We here report the experiences of a 10.5-year-old girl with leptin receptor deficiency and her family. The diagnosis of this rare genetic obesity had a deep impact on the life of the child and her family. It led to a better underst...

For children, the Endocrine Society (ES) recommends genetic testing in children with early-onset of obesity (<5 years) and hyperphagia. It is unclear whether these recommendations can also be used in adult obesity c...
