Three overweight kids are eating non-stop due to a mysterious eating disorder; i.e., they never feel full.
Due to overeating, they have grown obese and their alarming weights have become a serious health risk.
Worried over the mysterious disorder that had inflicted their children, parents Rameshbhai and Pragnaben Nandwana from Guharat, India have frantically appealed to medical authorities, especially pediatricians to help.
The parents said they can’t stop their children from eating which is highly dangerous. Hence, the kids’ weight are increasing at an alarming rate. And this the parents are worried about.
Weighing 51 kilos, four-old-daughter Amisha is three times heavier than an average child.
Amisha’s older sister, Yogita, at the age of 5, weighs 33.5 kilos – which is a third heavier than a kid of her age, while Brother Harsh, 18 months old, appears not to feel the harshness of obesity at infantile stage.
Due to their obesity, the overweight kids have breathing difficulty, especially while asleep.
At birth, nothing extra-ordinary was found in them. But as they started taking in solid food, the parents felt something was wrong as they were eating like adults; swallowing up 5 to 6 roti flat breads in one sitting.
‘They cry when we didn’t feed them,” the parents said.
The kids were reported to finish off massive amount of rice, flat bread, and dhal.
The kids are suffering and they are at health risk, the father said.
‘They’re now having trouble – they can’t run and play as normal kids do and can’t even get up from their seats,” he added as per Daily Mail report.
The parents are expressing hopes their children will soon be cured.
Rameshbhai said: ‘I have high hopes that treatment will make my children healthy.’
Assistant Professor of Paediatrics at Civil Hospital, Doctor Charul Purani found out that the kids have a lot of respiratory problems which make breathing hard for them.
At Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, the kids underwent a series of tests and blood samples were taken and tested as part of an international study into the genetic causes of child obesity.
