What is PWS?

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a variable and complex genetic neurobehavioral disorder that causes low muscle tone, short stature if not treated with growth hormone, cognitive deficits, incomplete sexual development, problem behaviors, and a chronic feeling of hunger which, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. PWS is rare and many have not heard of it. At this point, the only treatment available is growth horomone. There is currently no cure for PWS.
