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

  • Published: 09 September 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.

                              Friend years ago at IBM who at the time he was hired was 20. He drank around 24 cokes a day and ate mostly candy. To make is short 4 years later his teeth were rotted and he looked like death warmed over. When watching you yt videos I'm always amazed how much abuse the body can take.

                                                I'm sorry... but, this is just terrible parenting. I was a very picky eater as a kid, but my mum didn't feed into my bad habits; it was either what's on my plate, or nothing at all, or threats to call the children's hospital, and I'm grateful she did because I love so many foods now. Any parent who would to this extent is just awful and shouldn't have kids, IMO, they're not ready to discipline their little angels and raise them right. "It's not that simple to get my kid to eat healthy" No, just put your foot down and be a damn parent. If he was 14 when this was all happening, that means from the age of 4, his parents fed into his eating disorder. Your kid was 4, and you could have done so many things to introduce different foods and avoid the consequences in the future. Negligence at it's finest... I feel bad for the kid, his parents failed him, it's not entirely his fault.

                                                    Very likely had a eating disorder as well. People usually just think of anorexia but there are actually a lot more types of eating disorder out there.
