Parent Info Announce Links TGMD Our Mission: To conduct and disseminate basic scientific research to better understand the complexity of individuals with Down syndrome and to utilize this knowledge to drive clinical services. We describe complexity as the dynamic interactions of biological and psychological factors that contribute to the overall quality of the individual's motor behavior. As we learn more about the relevant factors that may alter behavior, this information is used to design and test interventions to improve the quality of functioning in people with Down syndrome. Our goal is to share this information with scientists, parents, and professionals around the world through presentations and publications of current research , discussion of review papers , and organization of seminars. As part of the University of Michigan and the Division of Kinesiology, we create interdisciplinary and collaborative learning opportunities for researchers at the undergraduate through post-doctoral levels. The ultimate outcome will be a significant increase in the number of people conducting research and scholarship related to individuals with Down syndrome, hopefully leading to meaningful development of movement, play, and sport skills.

Nutritional Supplements for Down Syndrome:
A Highly Questionable Approach
Len Leshin, M.D.
Down syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of a third 21st chromosome. It occurs once in every 600 to 700 births, making it the most common genetic disorder. Its common features include poor muscle tone, short stature, a small nose with flat nasal bridge, small skin folds on the inner corner of the eyes (epicanthal folds), dry skin, immune-system suppression, developmental delays, speech difficulties, and mental retardation. Even before Down syndrome was found to be caused by a genetic abnormality, nutritional therapies were proposed, usually focusing on one or two items. Mixtures that included vitamins, hormones and enzymes were advocated in the 1960s by Haboud, a German physician [1]; however, other investigators found no beneficial effect [2]. At about the same time, Henry Turkel, MD, in the United States claimed that a mixture of 48 different ingredients could improve intelligence and the appearance of children with Down syndrome [3]. No double-blind study was ever performed with Turkel's formula. Dr. Turkel administered his formula to children with Down syndrome for almost 40 years; if there had been some benefit, we should have had such evidence by now. Yet no such group of children or adults have been identified to date. In the 1980s, Ruth Harrell, MD, and associates [4] reported that supplementary vitamins and minerals and thyroid hormone improved their IQ scores, and caused "physical changes toward normal" among children with various types of mental deficiency, with the best results in three children with Down syndrome. However, the study was neither controlled nor blinded, and seven different studies during the next decade showed no positive results from Harrell's mixture. Haps Caps, another mixture of vitamins, minerals and enzymes that hit the marketplace during the 1980s, is frequently given with thyroid hormone. No study of Haps Caps has been published.

Apnea is the term used when someone stops breathing for very short periods of time. During the episode, the child will have decreased oxygenation of the blood . A 1991 study showed that 45% of children and adults with Down syndrome have obstructive sleep apnea due to several factors; the flattened midface, narrowed nasal area, low tone of the muscles of the upper airway and enlarged adenoids and/or tonsils. Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are: snoring, restless/disturbed sleep, frequent partial or total awakenings and daytime mouth breathing. Some children with OSA have odd sleep positions, often with their neck bent backwards, or even in a sitting position. Some children with OSA sweat profusely during sleep. In adults, there is an association of obesity, but that's not a common association in children. Some children will have daytime grumpiness or sleepiness. Some children may have noisy swallowing as well. Dr. Deborah Givan is trained in pulmonary at Indiana University, Texas Children's (in Houston, Tx) and at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia. She is board certified in Pediatric Pulmonology and certified in Sleep Disorders Medicine. She is a Professor of Clinical Pediatrics and directs the Children's Sleep Disorder Center at Riley Hospital. She will be presenting the symptoms, problems, and treatments of OSA so bring your questions!

Definition of Down Syndrome
Down syndrome is the most common and readily identifiable chromosomal condition associated with mental retardation. It is caused by a chromosomal abnormality: for some unexplained reason, an accident in cell development results in 47 instead of the usual 46 chromosomes. This extra chromosome changes the orderly development of the body and brain. In most cases, the diagnosis of Down syndrome is made according to results from a chromosome test administered shortly after birth. Back to the Table of Contents
Approximately 4,000 children with Down syndrome are born in the U.S. each year, or about 1 in every 800 to 1,000 live births. Although parents of any age may have child with Down syndrome, the incidence is higher for women over 35. Most common forms of the syndrome do not usually occur more than once in a family.
