Types of Birth defects
Posted in 2014

There are two main categories of birth defects.
Structural Birth Defects
Structural birth defects are related to a problem with the structure of body parts. These can include:
  • Cleft lip or cleft palate
  • Heart defects, such as missing or misshaped valves
  • Abnormal limbs, such as a clubfoot
  • Neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, and problems related to the growth and development of the brain and spinal cord
Functional or Developmental Birth Defects
Functional or developmental birth defects are related to a problem with how a body part or body system works or functions. These problems can include:
  • Nervous system or brain problems.These include intellectual and developmental disabilities, behavioral disorders, speech or language difficulties, seizures, and movement trouble. Some examples of birth defects that affect the nervous system include Down syndrome, Prader-willi syndrome  and Fragile X syndrome.
  • Sensory problems. Examples include hearing loss and visual problems, such as blindness or deafness.
  • Metabolic disorders. These involve problems with certain chemical reactions in the body, such as conditions that limit the body’s ability to rid itself of waste materials or harmful chemicals. Two common metabolic disorders are phenylketonuria and hypothyroidism.
  • Degenerative disorders. These are conditions that might not be obvious at birth but cause one or more aspects of health to steadily get worse. Examples of degenerative disorders are muscular dystrophy and X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy, which leads to problems of the nervous system and the adrenal glands and was the subject of the movie "Lorenzo’s Oil."
Some birth defects affect many parts or processes in the body, leading to both structural and functional problems.
This information focuses on structural birth defects, their causes, their prevention, and their treatment. Functional/developmental birth defects are addressed more completely in the intellectual and developmental disabilities content.
My advise
1....I have seen number of birth defects since 43 years.  Their parents are very sad.     2...I believe in PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.  Every couple can prevent birth defects by taking proper pre-cautions.  3... Your positive thing, your life style etc...will avoid maximum birth defects.   4...You can avoid all kinds of birth defects with Oxygen, Water and Healthy food.   5.... Now wait to welcome your healthy child
