Do get a thorough medical examination to rule out endocrine factors especially if thyroid problems or diabetes in the family. Diet control is a must irrespective. At their age at least 20-30 min of active physical exercise daily is required.

Hello sir...sorry to hear about that..probable causes are genetic factors, lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating patterns, or a combination of these factors...some times hormonal imbalances can cause issues like this...it is very important that you allow him or her to know that you will be supportive...try to make your child active,practice healthy food habits, cut down sedentary lifestyle... Consult nearest pediatrician they will do the needful
