      Not trying to be an ass but why don’t kids like Darcy just be castrated. Wouldn’t that help them in some ways as they grow up.

          Even when I feel hungry and my stomach hurts I can withstand it it doesn’t hurt to me I could probably fast for a long time

            That fat fucking ginger needs all the ridicule she can get so that maybe someday she will get it through her fat fucking skull that she needs to lose weight.

              Drug companies will withhold life changing and life savings drugs and try to go every other route and give other meds thay either dont help at all or only mask certain ailments.
              Its RIDICULOUS.
              but they do it cuz if they give everything BUT the drug/medicine needed they can make much more money than just giving the ONE drug that can actually solve or help the problem the most.
              Its a sick sick world

                It’s a business not a charity. Be more angry with governments throwing away tax dollars for stupid unnecessary shit rather than people’s medical needs.

              I think maybe some people with PW should get free gastric bypass opp, shrinking the stomach, it may help in just a few of them.

                I agree with you, but there may be one which is stronger minded and still may benefit from surgery,

                Theyd probably still eat too much as it's not about their stomachs
                It's a brain thing. I can see this going the route where they get the surgery and they still eat too much and end up injuring themselves

                                            I think this is a case in which the raw food diet vegan would actually be appropriate. With the thermic effect of raw fruits and veggies and the low calorie density these kids might be able to eat to a more satisfying level.

                                              @Dan Thanks Dan. I appreciate your perspective. I am not actually vegan myself. I have Epilepsy and follow the Modified Atkins protocol. I was just trying to brainstorm dietary ideas that might somehow mitigate the suffering, if only a little. I felt that maybe foods with a very low calorie density (broccoli, spinach, celery, these types of things whether cooked or raw) might help sufferers to feel more full/satisfied. I am so sorry if I offended you. Praying for the wellness of your daughter and family.

                                              From someone with a daughter with this terrible affliction, I beg you to not just write ridiculous comments pushing your vegan agenda. It is so much more complex than diet. I have studied nutrition for twenty five years and can tell you for a fact that the raw vegan diet is one of the most dangerous diets to follow long term.

                                            Cameron’s family is very strong & happy. It’s probably the best case scenario for a PWS child.

                                            Darcy isn’t so lucky. Not 100% sure, but it doesn’t seem like his mom has a partner & she’s got other kids, too. Of the 3 kids we get to know best in this program, Darcy is the most profoundly affected intellectually & emotionally. Mom loves him - obviously - but she’s also chronically stressed. Without the needed medication, their situation will only get worse. I don’t know NZ’s healthcare system (American here, sorry!), but honestly? Darcy might be better off in a group home/assisted living setting with multiple people to help him. A serious change needs to be made for his sake & the sake of his family. How can mom properly raise her other children when Darcy requires almost all of her attention? All of their lives & even the way their house is set up (food under lock & key, etc.) revolves around Darcy & his needs. They deserve a normal(ish) childhood, too!

                                            As for Francie? Her independence is admirable & she’s actually quite bright. Still, she can’t control her appetite sufficiently & taking up smoking as a way of “growing up” is tragic! In the course of this program, her weight gain was obvious. I don’t see how she’ll be able to live alone for the rest of her life.

They have a lower metabolism so even eating healthier probably won’t help. Even exercising doesn’t seem to help. They will also find a way to eat things such as sticks of butter, lard, anything they can get their hands on.

He knows all his behavior goes unchecked or even REWARDED no matter how horrible. Children learn quickly how to manipulate adults - especially when everyone they come in contact with walks on eggshells.
