Hello XXXXXX,

Thanks for your query.

Ideally ANEUPLOIDY scan should have been done between 11-14 weeks. As you are 21 weeks now, you need to do a ANOMALY scan now. It's a very important scan to rule out any anomalies.

As you have strong family history of diabetes, kindly get GTT-Glucose tolerance test to rule out gestational diabetes. And continue the same iron and calcium supplementation.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.

Regards,
Dr Arif

1) I would like to know triple screening is one of the anomaly test right?

I has detected the risk of down syndrome and the result is 1:0000

Did i need to take the anomaly scan again.

I have done GTT test it is normal.

Hello XXXXXX,

Thanks for your followup question.

1) No triple screening is not a anomaly test. It's a screening test to detect GENETIC problems like DOWNS babies. And your risk very very less; high risk is 1 in 250.
2) Yes, you have to take anomaly scan, which I told you earlier that it is very very important one.
3) As your GTT is normal, no need to worry right now. Your treating doctor will advise you regarding this.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.

Regards,
Dr Arif
