'I thought it was because I had good breast milk'

But he stands out in a stunning and perhaps life-threatening way: he weighs 28 kilos (62 pounds).

Medics are considering giving him with hormone treatment that can cost $US555 per shot, despite his father earning just $200 per month.

Luis' mysterious condition remains unknown to the doctors, but they have a few ideas on what he might suffering from. This way, they get exposed to high risks of obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Mario Gonzales (R) looks as his elder son, Mario (bottom) hugs his ten-month-old brother Luis at their home in Tecoman, Colima state, Mexico on November 8, 2017.

The baby is now bigger than his older brother, who is three years old.

At the time of birth, the toddler weighed a perfectly normal 8 pounds but after two months he weighed 22 pounds, sparking concerns about his health. Over the next eight months he gained a staggering 18kg (40lbs).

"I thought it was because I had good breast milk", the 24-year-old mother from Tecoman, Mexico, told AFP.

The family have now set up a Facebook page and bank account to try and raise money for Luis's medical care.

She also revealed the family take it in turns to push the boy to a local hospital where doctors are baffled by his condition.

She is awaiting results but has a theory that he could be helped by hormone injections.

One of the main hypotheses is that the boy could have a disease called Prader-Willi Syndrome, a genetic condition in which children have an insatiable appetite and weak muscle tone.

Global CO2 emissions to rise for first time in years
China's emissions contributes almost a third of the world's total emissions, and was a key factor in the rise. When emissions flatlined for three years, it was the result of the country's reduced economic growth .

Isabel Pantoja (C), 24, holds her ten-month-old baby Luis Gonzales as they arrive at a clinic in Colima city for Luis' medical check-up, in Mexico on November 9, 2017.

The day of his first vaccine he weighed 10 kilos, she said.

But even with up to four hospital visits a week, no one has been able to reach a definitive diagnosis.

At the moment, despite being alert and responsive - as full of giggles and gurgles as any baby - Luis Manuel can neither walk nor crawl. He can only sit upright.

Pantoja said he is becoming exhausted from carrying him so much, despite being a well-built man who works at a juice plant.

But there is hope.

Their son's case is reportedly now in the hands of surgeon Silvia Orozco, who recently conducted a thorough examination on him.

Mario Gonzales lifts his ten-month-old baby Luis at their home in Tecoman, Colima state, Mexico on November 8, 2017.

Orozco believes that Luis's problems could have been caused by a lack of certain nutrients in his mothers diet while she was pregnant.

If so - pending the results of tissue samples being done in the USA - he could be helped with a different kind of hormone shot that would kick-start his metabolic glands.
