocentesis, non-invasive prenatal testing.  Though presently there is no cure, it can be prevented to some extent before birth itself by performing a genetic testing. In this method, a genetic diagnosis is done by removing a single cell from a developing embryo, get it analyzed for the correct number of chromosomes. If any extra chromosome is noticed, that embryo is not transferred to avoid by having a child with trisomy.

Support to Create Awareness:

More clinical research is needed to prevent this chromosomal, genetic disorder. For this, it is important to support both awareness and funding for further research.  March is dedicated as Awareness Month mainly to spread messages about Trisomy, diagnosis, treatment, and also an opportunity to help patients and their families cope up with the condition.  Support by donating funds to research foundations for better treatment.
