Some of the health concerns with Down Syndrome are:

*Low muscle tone. This causes the child to reach developmental milestones later than kids without Down Syndrome.

*Almost half of the children born with Down Syndrome will be born with Congenital Heart defects.

*Children with Down Syndrome are at an increased risk of having pulmonary hypertension...an issue that damages the lungs.
