Default any prove that erlier is better

hello,

i investigated on my own and i found also the article on this page that early start of the treatmrnt of PWS gives better results. But now i am searching for treatment for him, and our doctor said he woul begin at 2 years. I realised that doctors are not united in giving the start of the treatment of the baby. But we all know that this can be one of the determinive factors for better final fading....is there any prove on the basis of which i would be able to get a second opinion from our insurance which will blindlessly and no concidering other point of view follow first doctor opinion to start at 2 years....?????????

i would be most happy for any clue or suggestion...:

The best person to ask that is Dr Nelson. I realize you may have already asked an expert, but if there are any peer reviewed articles (your best chance at "proof"), then he would know.
