18-year-old Harvey, son of Katie Price is suffering from a genetic condition known as the Prader-Willi syndrome which causes him to have an uncontrollable appetite for food.
According to doctors, if Harvey does not lose his 29 stones weight and if the appetite is not subjected to control, he could suffer a heart attack.
As a result, his mother has been trying to deliberately deny him some food but according to her, it has not been easy.
She has shared some of the challenges with the Sun.
“It’s a cruel and horrible illness where he feels hungry all the time — and if he doesn’t get food he gets angry. It’s hard work.
“He’ll smash things up if you say no. I’ve had to re-plaster my walls because he’ll bash holes in them with his head.
“He knows what nice things taste of. I’ll give him sweet potato chips instead of real fries but he knows the difference.”
“He’ll need to lose weight or he’ll end up dead. I don’t want to lose him.
“You can’t leave food or leftovers on the side or he’ll eat it, and he’s really quick too.
“He even eats in his sleep. He’ll walk downstairs and eat whatever he can find. We’ve even found him rummaging through friends’ bags for food.” She said.
