Katie Price’s eldest son suffers from a serious genetic defect. How bad it really is for him, she has now spoken about in an interview.
The concern for her son Harvey, 18, is huge – and Katie Price, 42, makes no secret of it. The now 18-year-old has suffered from Prader-Willi syndrome since birth. The genetic defect is associated with severe mental and physical underdevelopment. And it brings something else with it that worries the mother of five.
Katie Price fears for her son’s life
The Prader-Willi syndrome causes those affected to suffer from extreme hunger – which is why they constantly gain weight. Harvey Price is also significantly taller and heavier than other teenagers of his age. And that’s exactly what makes Katie Price very worried, as she now tells in an interview with “The Sun”. The 42-year-old is aware that sooner or later Harvey’s eating habits could even cost him his life! “Harvey has to lose weight urgently, otherwise he will die! I just don’t want to lose him,” said the British It girl in an interview. Harvey is currently eating so uncontrollably that he has gained over twelve pounds in the last two months alone, Katie explains. He is now in a dangerous condition.
Doctors issue warnings
How bad things are for her son, various doctors have pointed out to Katie. They unanimously warn that Harvey is in “critical condition”. He could have a heart attack at any time if he didn’t change his lifestyle and eating habits as soon as possible. But apparently that is easier said than done.
As Katie Price further explains to “The Sun”, she has already taken the first steps to help her elder. So she put together a fitness program for him and made it more difficult for him to eat. But that’s exactly why she keeps clashing with him, she says: “He hits things when you say no. He’s already punched holes in my wall with his head.” Katie Price had already said in the past that she was now downright scared of her son, after all, he was clearly superior to her physically. But the mother of five knows that Harvey has to change something. She is also aware that these changes must be made as soon as possible, otherwise it could be dangerous for the 18-year-old.
