About Prader Willi Syndrome:

Prader Willi Syndrome (PWS)is a complex genetic disorder typically causes low muscle tone, cognitive disabilities, lack of sexual development, behavioural issues and a chronic feeling of hunger that can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. PWS is caused by an abnormality on chromosome 15 which occurs around the time of conception. People with PWS can never live independently due to their insatiable appetites. Constant supervision is necessary and adults that seek independence live in group homes that are monitored 24 hours a day. Many children with PWS grow up undiagnosed due to lack of awareness. Early diagnosis is important because it could help children lead more productive lives through education and management of diet and exercise. More information about the PWS is available at www.opwsa.com.
