Please HELP!!!!

I work in a home for disabled men. One of my clients is 547lbs. We have tried everything we can to help him lose weight which has been chalangeing because his mental age is that of an eight year old. In the last 6 months he has gained 114 lbs. which is not typical for him to gain so much so fast. Also he is only eating about 1500 cal a day and swims at least 14 laps a week water walks an equivlent of 4 hrs of walking a week. We have taken him to his primary care physican and several other drs. but unfortanly he is looked at like "he caused this himself if he dosn't care why should we" and the "the only thing we can sugest is just lose weight" attitude. we fear there is an underline medical cause for his weight gain. he also has other health issues that need a CT scan for dx, but can not find a center that has a ct scan that will hold his weight.

Please help and let me know if you know of a place that has a ct scan that can hold up to at 550 lbs or more. We live in Utah but will be willing to travel anywhere.

Thank you
