A & # 39; sunny and friendly & # 39; 13-year-old child died of a heart condition that was exacerbated by their obesity with which they had been struggling for ten years, was revealed today.

The child, who was Eastern European, was confronted with emotional abuse by their mother who & # 39; hostile and aggressive & # 39; was in the hospital, according to a serious case review.

The mother even brought takeaway meals to intensive care for the child, while she was in a serious condition just a few weeks before their death in April 2015.

Details of the child's death, referred to as F1, have now come to the fore more than four years after the case was discussed at a town hall meeting in Manchester.

The teenager is said to have weighed more than 30 kg (4 pcs 10 lbs) by the age of three and had a body mass index in the 99.6 th century.

GPs, a school nurse, nutritionist and weight management service have all expressed their concerns or worked with the child, the Manchester Evening News.

But they often failed to keep in touch with other authorities, and some were unclear whether weight concerns would be taken seriously as a matter of protection.

A nutritionist did not even discuss concerns about F1 with their school or doctor after the mother blamed F1 for their weight and described it as & # 39; lazy & # 39; and a & # 39; donut & # 39 ;.

The child performed well academically, but their school attendance was poor and their mother said they could not participate in PE due to health problems.

The school provided the child with a PE set that their mother had refused, and also encouraged the child to walk to school and meet friends along the way.

However, the mother would have been & # 39; unhappy with school interference and undermined their approach by continuing to bring F1 to school by car & # 39 ;.

The child would also have asked teachers not to tell their mother that they were taking additional health and exercise lessons.

The report said that F1 is a & # 39; sunny and friendly attitude & # 39; but it soon became apparent that they ate 2,000 calories before lunch, including a takeaway.

In February 2015, the teenager was admitted to the hospital and found to have dilated cardiomyopathy, a blood clot and a history of morbid obesity.

They went home before being admitted to intensive care where their health was "significantly deteriorated and there were major concerns about it."

Doctors ruled out a heart transplant due to the weight and condition of the child and the report found that the weight & # 39; possibly contributes & # 39; to causing their cardiomyopathy.

During their last weeks at the hospital in April 2015, doctors also expressed concerns about the mother – and criminal investigations were initiated, but no action was taken.

Julia's protective board chairman, Julia Stephens-Row, said: & # 39; It is an area where everyone should have difficult conversations.

& # 39; It is not an easy conversation to talk to parents about the weight of their child and possibly also about their own weight. It is that family environment. & # 39;
