“I hope the recognition of Guinness World Records title would change my life forever. I have always dreamed of dressing like other women, but I accept myself now and live with satisfaction and conviction.”
Like Huda, Mohamed also began to grow taller. The size of his hands and arms continued to grow to a record-breaking size as he grew taller. Mohammad says,
“Everything seems small in my hands, even shaking hands with people has become a reminder of how I differ from others,”
But to everyone’s surprise, they are still growing!
Both siblings live with their mother in a small village 90 minutes outside Cairo.
Conferring to the doctors,
“Huda and Mohammad are believed to have a benign tumor in their pituitary glands that cause excess production of growth hormones. “

It is he who makes a Galabiyah (a loose-fitting garment) for Mohamed and a dress for Huda, and they return to him each year for yearly changes in the body. Mohamed and Huda are still growing in height and may need an operation to stop it as soon as possible.
It takes tenacity and ingenuity to secure a Guinness World Records certificate. But it is undoubtedly true that Huda and Mohammad have a tough life as they stand out of the crowd.
