Juanita Valentina Hernandez weighs the same as a 5 year old, although she is only 10 months old. When she was born, Juanita had a normal weight, but somehow things got out of hand. She is now morbidly obese, and no one knows why.
Mom panicked when she saw that the little girl came to weigh no less than 44 pounds. The woman realized that her child’s obesity could be fatal. “When she was just 15 days old I realized she is gaining weight too fast for her age,” said mom.
In December, a Colombian charity took Juanita to a clinic where she is being treated for severe obesity.
