Wow...that is a nasty syndrome. What a challenge to go through life constantly feeling like you are starving.

It is really unfortunate. There is no cure, just behavior modification...even that most of the time, as you can see from the little article, is always a work in progress.

Good news is, it is not fatal, although the morbid obesity can be. With love and support they can go on to live relatively normal lives (except for the food thing).
