Hi doctor,

I am 13 weeks and four days pregnant. My NT scan is 1.25, and my double marker report is trisomy 21 is 1:28 and trisomy 18, 13 is 1:41. But they have miscalculated my age. My age is 34 years, but they have written 33 years. Please help me. I have called them they are saying 1 one-year difference is not an issue.

I read your query and understand your concern. I have gone through the report, and it is normal. There is nothing to worry about. The difference of one year is fine. It would not affect the test or diagnosis.

Keep yourself hydrated, take at least three liters of water per day,

Continue iron and folic acid tablets. Have more green leafy vegetables and fruits in your diet,

Thank you for consulting me.
