10-Month-Old Baby Weighs 62 Pounds Due To Mysterious Weight Gain Condition

Posted on

While it is unclear what is causing the baby’s extreme weight, doctors believe Luis could be suffering from Prader-Willi Syndrome. This is a genetic condition that leaves children constantly hungry and prone to massive over eating, often leading to obesity and type 2 diabetes.

However, Lius’ mother said the toddler doesn’t beg for food and eats a normal amount for a child his age.

Lius’ family is currently facing several difficulties raising the child as the doctors have considered giving him hormonal treatment, which include injections that cost $555 per shot, despite his father earning just $200 per month, Daily Mail reported.

The report said the family created a Facebook page and opened a bank account for people to donate money for Luis Manuel’s medical care.
