I was given a risk of 1:56000 for downs when I was initially given a 1:5 for downs with NHS screening. That was the highest risk I had. So yes, it does give a much better idea of the actual risk. I had NIFTY test and although the clinic got these numbers my final written report only stated "low" risk but they told me the actual numbers verbally.
Hi, my score is not high risk from nhs test, it is 1:4000 for downs and 1:100000 for other things that they test. I am not highly worried because i've been told that this is a very good score and I should not worry. I am 36 and have 2 other children, one born when I 30 and the other when I was 33. They risk scores were significantly less. Because we have 2 other children I found myself really worried about the test result. My questions, Is Nipt more acurate than nhs test for downs? What do the nipt risk scores look like? I read that it can lot go lower than 1:10000. Is it true?
