Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
I am sorry to hear about your concern. If you were asking regarding Dementia, often following diagnosis the average life expectancy can by about 10 years. Downs Syndrome indeed has a slightly reduced life expectancy compared to those who have not. However the Dementia doesn't necessarily mean this would cause a faster deterioration than the Downs Syndrome.
