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

  • 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.

    These cases are patients who I, or my colleagues have seen. They are de-identified and many instances have been presented in more depth in an academic setting. These videos are not individual medical advice and are for general educational purposes only. I do not give medical advice over the internet, see your own physician in person for that.

    This is tragic, but there are lessons in it for certain other people too. If your diet requires you to supplement with pills made in a lab, then it's not a natural diet. If it isn't a natural diet for your species, then you shouldn't follow it. We are the only animal on the planet that gets confused about this. Humans are demonstrably omnivores. We are not herbivores.

    When I’m craving beef and tired I know I’m low on b12. It’s just the way my body and mind connect. I know because it’s happened to me. I also know when I’m low on electrolytes because I get nautious and vomit and I’m at risk for seizure activity. Time to increase Gatorade to prevent seizures.
