Dual Marker Test In Pregnancy
Double Marker Screening Test
A double marker test is a specific blood test performed in pregnant women to detect any chromosomal malformations in the fetus. This test is usually recommended for women above 35 years of age because they are at high risk of giving birth to a baby with chromosomal abnormalities. However, even younger women who are less than 35 years of age are also asked to undergo this test during pregnancy.
Why this double marker test is performed?
The double marker test is a proven test for detecting any abnormalities or any issues present. This test finds out the abnormalities in the chromosomes of the fetus. The abnormalities in the chromosomes may lead to serious conditions like the growth of the baby may be affected. With the help of this double marker test disorders such as Edwards syndrome, Down’s syndrome can be detected. Edward’s syndrome is a condition that leads to severe developmental delays due to chromosome 18 abnormality. Down’s syndrome is the delay of growth, development, and intelligence due to chromosome 21 disorder. This test is usually conducted after 8 weeks to 14 weeks of pregnancy. This test is generally recommended in women above 35 years of age or in women with a family history of birth defects or if the first child has birth defects or has a history of Type-1 diabetes (insulin-dependent).
