Many children who have had excessive weight gain may have other health or developmental issues. We often work with children who have other medical issues including:

  • Metabolic issues (such as thyroid issues, or blood sugar issues like pre-diabetes or other endocrine issues)
  • Gastrointestinal issues (such as fatty liver, constipation or vitamin or mineral deficiencies)
  • Joint pain or orthopedic issues (such as Blount's disease, slipped capital femoral epiphysis)
  • Sleep issues like obstructive sleep apnea
  • Developmental delay
  • Prader Willi Syndrome
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy
