Since my last post was about Prader-Willi Syndrone (PWS), I received an email asking what it is? It is a ’cause’ I believe in helping, especially children who have it, but cannot control being obese from it.
Here is a definition from MedicineNet about PWS…..
“Prader-Willi syndrome is a complex genetic condition that affects many parts of the body. In infancy, this condition is characterized by weak muscle tone (hypotonia), feeding difficulties, poor growth, and delayed development. Beginning in childhood, affected individuals develop an insatiable appetite, which leads to chronic overeating (hyperphagia) and obesity. Some people with Prader-Willi syndrome, particularly those with obesity, also develop type 2 diabetes mellitus (the most common form of diabetes).”
Please, those familiar with PWS, add more about it in the comments section so others may learn more about it…..and support the cause.
