Hello Everyone, I'm concerned about my 15 year old son. He weighs 487lbs, I'm not with his father anymore, so he stays at his father for one week then me. His father is biggish 550lbs plus. I am wondering what I should do?

Have you gotten him checked for pre diabetes? Do you remember the last time he had a doctor's appointment?

The only thing you have some control over is what your son eats when he's with you. Do you try to restrict what he eats? Does he buy food like junk food or snacks on his own? Is he active, walking around and driving?

Well, I can't do much about my ex's weight. He has put on a bit of weight since we broke up. I don't know my son's height but he is average.

oh wow Dane, that's a troubling amount of weight for a a full grown man, let alone a teen. Is his weight balanced out by his height much? What are his diet and sctivity levels like? How does your ex eat?
