The girl was born with normal weight, and then she began to gain it very quickly. Now Chahat weighs 17.5 kg, this is the average weight of a 4-year-old child.
Her father Suraj Jumar, 23, said: “When Chahat was born, she was perfectly normal.
Her parents are worried. “Her weight is going up daily.” – says her 23-year-old father Suraj Jumar.
Her 21-year-old mother Reena, said: “We had a son who died and then Chahat was born and I’m worried about her health.
“She eats all the time and if we do not give her something to eat she begins to cry. She cries because she wants to walk, but her weight is too big”.
Parents cannot agree with the statement that the child is gaining weight because of overfeeding.
“It’s not our fault. God gave her such a disease. It’s not in our power. I feel bad when some people laugh at her for being so fat”.
Moreover Chahat suffers from abnormally thick skin which makes the blood test impossible. The Jumar family also does not have the money to travel to another country where they could get better treatment.
Reena said: “We do not have enough money for her treatment, but we are doing everything possible to make her recover. She has a problem with the skin. Her skin is so dense that doctors could not take the analysis. ”
Vasudev Sharma, a family doctor, said that this is the first time in his life that the weight of a child has been so much increased from four to five months after birth. He added that without a blood test, it is impossible to diagnose Chahat disease.
He recommends that the Jumar family visit a pediatric specialist at the Civil Hospital in Amritsar. The family still cannot afford it because of their financial situation.
“Her weight is growing very fast and he needs to be controlled” Sharma insists.
“She must eat less. She eats like a 10-year-old child”. The parents of Chahat would like her to be the same as any other “normal” child. Mother says: “We want Chahat to be able to play like normal children. We do not want her to have difficulties in the future .. “We wish only a good future for her”
