People with Down's syndrome are predisposed to certain medical conditions, including cardiac disease, thyroid disorders, hearing impairment, sleep disorders, visual problems, coeliac disease and Alzheimer's disease - most of which are treatable.
We encourage all adults with Down's syndrome to get an annual health check. Take a look at the information we have put together to help adults with Down's syndrome get the most out of their annual health check. If you have any questions about health issues, please call our Helpline on 0208 614 5100 or 0333 121 2300 (not premium rate)*.
*Our new 0333 number is charged at national rate for both mobile and landline calls, unlike 0845 numbers which can be expensive from a mobile, your calls are included within your minute allowance with no premium.
