Weight Management for Adults with Down Syndrome

  • Involving supervisors at work and school on the treatment plan
  • Preparing lunch at home
  • Never using food as a reward
  • Introducing a daily exercise routine that is appropriate to the person’s interests and skills

If there is no underlying medical condition contributing to an individual with Down syndrome’s weight, then he or she can use the same basic strategies as anyone else would to lose weight: excercise, portion control and healthy food choices.
