What Is Progeria - Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS)
Kaylee, Tim and Marla joined Dr Oz today to share their daughter's story of living Progeria. Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), also called progeria or premature aging syndrome, is a medical disorder in which a random genetic mutation causes cells in the body to die at a much faster rate than normal. Its name derives from the Greek and means “prematurely old.” Progeria is so rare it occurs only once in every 8 million births; at the time this article was written, only 62 people around the world were known to be living with the disorder.
Symptoms of ProgeriaChildren with progeria have normal intelligence and motor control skills, they look older than they actually are. They appear normal at birth, but within 6 months to 2 years, symptoms of premature aging start to emerge. During this time, the child grows at a much slower rate in terms of height and weight than children of the same age. Clinical features of progeria include a disproportionately large cranium, small jaw, prominent scalp veins, baldness, wrinkled/thick skin, loss of body fat, cardiovascular disease and stroke, hearing loss, stiffness of joints and hip dislocation. If a doctor suspects a child has progeria, a genetic test may be performed to confirm a diagnosis.
The Progeria Research Foundation QUICK FACTS
Dr oz found Reggie while doing a segment on the Show "Extra" Life Changers Series. Reggie's heart function was half of normal, and very over weight. Reggie's Blood Pressure went from 252/130 to 132/70, and lost 40 pounds, his starting weight was 370 pounds.
Reggie went Vegan for 31 days just to prove everyone he could stick with the health plan. He exercised and would swim twenty minutes a day. he looked great and wore the pants he used to wear to show everyone how much room he had in them now.
Dr Oz found some problems with his food logs, as he was having healthy salads, but he wasn't having any protein in it. So Dr Oz told him to add the protein because this is a diet for life.
Then Dr Oz introduced him to this shake he thought tasted great which has soy protein powder, and soy milk added as part of the recipe, so he would feel full longer.
