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

  • Published: 10 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.

As he is moved to the ICU he is pronounced dead as he flatlines. At autopsy it is found that he overdosesed on Oreo cookies.

                                    If this is the same case I read about, the patient may well have had a lesser known eating disorder called ARFID - avoidant restrictive intake disorder, where sufferers feel restricted to eating only a few “safe” food items and have an extreme fear of eating anything outside of those items. Oftentimes things like texture can contribute to what is a safe food and what isn’t.

I know a whole bunch of people who are going through this right now because they refuse to included a wider range of foods in their diet. Very sad and troubling
