Excess weight, at times, can be a much more serious problem than just a feature of appearance.
In fact, too many extra pounds seriously threaten health and even life.
However, in the case of the boy we want to tell you about, even the doctors are unable to help.
Misael Caldoño Abreu was born in Brazil.
From birth, the baby showed an enviable appetite: Misael constantly wanted to eat, and it seems that he was never full.
During the first month of life, the baby gained 3 kg of weight. Over time, the pace did not slow down at all.
By the age of five, the boy weighed 80 kg – almost like an adult man.
Misael was examined by the best doctors in the country, who came to the conclusion that he had a rare genetic feature – Prader-Willi syndrome.
The feature is poorly understood, as it is extremely rare. In children with this syndrome, there is a tendency to be overweight and a violation of mental development is manifested.
The saddest thing is that the doctors do not know how to help the boy.
Working with a psychologist and food restrictions do not help. Misael was prescribed walking, but he just can’t walk for long.
Parents only hope that there will be specialists from other countries who can somehow help the baby, as the weight becomes dangerous for him.
Misael intermittently stops breathing while sleeping, which could end badly if no effective treatment is found.
