GLOBAL Medical Care Guidelines for Adults with Down Syndrome¬© 

The Global Guideline is for clinicians and addresses nine medical areas: Behavioral Health, Dementia, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, Obesity, Atlantoaxial Instability, Osteoporosis, Thyroid, and Celiac Disease. It is made up of 14 recommendations and 4 statements of good practice. Some of the recommendations align with existing guidelines in individuals without Down syndrome, and two are markedly different. There were several questions associated with the recommendations that had no published research evidence, and therefore were answered based on the clinical expertise of the authors.
