A 25-year old Indian woman married to a 28-year old tailor
is scared she might lose her 10-months old baby especially with doctors not
piling on the pounds at four months old. She now weighs 2st 13lbs. Her mom is
worried because she lost her second child to obesity before having Aliya, and
now Aliya is growing more than normal.
Her weight is that of a 6-year old girl, she said soberly.
She was also quick to say she is the most loved baby in the village and
everyone loved to touch her, just that most of them can’t lift her up. The
couple have a 5-year old son (their first child) who lives a healthy life.
of morbid obesity or even a hormonal imbalance. We hope something could be done
