:help: poor girl.
what are her parents thinking though? :o

"We can not feed ourselves or our other two children, let alone ourselves ... when she is not fed she cries, shouts, screams and has even thrown rocks at us," her mother, Belly Bibi, said.

:rolleyes:

The mother said she had no money to take her Calcutta for treatmen, żisn´t there some social resource to help the girl? to take her to the hospital?

So Disrespectful

Regardless of the girl's health issues, responsible and intelligent parents would still be able to monitor their child's food intake. She'd likely still be overweight without treatment, but right now her life is in jeopardy as a result of their carelessness.

That would be fine if the girl didn't have an illness but she is ill and the parents are stuck with the choice of feeding her or letting her suffer. Hopefully, they will be able to get the girl help now that the story is public.

Sadly, the girl will probably feel hungry regardless of how much she eats. The main priority should be keeping her alive, healthy and mobile. You can't tell me she's not already suffering at that size, helping her gain more weight will only make the situation worse. While waiting for medical attention to become available, the parents should put the girl on a normal diet to reduce further complications.

Prader-Willi syndrome for example, is a genetic disorder resulting in obesity and an uncontrollable appetite. The only treatment option is to prevent patients from eating themselves to death by limiting access to food. Prader-Willi sufferers are often admitted to care homes where food is locked up and portioned appropriately.

I'm not saying it would be easy to prevent the girl from overreating. Any parent would feel guilty denying their child food when the child claimed to be hungry, but that's no excuse for putting their life at risk by letting them eat everything in sight.

If her appetite's an issue, cant they give here appetite suppressants like Phentermine or something? I know the side effects are bad, but it would keep her alive for a little while longer.

but you are assuming one the parents know that and two they have the capabilities to alter there living situation so that they can keep an eye on her every day all day. :shrug:

I thought the title meant she was eating herself aswell!
the parents should monitor her food intake, and get rid of most of the rocks around where they live, and theyll just unfortunately have to put up with her screaming, its cruel to let her eat that much ;(

Hmm, when I thought that the girl was literally eating herself my first thought was "Well, I can't imagine a more effective way to lose weight".
