When she was born, nothing indicated that she would have any future problems.
Four months later, it was clear that her childhood would not be easy. It was then that Chahat Kumar of Punjab from India began gaining a frightening amount of weight. Her insatiable appetite led to the fact that, at the age of just eight months old, she weighed as much as an average four-year-old (almost 39.5 lb). The girl’s parents have no idea how to reign in her constant need to eat.
Local doctors were dealing with this type of difficult case for the first time. They were unable to help the grossly obese child. They don’t have an answer to the question of why this toddler has such a big appetite. Chahat’s parents have their hands tied. They cannot afford to treat their daughter abroad. To make matters worse this isn’t the only problem plaguing this Indian family.
There is something much worse, a rare affliction that the young one suffers from. You’ll read about it, however, on the next page.
