Twins rare condition makes them constantly hungry

Stevie and Eddie Ahern suffer from Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic condition that makes them insatiably hungry no matter how much they eat.

Imagine locking your fridge and kitchen cabinet just to prevent your kids from eating too much. Well, that’s what exactly a mother is doing in America.

Stevie and Eddie Ahern were born with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). It’s an extremely rare condition, which makes the boys constantly hungry.

The disease affects 1 in every 25,000 children and leaves them with an insatiable appetite, low muscle tone and speech delay. Their mother Dianna says the boys never feel full and will eat anything they find, including cleaning products.

Stopping her boys from overeating is a tough thing to do for Diana because they don’t understand why she does it. Sometimes, when the family is out for shopping, she’s unable to control them and calls the police for help.

The 55 year-old says she’ll do whatever she can and will keep fighting for her children despite the hard time she’s going through.
