Neural Tube Defect: Down Syndrome
Neural tube defects and Down syndrome are both items that can develop in a baby before it is born. However, they are not related to one another even though some prenatal screening and diagnosis tests can look for both of these items.
Research also shows that when a family has a history of neural tube defects or Down syndrome, it doesn’t increase the baby’s chances of developing the opposite condition. However, there is a chance that a family history of neural tube defects will increase the chances of neural tube defects occurring in a pregnancy.
It is also possible for a family history of Down syndrome to increase the chance that a Down syndrome baby will be born. The testing involved to find these types of conditions is something that can be conducted before the baby is born.
They are usually conducted through multiple steps of testing and allow for a percentage regarding whether the baby will have one of these defects. However, no test is 100% accurate and true diagnosis can’t be made until the baby is born. One reason that doctors suggest these types of test is so that they can be better prepared to treat the baby after it is born if it does have one of these conditions.
Neural Tube Defect: Down Syndrome,
Be careful when and how you use it
I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.
Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment
Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
