An Indonesian boy is so obese that has dropped out of school as he can no longer walk. Weighing 192 kilograms, his parents are placing him on a crash diet for fears he might die.
When Arya Permana was born he gained weight at a normal rate. But by his second birthday, his parents said ‘his weight went out of control.’
'He has an enormous diet and can actually eat meals of two adults at one time,' Arya’s mum Rokayah said according to the Daily Mail.
'He was fatter than my first son and other children in the village but we did not think it was a matter of concern. We were happy to see him fuller and considered him to be a happy, healthy child.
'But it was only a few years later when he bloated and his weight went out of control, we realised he was suffering from a disorder and needed medical attention.'
Arya, who was eating five large meals a day, is now on a diet of brown rice.
'He is always tired and complains of shortness of breath. He only eats and sleeps and when he is not done with both, he jumps into the bathtub and stays there for hours,’ Rokayah
'He can only take small steps before he loses balance. I wish to see my son studying and playing with other kids in the neighbourhood.'
