PHOTOS ! Meet 3 Year – Old Boy Who Weighs 70 kg and Can ’ t Stop Eating


Meet a three-year-old boy who apparently
weighs 70 kg and can not stop gaining weight,
Cachoeiro de Itapemirim, Espirito Santo, Brazil.
Misael weighed 2.9kg when he was born but
every month since then, he has gained
approximately 3 kilograms. The poor boy, who is
supposedly suffering from Prader–Willi syndrome,
now weighs 70kg and is struggling to
walk. Classic signs and symptoms include
constant craving for food and rapid weight gain.
Misael eats frequently and consumes large
portions and even then he still feels hungry. The
boy also has serious behavioural problems and
his parents have to hire a private taxi to
transport the boy to a local hospital..See pics

Prader–Willi syndrome symptoms include
constant craving for food and rapid weight gain
Misael weighted 2.9kg when he was born
While syndrome itself is not life threatening, the
compulsive eating and resulting weight gain can
be. That is why restricting a child’s diet is a
particularly important part of managing their
condition.
“And when we walk down the street, people stop,
want to take pictures with him, people say that
they never saw a boy this size.”
The boy also has serious behavioural problems
such as stubbornness and hysteria
According to Misael’s father, when the boy and
his parents walk down the street, people stop,
want to take pictures with him. People say that
they never saw a boy this size and want to know
how old he is, how much he weighs.
Although there is no cure for Prader-Willi
syndrome, treatment aims to manage such
symptoms as a permanent feeling of hunger,
which can easily lead to dangerous weight gain,
reduced muscle tone, learning difficulties and
behavioural problems.
