Constipation is likely the most common health issue that families of a child with a diagnosis of Trisomy 18, 13 or other related disorder face. Managing your child’s bowels becomes a daily focus and parents must remain vigilant. This presentation discusses causes and effective treatments for constipation in children with Trisomy 18, Trisomy 13 or other related disorder.
As Ann Barnes, our presenter, says, “This video contains more about your bowels than you may ever have wanted to know,” and as the parent of a child with Trisomy 18, I wish I had had this information 14 years ago.
Please remember this information is not a substitute for your doctor’s advice. Any ideas that interest you should be discussed with your child’s health care provider as to the appropriateness for your child.
