An eight-month-old baby from Punjab is dealing with major health issues because she is overweight. Chahat Kumar weighs 17 kg and the doctors are perplexed.
Her eating habits are not normal – she eats a lot for a baby her age. Chahat’s skin is so hard that the doctors could not take blood samples using syringes so they can’t even diagnose the problem she is dealing with, and because of her weight she can’t even breathe or sleep properly.
Chahat’s mother had lost her first baby and is not ready to lose another one due to obesity.
“Both parents are growing increasingly concerned about their daughter’s health, and have no clue as to what is causing her ‘insatiable appetite,” reports barcroft.TV.
Her mother said, “She doesn’t eat like a normal kid. She keeps eating all the time. If we don’t give her anything to eat, she starts crying. She cries to go out but her weight is too much and we are not able to pick her up. So we only take her to nearby places.”
Like every parent, Chahat’s parents also worry about her future and they want her to live a happy and healthy life. Hopefully, the doctors will find a way to help Chahat.
