Those who were exposed to complications during birth were at a 10 percent increased risk of developing ASD. That number rose to a 22 percent increased risk for children exposed to complications before labor began.Complications mentioned in the study include birth asphyxia, the deprivation of oxygen to the newborn during birth, and preeclampsia, a condition in pregnancy characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to other organ systems.“While there currently is no cure for ASD, early identification of children who may be at risk of developing the disorder is extremely important, as research shows that early intervention treatment services for children with ASD can greatly improve their development,” said Dr. Darios Getahun of the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research and Evaluation, lead author of the study.The study findings showed birth asphyxia and preeclampsia had the highest association with ASD. The other complications included premature separation of the placenta from the uterus, breech/transverse fetal presentation, fetal dystocia/abnormal size or position, and a prolapsed/exposed umbilical cord.ASD is classified into a group of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by impaired social interaction, communication deficits and a range of restricted and repetitive behavior patterns, according to the American Psychiatric Association.According to the latest estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in 68 children have been identified with ASD, and the disorder is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups. ASD is about 4.5 times more common among boys than girls.Kaiser Permanente said the study is part of the organization’s broader efforts to deliver transformational health research regarding autism spectrum disorder.In August 2016, a Kaiser Permanente study found that the risk of younger siblings developing an autism spectrum disorder is 14 times higher if an older sibling has ASD. In 2015, a Kaiser Permanente study found that children whose mothers developed gestational diabetes by the 26th week of pregnancy were at increased risk of developing autism later in life.The study was supported by Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit funds. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img
