    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.

    3. AlizaSkies

      I don't know why I clicked this while I'm literally eating french fries. Also. WHAAAAT? You've never heard of Tube Simulator?

    4. TheCourier

      Why would someone only eat Potato Chips, French fries, and white bread? Wouldn't you eventually get tired of eating the sabe thing all the time?

    5. llxX /\/\¡ŚT Xxll

      Bad parenting....Get off your phones people and wake up. There is far more to you and to life than a back lit computer screens, social media and unnecessary dramas and war.....Wake up and free yourselves.

      Same, but not really. Once when I was a kid for some reason I woke up to get my vitamins and they were GONE. My parents were always busy and never had time to get more and with low iron, I always did things more slowly and lost a lot of energy from it. When I didn't take my vitamins or iron pills, my ankles and wrists started to hurt, and I got tired from running faster. I always went to sleep at 9:30 and had a normal hygiene routine every day, but I still felt terrible pain. I ended up skipping a day of school from the pain in my ankles, I didn't want to move. That day, my dad brought me vitamins and refilled iron pills. Once I had taken my vitamins, I felt much better the next day. My ankles and wrists no longer hurt, and I could run faster and longer than before. So, kids, take your meds. DON’T EXPERIENCE WHAT I HAVE. C:

    18. More or Less

      How TF does a parent let their kid eat only fried potatoes from age 3 - 14? Can't wrap my head around it. Mom wanted him to die.

    19. Tyler Morales

      B12 deficiency is common actually in the U.S. 50% of the population is deficient. Take a supplement, people.

      WOW! Hey do one surrounding Diabetes being caused by TBI. That's actually what I'm dealing with now. It actually happened 4 years ago, but I looked up stress causing Diabetes back then & found nothing. I have no insurance, so I just learn about problems & mitigate damage. I had Diabetes symptoms right after the concussion, such as sweet smelling urine. My symptoms clustered around Multiple Sclerosis too, so I just chalked this up as something to eat healthy to mitigate until I start a career & get an examination. I also tested my blood sugar with my grandmas little finger-pricker thing, & after eating a Jimmy Johns chocolate cookie on an empty stomach, my blood sugar levels were normal. That's why I ruled out diabetes. Well as I approach applying for tech jobs, I switched my day-2-day from Jimmy Johns to a busser job. I began noticing how easily I'd get infections on my cuts from handling eaten food surfaces, & how easily I'd bruise. It turns out there's already a type 3 Diabetes (which people are starting to call Alzheimer's t3) & it's called Diabetes Insipidus. It has to do with a damaged pituitary/hypothalamus not releasing anti-diuretic hormone. I guess that's why I'm randomly desperately thirsty, even though I've always drank water regularly. It also won't show up with blood sugar or insulin tests.

      20/200 is legally blind if that is the best you can get with correction. I have a 20/200 rating in one eye, but I am not considered legally blind in that eye because it is easily corrected to 20/20.

      I don't know you, but I'm proud of you. I recently started watching your videos. I love them. Then I watched your previous videos on weight loss. I got to know a small part of you as a regular person who struggles like the rest of us. But you keep pushing yourself. You have goals and you do what you need to do to meet them. Its inspiring to watch your videos from 2016 to now.

    34. soul reaper

      Unbelievable how dumb some people can be :D

    35. OriginalSashquatch

      Please please cover the British story of the boy who only ate chocolate and chips. They claim it could possibly be a vitamin A deficiency. He had gone blind in one eye.

    36. Alina Small

      What are the parents doing while this kid eats chips and frys

    37. Gabriel Shadwick

      Neural Ophthalmology. Thats fun.

    38. TheGoldenDunsparce

      When you said "DA", I legitimately thought you were going to start rapping...

    39. GreenSheep

      20/200 is legally blind in the US? Since when? My eye doc told me 20/450 was legally blind and I'm sitting at 20/400 Also, that chart of blood cells made me want to see an episode of Cells at Work about B12 deficiency.

    55. The Ultimate Reductionist

      I have NEVER met an unhealthy or blind vegan. People have all sorts of idiotic provably false provably wrong beliefs about what is good or bad for their health. Sciencebasedmedicine. org is an excellent website that debunks all sorts of myths. But don't attack animal rights vegans. Not forcing one's hunger & lifestyle upon nonconsenting animals by going vegan is infinitely more important than any health-nut's idiotic cause, like the idiots who are anti-gluten in spite of NO evidence gluten harms anybody. Whatever trivially small "harms" to anyone's health by going vegan is OVERWHELMINGLY outweighed by not forcing one's hunger & one's health & one's lifestyle choices upon nonconsenting animals.

      People are saying 9 hours is the maximum when the real maximum is 10 years minus one second

    57. Dezsii Faye

      I had macrocytic anemia for years, it turned out to be a rare leukemia (biphenotypic acute leukemia) however I've always eaten healthily. I've always had immune problems, and have had several autoimmune diseases for most of my life.

      1. Aaron Marks

        I hope you're doing better now :(

    58. Genma Saotome

      The explanation of 20/200 needs work. 20 = pt needs to be 20 ft away to see X while someone with "normal" vision can see X 200 ft away. - my off the cuff explanation :)

    59. Dat Asian Boi

      A vegan ate vegan food for 10 years this is what happened to her brain
