PWS Awareness Month (May 10) – GI

Most people with Prader-Willi syndrome lack the ability to vomit. If spoiled food, too much food, or an episode of gastroparesis occurs, vomiting may not be possible and may lead to a GI emergency. Pay close attention to bowel movements to ensure that there is not a slowing of the GI tract. And seek medical advice if spoiled or a large amount of food is consumed.
