Overweight baby baffles Indian doctors
Chahat Kumar, an eight-month-old baby in India who weighs as much as a healthy four-year-old, has left doctors wondering what could be the cause of her voracious appetite.
Chahat Kumar was born a healthy baby without any complications.
When she was about months old, Chahat’s weight began ballooning. She now weighs 38 pounds and cries whenever she is not being fed.
“It’s not our fault,” Suraj, Chahat’s father said. “God gave this condition to her. It’s not in our hands. I feel bad when some people laugh at her for being fat.”
Doctors have been unable to obtain a blood sample from Chahat as her skin is abnormally thick. She also suffers breathing and sleeping problems due to her extreme weight, according to media reports.
