A desperate Indian dad said he will sell a kidney to get treatment for his three morbidly obese children.
Two sisters and their baby brother are so obese they are unable to walk and their desperate poverty-stricken father plans to sell his kidney to pay for medical treatment.
Yogita Rameshbhai Nandwana, five, Anisha, three, and 18-month-old little brother Harsh are among the heaviest toddlers in the world each weighing a staggering 34kg (5.3st), 48kg (7.5st) and 15kg (2.5st) respectively, Mirror Online repoted
According to ibtimes.co.in reports, their father, 34-year-old Rameshbhai Nandwana, is a daily wage labour. He is now planning to sell his kidney to arrange for money for the treatment of his kids.
The family has already spent a lot of money on consulting with local doctors, but none of them could suggest a treament for the disorder.
The daily diet of Yogita and Anisha includes 18 chapatis, two bowls of broth, 3lbs of rice, six packets of chips, five packs of biscuits, 12 bananas, and a litre of milk.
As the trio experience frequent bouts of hunger, their 30-year-old mother Pragna Ben spends most of her time in the kitchen preparing food for them.
"When Yogita was born she was extremely weak and weighed just 1.5kg (3.3lbs). We were worried for her health. So we fed her a lot during the first year of her life to build her strength but by her first birthday she had bloated to 12kg (1st 12lbs)," Nandwana said to Daily Mail.
Anisha also went through the same phases. The couple understood that their kids suffer from some disorder only after their youngest, a son, became obese within one year like his siblings.
Meanwhile, the couple also has a six-year-old daughter, Bhavika, who weighs just 16 kg.
