Please be aware that when you contact us about a specific problem concerning someone with Prader-Willi syndrome, our specialists have not seen this person professionally in clinic. Therefore, IPWSO can only give advice in general terms based on our knowledge about Prader-Willi syndrome. We do not have the authority to force anyone in your country to give any specific treatment(s) or support, but we can give our professional opinion about what we consider the best treatment strategies. Our goal is to support you as best as we can
