Brain Waves #40: Prader-Willi Syndrome

Dr Azlina Ahmad Annuar is back for her monthly series, and joining her for this show is Azhar Talib, the president of the Malaysian Prader-Willi Syndrome Association. Prader-Willi is a rare genetic condition due to a chromosomal abnormality, and is often diagnosed in infancy. It causes a range of symptoms in the individual, including physical, mental and behavioural issues. We speak to Azhar Talib, whose daughter has Prader-Willi syndrome to find out how the individual and their families cope with the diagnosis and the kind of support they have here in Malaysia. 


To reach out to the Malaysian Prader-Willi Syndrome Association, you can find them on Facebook and on Instagram.
