Answer: Hii there is no surety for 100% on any report. One thing i can say is, there is a test for chromosome in which they take a fluid from you and check it for any down syndrome. But remember the false ration of such test is high. So just enjoy your pregnancy.high ratio in double marker can also be due to any placental problem.  So crusk of the matter is u need to consult a good experienced doctor to get a better overview. All the best.
Answer: No double marker is not at all reliable but if you want to ensure do nipt test its 99% accurate and if u have down syndrome issue in ur family or husband family best is amniocenthesis its 100% accurate.NIPT is blood test amniocenthesis is done taking fluid from ur belly and its risky so do only from fetal expert.
