Good health: important advice for summer

The Adult Down Syndrome Clinic has recently posted some advice particularly relevant for people with Down syndrome as we in the southern hemisphere come into summer:

  • Eye conditions and sunglasses ... Eye conditions are more common in people with Down syndrome ... Sunglasses may help prevent cataracts and glaucoma
  • Hydration  ... Based on patient interviews, physical exams and review of lab tests, it is clear many of our patients don't drink enough fluids ...
Timely advice for those signing up for Step UP! for Down Syndrome 2014
