My son seems to show more indicators than my daughter. My daughter had a trach at birth and wore it until she was 2-1/2 years old. She had bilateral tubes in her ears x 3. Her vision is poor but corrected with glasses. My son had airway issues but did not need a trach. He had bilat tubes in his ears x 3. Lost his vision in one eye in 1st grade and had preventative surgery in good eye in 1st grade. Lost his hearing at birth and has wore hearing aids bilateraly since he was 3. Recently underwent additional palate surgery, leg surgery and eye surgery. Does there seem to be higher instances with males vs. females. Are the males affected more than females. Do they seem to acquire more symptoms than females. What do the statistics show young vs 30 -40 year olds? Or is it not so much as young vs. older patients but that they are underdiagnoised at a younger age? How would an adult go about getting the correct diagnoises?
