Storyboard Text

  • Pica is a eating disorder where someone can't stop eating things that have no nutritional value, such as dirt in Tyler's case.
  • The symptoms of Pica are malnutrition and just eating things that are not nutrition or food.  
  • Doctors diagnose Pica by doing blood tests and checking for anemia and blockage. The only way to treat this is close medical monitoring and therapy. 
  • Pica has been seen to be caused by a deficiency in any nutrient, a coping mechanism, enjoyment of textures or flavors, or to just feel full.
