Doctors Have Been Left Baffled By This Baby That Weighs So Much!
Doctors in India are baffled over the extremely high weight of a 39-pound baby girl. Chahat Kumar is eight months old, and she lives in Punjab. The baby started gaining weight rapidly at just four months old after she was born at an average weight. Kumar now weighs a whopping 39 pounds which are the average weight that of a four-year-old.
Her father 23-year-old father, Suraj Jumar, said that when his daughter was born, she was completely normal. Soon after, however, the baby's weight started to shoot up. The little girl's weight in increasing day by day. And her 21-year-old mother, Reena, is also concerned about her daughter's increasing gains. The mother said that before Chahat was born, they had a son who died, so they were concerned about her health. The mother says that Chahat does not eat like a normal kid and that she wants to eat all the time. If the baby is not given enough to eat, she starts to cry. When the baby cries to go outside, her mother cannot pick her up because she is too heavy. So the parents only take her to places that are close by. The baby cries to go out but her because her weight is so much, the parents are unable to pick her up. Because of this the family stays close to home.
The new father says that Chahat's weight surge has nothing to do with her upbringing. He says that it is not their fault and that God gave the condition to her. To make matters worse, the baby suffers from the abnormally hard skin which makes blood samples a nightmare. The Kumar's also don't have the money to travel away to seek better medical treatment. Sadly Chahat's skin is so hard that doctors cannot get a sample from her body. Vasudev Sharma is the family's doctor, and he says that this is the first case he has seen where a child's weight has been rising so much four to five months after birth. He added that the lack of a blood test means that it is impossible to diagnose Chahat's condition. Instead, the doctor has recommended the family visit a Pediatric specialist at the Civil Hospital in Amritsar. Again, this is a challenge for the family given their financial standing. The baby's weight is increasing quickly, and it has to be controlled the doctor has said. The doctor says that the baby has to eat less and that she eats like a 10-year-old kid.
