Katie Price shares that son Harvey will die if he doesn’t take his medication

Katie Price has revealed that if her son Harvey does not have his medication he will die.

The former glamour model, 41, discussed the implications of 17-year-old Harvey, who suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, missing out on having his prescribed mediation on her latest episode on her YouTube channel.

Prader-Willi Sydrome is a genetic disorder due to the loss of specific genes and can often lead to intellectual impairment and behavioural problems.

She told her fans: "My son Harvey Price he was born blind, he's on the autistic spectrum, he's got Prader -Wili, tick disorder, ADHD, opposite deficit disorder and there's a lot more."

Detailing his extensive medication schedule, she added: "He's on medication six times a day and if he doesn't take his medication he will unfortunately pass away."

Katie spoke about Harvey as she dedicated her newest YouTube instalment to answering the most searched questions about her.

She named the episode: " Katie Price Answers the Web's Most Searched Questions."

Elsewhere in the footage, the bombshell addressed a question that asked if she put Harvey into care.

Katie told: "I have never ever ever put Harvey Price into care ever.

"I think people are talking about at his school where they do residential there Monday to Friday. Yes Harvey is in residential, it's safer for him and he loves it there."

She added: "It's the best thing for me but I get him every weekend, every holiday and I go visit him in the holidays."

Katie's candid chat comes after she revealed plans to introduce Harvey to his dad, former footballer Dwight Yorke.

On a previous episode on her YouTube channel, Katie documented her hair-styling session with pal Mel, where she dropped the bombshell about her former flame.

The former model and Dwight were in a relationship in the early noughties, but the pair called it quits in 2002 shortly after Harvey's birth.

Katie claims Dwight has only seen the lad a few times since – and that he's been mostly absent from Harvey's life.

Chatting with Mel about Harvey's Instagram profile and her plans to make him a YouTube channel, Katie said: "What I would like to do is turn up at his dad's place – Dwight Yorke's – ring the doorbell and be there with Harvey, for him to see Harvey.

"That's what I would like to do and I will do that. I think Dwight should start entering Harvey's life, it's been years."

"How long has it been?" Katie asks Mel, "Harvey was four when he last saw him."

Mel chimes in: "Yeah, but how many opportunities have you given him?"

Katie adds: "I would love Dwight to come into contact with Harvey. How can you not want to know Harv? He's so funny."

Katie's autobiography claims: "The last time Harvery's biological father Dwight Yorke saw him, which was around eight years ago, the first thing he asked was why was Harvey so big. Why was I overfeeding him?

"I'd explained Harvey's condition to Dwight many times, but he refused to understand it and kept going on about him being fat.

"It's sad that he's unable to accept Harvey for who he is and seems unable or unwilling to work within his limitations.

"On that occasion, I think Dwight wanted to blame someone for the fact that his son is disabled.

"I have always said that if Dwight could see what a courageous and talented boy Harvey is then he would enjoy being with him so much."
