Prader-Willi Syndrome

By: Reece Barton

What is Prader-Willi Syndrome

Prader-Willi Syndrome is a congenital disease, it affects many parts of the body. People with this condition are obese, have reduced muscle tone, and have mental ability, and have sex glands that either produce little or no hormones.

What are the symptoms?

Poor muscle tone

distinct facial features

lack of eye coordination

Generally poor responsiveness

It is NOT life threating

Do people who have this syndrom experience symtones early on in life or later?

They usually are born with the syndrome, or the begging of the childhood.

What do I think of gentic testing?

No, because it could harm the baby and also most of the babies will be okay its a low percent to have your baby have a disease. It is useful but I wouldn't do it personally.
