Feeding and Autoimmunity in Down’s syndrome Evaluation Study (FADES)

Children with Down’s Syndrome (DS) have an increased risk of autoimmune conditions where the body’s immune system attacks its own cells, such as thyroid problems, diabetes and coeliac disease. There is some evidence that prolonged breastfeeding protects against diabetes and coeliac disease. We think that in infants with DS early feeding practices may be related to the development of autoimmunity. Children with DS may have difficulties with breastfeeding, leading to rapid introduction of formula feeds. We aim to study the association between early infant feeding, infections and the development of autoimmunity.

  • Inclusion Criteria : Babies less than 8 months old with DS.
  • Study start date : 01/07/2014
  • Study end date : 01/01/2020
