According to his parents, Arya eats five meals a day including rice, fish, beef, vegetable soup and soy patty and is constantly hungry. The child wears only a sarong, a large piece of fabric often wrapped around the waist, as other clothes simply do not fit him.
Initially Rokayah, 35, and her husband Ade Somantri, 45, were not worried about Arya’s weight but now they are extremely concerned about his future and fear he may die if nothing be done about it.
Rokayah and Ade took Arya to several doctors in their village in Cipurwasari in West Java, Indonesia, but surprisingly, their town doctors did not find anything abnormal about his alarming weight. Now they are trying to seek medical help from overseas but don't have the funds for that.
Rokayah, who also has an elder son Ardi, said : “He's 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.”
But by the time he turned two years old, Arya had gained weight at an abnormal rate for his age
"I do not know any other way to stop him from gaining more weight than to give him less food. 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.
He is always tired and complains of shortness of breath. He only eats and sleeps and when he is done with both, he jumps into the bathtub and stays there for hours. My son is growing up at a rapid rate and I am worried for his health."
Arya has dropped out of school cause he could hardly walk, he's growing at an alarming rate and needs immediate medical attention.
