A Boy Ate Only Chips And French Fries For 10 Years. This Is What Happened To His Eyes.

  • Published on Sep 9, 2019
  • This case is based on publication in literature by Harrison R, Warburton V, Lux A, Atan D. Ann Intern Med. 2019 Sep 3. Link below. Non-clinical elements (e.g. initials, story details, etc) are adapted. Peer Review: Dr. Nikhil Parelkar.
    I originally had another case for video of a vitamin b12 deficiency I saw as a student about a girl on an overly strict diet. I didn't release it because the details were more difficult than I would like for a video. The clinical principles and science of that case and this one are the same.

    Oooooo. My eyesight has been shit since I was 5. I have amblyopia and my left eye has always been much weaker. But I’ve notice nowadays at 24 that I can’t see anything in detail within 5 feet without my glasses. My left eye is completely useless as I can physically see but no details whatsoever with or without my glasses. Long story short my 5-6 year long fast addiction sounds plausible for making it worse.

    I had a vitamin b12 deficiency. I realized something was wrong when I had trouble lifting my legs, it was like their were weights on my shoes. If I sat down it took me some time to get up because my legs tended to just not be able to hold up my upper body weight plus the weight I was feeling in my legs. Lolz 😂

    This is weird. They're obviously going to McDonald's or some other fast food place. But the kid never wanted a cheeseburger or chicken nuggets with his fries. Seems kinda far fetched. A normal parent would make him eat some protein.

    I have a Feeding Disorder. It's like an eating disorder except instead of denying myself food to get skinny, I am literally *repulsed* by food and the thought of eating. I drink a lot of Ensure. I don't look malnourished because I'm overweight, but I am *severely lacking* in vital nutrients and supplements without the Ensure drinks. It's called ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder) and yeah it's possible to have a disorder where you literally *loathe* the thing that you need in order to, you know, keep existing. Sometimes I just want a feeding tube. I feel bad for this kid because I can imagine myself in his shoes easily. Between actual dietary restrictions from gastric issues, and ARFID, I've been hospitalized multiple times.... all while at healthy weights or even overweight too. Because I still ate........ but I ate *junk* repetitively. I got calories, could gain fat, but that doesn't equal nutrition!
