WHAT IS PICA?

Pica is an eating disorder characterized by the desire to eat products with little or no nutritional value.

These can include everything from stones, sand, paint and dirt to talcum powder.

It is most common in people with learning disabilities and during pregnancy.

It can cause a series of serious complications if the person eats something that is toxic or indigestible.

These include being poisoned by toxic ingredients and having a part of the body obstructed (which is often seen in people who eat it).

It can also lead to excessive calorie intake, but also to nutritional deficiency if the person eats a substance that has no nutritional value instead of nutritious food.

The person can also damage his teeth and be infected with parasites.

A three-hour operation was urgently performed to remove the metal before it caused more damage.

One of the doctors, whose name was not revealed, said: “We could already see the tip of the knife sticking out of his stomach.

& # 39; We later exploited it without wasting time, but inside we discovered more objects.

& # 39; It contained a knife, eight spoons, two screwdrivers, and two toothbrushes while we continued to serve its stomach. & # 39;

A short metal cylinder rod is also depicted on the row of objects retrieved from the operation, the date of which is unclear.

It is clear that the man suffered from a psychiatric disorder, which may cause him to eat the objects.

The patient is now being looked after by his family, the local reports state.

Although a diagnosis has not been clearly reported, there are some disorders that are characterized by its eating habits.

Pica, for example, is an eating disorder where the person cannot help eating non-food items, including dirt, talcum powder, and metal items.

It often occurs alongside mental disorders that impair performance, such as autism or schizophrenia.

The prevalence of pica is unknown, but it is most likely to be more common in developing countries, according to the National Eating Disorders Associations.
