There are 3 chromosomal patterns that result in Down syndrome
1. Trisomy 21 (nondisjunction) is caused by a faulty cell division that results in the baby having three #21 chromosomes instead of two. Prior to or at conception, a pair of #21 chromosomes in either the egg or the sperm fails to separate properly. The extra chromosome is replicated in every cell of the body. Ninety five percent of all people with Down syndrome have Trisomy 21. 2. Translocation accounts for only 3% to 4% of all cases. In translocation a part of chromosome #21 breaks off during cell division and attaches to another chromosome. The presence of an extra piece of the 21st chromosome causes the characteristics of Down syndrome. Unlike Trisomy 21, which is the result of random error in the early cell division, translocation may indicate that one of the parents is carrying chromosomal material that is arranged in an unusual manner. Genetic counseling can be sought to ascertain more information when these circumstances occur. 3. Mosaicism

Welcome to Mosaic Down Syndrome on the Web. My name is Linda Beets, and I am the proud mommy of Karlee, my beautiful angel girl, born on April 27, 1999, and diagnosed with MDS. When my daughter was born, there was absolutely nothing on the Internet about MDS. I was devastated. It was because of this devastation and lack of information that this website now new parents won't ever have to experience what I did (and so many others). I (and many others) personally thank Bree Prive of NJ DesignWorks , for taking such an enthusiastic approach in creating, designing and maintaining this website. I know that this site's contents may appear "general" to many of you, but I wish I had a website such as this to go to last April, the day I found out what my daughter's diagnosis was. I do not feel alone anymore. This site continues to be updated, so do check back frequently. Thank you.

Genetic Disorders
The Links to Diet
Read my
Many researchers and support groups state that birth defects and genetic disorders, especially connective tissue disorders such as Marfan syndrome osteogenesis imperfecta and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome , can't possibly be cured through diet because they are inherited genetic disorders. This conclusion is invalid simply because many birth defects and inherited genetic disorders have been found to be improved, or even cured, through diet. The old school of thinking that a birth defect or inherited disorder had to be caused by a single gene is no longer widely held in medical circles. The breakthrough concept in research is that many birth defects and inherited disorders are influenced by both genes and environmental factors, especially nutrition. Genes may make people susceptible to certain defects and disorders, but they are often only a part of the picture. Some interesting examples and articles on the subject are listed below.

    Questions To A Parent About Us ... Site Map What is Down Syndrome?
    The chromosomes of a boy with Down Syndrome. The arrow points to the extra chromosome 21. What are chromosomes?
    Our chromosomes contain the genetic code which controls and instructs cell division, growth, and function. They are the structures inside the nucleus of living cells that contain hereditary information. A person normally has 46 chromosomes, 23 inherited from each parent. Every person has a unique genetic code (with the exception of identical twins). It is this uniqueness which makes the physical appearance of each person different. How do we get our chromosomes?
    Our chromosomes are given to us by our parents. Each parent gives us 23 chromosomes which come from the egg and sperm cells. When they combine, they produce a cell with 46 chromosomes. This cell then divides, the result being that every cell contains identical genetic material. What is Down syndrome?
    Down syndrome is caused by a person having three copies of chromosome 21 instead of two copies. This is why Down syndrome is also referred to by the name Trisomy 21. The picture above shows a genetic analysis of a person with Down syndrome. You will notice that the arrow is pointing to the set of number 21 chromosomes. Instead of a pair of chromosomes, as is found in all the other chromosomes, number 21 includes three chromosomes. It is important to understand that all of the chromosomes of this person are normal. It is the fact that there is an extra chromosome that causes Down syndrome. Every cell in a person with Down syndrome will contain 47 chromosomes (with the exception of Mosaic Down syndrome which is discussed below) instead of 46 chromosomes. There are many theories about how the extra chromosome causes the effects of Down syndrome but little is currently known. Research, however, is continuing and a breakthrough may provide possible treatments to lessen the effects.

Reprinted from down syndrome Quarterly, Volume 1, Number 2, June, 1996. HEALTHCARE GUIDELINES FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH down syndrome. Mania and down syndrome.
[Reprinted from Down Syndrome Quarterly , Volume 1, Number 2, June, 1996]
(Down Syndrome Preventive Medical Check List) Edited by William I. Cohen, M.D. for the Down Syndrome Medical Interest Group (DSMIG)* These recommendations are a thoughtful composite of the input of many experts involved in the care of people with DS. They reflect current standards and practices of health care in the United States of America. They have been designed for a wide audience: for health care professionals who are providing primary care, such as pediatricians, family physicians, internists, and geneticists, as well as specialists, nursing personnel and other allied health professionals, such as physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and audiologists. In addition to educators and early intervention providers, these guidelines are designed for parents and other caregivers to use with the professionals who participate in the care of the individual with DS. Certain recommendations are clearly supported by current scientific knowledge. This is the case for the recommendations to detect the presence of congenital heart disease, which occurs in some 50% of infants with DS. In other cases, the recommendations represent our educated guesses. Recognizing the increased frequency of thyroid dysfunction in children with DS, we continue to recommend yearly screening for hypothyroidism. However, we are uncertain as the appropriate periodicity and nature of the screening: how often, and what constitutes an adequate screening. Consequently, members of the
