Babies Born to Older Dads May Have a Higher Risk of Health Problems

Just four decades ago, only 4 percent of infants were born to fathers over the age of 40. Nowadays, that number has crept up to 10 percent. This shift was seen across the United States amongst different races, education levels, and locations.

Babies born to older fathers, says that born babies will be more susceptible to health problems including preterm birth, low birth weight, seizures and breathing problems. Many of the health issues associated with “geriatric pregnancies,” such as low infant birth weight, gestational diabetes, higher odds of preterm birth and high blood pressure for the mother by which it affects the infant development and it may also lead to compilations.

According to the recent studies, they suggest that being a father later in life which leads to be associated with higher risks in genetic abnormalities, offspring of autism and mental problems. Children born to men aged 45 and over had a 14% greater risk of premature birth, low birth weight and had a 10% higher risk of needing breathing assistance and a 28% higher chance of being admitted to neonatal intensive care when compared with babies who born to younger fathers. Further assessment showed that once a dad hits age 35, there’s a slight increase in birth risks overall. Women who is carrying the child of a man aged 55 years or older have a 34 per cent higher odds of gestational diabetes.

After accounting for things like the mother’s age and the parents’ health and demographic information, the researchers noticed an association between paternal age and likelihood of both child and maternal health problems. Significant associations began to surface around age 45, and the data suggest that the older the father, the higher the risks.

How parents can recognize Autism early?

Autism is a Neurodevelopmental condition which has become more prevalent these days which includes impairments in social interaction and developmental language and communication skills combined with rigid, repetitive behaviors. It has been found that 1 in 68 children could have a diagnosis of autism.

Signs of Autism:
  • Avoidance of eye contact
  • Persistent preference for solitude
  • Resistance to minor changes in routine or surroundings
  • Restricted interests
  •  Difficulty understanding other people’s feelings
  • Delayed language development
  • Persistent repetition of words or phrases (echolalia)
  • Repetitive behaviors (flapping, rocking, spinning, etc.)

Causes of Autism:

Most scientists have believed that it has caused mostly by genetic factors. There is reason that genes play a major role in the development of autism and it has been found that identical twins are more likely to both be affected than twins who are fraternal (not genetically identical).

When a pregnant woman is in habituated intake of drugs or chemicals, her child is more likely to be autistic. Research suggests that it may arise due to the abnormalities in parts of the brain that interpret sensory input and process language.

Autistic behavior is caused by:
  •  Tuberous sclerosis
  •  Encephalitis
  • Rubella (German measles) in the pregnant mother
  •  Untreated phenylketonuria (PKU)
  • Fragile X syndrome

Some of the potential causes of autism are environmental toxins, pesticides and heavy metals such as mercury. Heavy metals are certainly more commonly observed in the environment now than they were in the past.

Treatment for Autism:

There are no “cures” for autism, but therapies and other treatment can feel them to be better from their symptoms

Many treatment approaches involve therapies such as:
  • Speech therapy
  • Behavioral therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Play therapy

Diet to be focused:
An autism diet may instead focus on whole foods, such as:
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Fish
  • Lots of water
  • Unsaturated fats
  • Lean poultry

Some studies have suggested that diet can help to improve symptoms of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a condition like autism.
