: I apologize if I offended anyone in any way. I think it is a good idea to have the posting below removed.
: The statement about me stating my husband's profession after you saying I was being challenged regarding DS was very rude. I have mentioned my husband's profession on here before to someone named Dana on here. Whether you choose to believe it or not, my husband is a geneticist and nuclear medicine radiologist and works in many other fields. He is actually working on cancer reseach at the moment and a gene for Parkinson's Disease. I do trust the information he has provided me as he is very well-known for his achievements. I am sorry if the information I provided is different from the research you have done and from the doctors you have spoken too.
: To all of you who do have children with DS, I am sorry, and please follow the advice of your own physicians. I will no longer be posting as I should not really be posting newly discovered research in the first place as it could get be into trouble.
: Again, I apologize and did not mean to frighten anyone in anyway. The message I was trying to get across to people is to be more cautious before deciding on medication.
Please do not take offense to this as I am not trying to start anything else.
As a former Radiologic Technologist, of all the Radiologists I've worked with over 3 hospitals, two of which being trauma centers with at least 8 Radiologists, I have never met one that was just a Nuclear Medicine Radiologist. Most of the Rads had a specialty or favorite if you will modality, but were not just a "Mammo Rad" or CT Rad", etc. I think you have wonderful advice and have a true compassion for people on this board, but if you are going to post what your husband does, make sure it is accurate if you want to get your argument across.
