Yes, but bypass surgery does not always work. About 25% of patients go back to the old eating habits and get fat again.

I think in this case.. they had to SOMETHING to offset his weight gain if his legs are bowed and whatnot. But the bypass was just a bandaid ...  they need to get at the root of the problem.

making the stomach small physically prevents him from eating himself to death. 
they need better research and medicine for this.
i also think some of the hormones we feed animals to make them gain weight faster are being passed up the food chain. 
these are my random thoughts and i am not willing to defend them, so don't come for me fat is a choice policeLOL


but that is basically a symptom of Prader's: the insatiable appetite combined w/ the inability to understand when they are full. so they will gorge themselves until they get sick, and still want to eat. you basically have to keep food under lock and key. 

i don't think making the stomach smaller doesn't necessarily mean that the drive to eat will go away. i have worked w/ a few kids w/ Prader's and once they see food, they cannot control themselves.

the kid from SA in the pics didn't have it. the 4yr old mentioned at the end of the article did, and i would be interested to see how that works out in the future.

it sounds like the kid from SA would have benefited from a stricter diet monitored by doctors on a daily basis or something...the surgery is too extreme.

Wow, I feel like there should've been another alternative introduced before proceeding with the gastric bypass...

Glad he's lost weight though...

After reading that report on this case, I really question if this is real. It is kinda strange.
