Could being a picky eater lead to a loss of vision?
The Doctors discuss the case of an 11-year-old boy who spent months on a restricted diet, which reportedly included oat cereal, lamb, and potatoes. While on the diet, the boy reportedly nearly lost his eyesight.
The food the boy was eating all shared one commonality, none of them were good sources of vitamin A. The lack of the key vitamin caused the outer layer of his eye to become extremely dry and impaired his vision.
The boy was reportedly on the restricted diet due to having multiple food allergies and eczema and it was an attempt to stop those issues from occurring.
The Doctors note that a vitamin A deficiency is the leading cause of blindness in children around the world. They share that vitamin A can be found in foods like carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkins.
