The Doctors share a photo questioning the audience what it may be; they guess things like yogurt and breast milk but the answer is surprising: vials of a man’s blood filled with so much fat that it’s turned a milky color! The Doctors explain how this happened.
The man showed up to the E.R. with nausea, vomiting, headaches, deteriorating alertness and he even lost consciousness and had to be on a breathing tube. The man had diabetic ketoacidosis and the level of triglycerides (fat) in his blood were 36 times the normal amount! OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry comments on how rare this occurrence is, for someone to have such a case of poorly controlled diabetes.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork shares the good news that after five days in the hospital the man was cleared of all neurological symptoms. While Dr. Travis notes this man may have genetic abnormalities or a predisposition to high levels of triglycerides but this is another example of the importance of letting food be your medicine, not your poison.
Dr. Travis says it’s okay to treat yourself to a high-fat unhealthy meal every so often but going overboard time and time again will likely lead to high cholesterol and high triglycerides. Dr. Nita adds the importance of regularly seeing a doctor, especially if you have a condition like diabetes. If this man had been routinely seeing a doctor it’s likely they would have caught this before he ended up in the E.R.
