Recent reports have revealed that Keith Martin, 42, from North West London has broken the Guinness World Record of fattest man by overtaking Manuel Uribe, who has undergone dieting to shed weight.
He weighs more than 60 stones and needs 18 care takers to keep him alive. Martin told that he started gaining fat when he was a teenager, but things were quite manageable at that time.
His health took a toll at the time when he lost his mother. Martine became least concerned about his health and used to consume anything that came his way. "My mother died when I was 16 and I didn't care about anything after that and I couldn't care less about what happened to me - I ate anything and everything", said Martin.
Things kept on worsening since then and now he has reached at the point where he hates to see what he has done to himself. It's been 10 years now and he has not gotten up from the bed and only goes out of the help twice a week when he has to visit hospital and that too with the help of eight ambulance workers.
Doctors have made him clear that they cannot even think of conducting weight loss surgery on him. He has to lose half of his weight before they discuss any surgery plans. Martin's increasing weight is proving fatal for his body parts and his internal organs are getting weak with every passing day.
There are chances that he can suffer acute heart attack if he does not take care of his weight. Doctors further revealed that four attendants are always with Martin and other nurses come twice a day to check his health reports. Martin is unable to do any work and needs four attendants to wash him thrice a week.
