When we or our physician suspect Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) the next step is a blood test.
In lot’s of countries of the World where PWS awareness is not so strong there is a big confusion and mistake what physicians make:
“they are sending the parents with their kids only to check the FISH method of testing and with this they do not rule out PWS 100%!After getting the negative FISH test result, the parents calm down and get reassured that their child does not have PWS.
But! nobody knows that with the FISH analysis they only ruled out PWS 50%!”
And meantime PWS takes it’s price :
NO Growth Hormone Therapy!
NO food control,
…and practically the child is in a life threatening condition!
Parents and physicians start to suspect PWS again when it is already too late!
