Hyperkalemia and Hyperdopaminemia along with Psychological Modification Induced by an Obsessive Eating of Banana in an Anorexia Nervosa Adolescent pp. 289-304 $0.00

Abstract:
Bananas are known as a dopamine-rich and potassium-rich food, however no
previous data regarding biochemical or psychological alteration induced by excess intake
of bananas has been reported. We encountered a female adolescent patient with anorexia
nervosa, who was obsessed by an extremely restricted eating habit. As a result of
ingesting nothing but a maximum of 20 bananas and less than 500 ml of mineral water
per day for more than two years, she exhibited biochemical and metabolic disorders such
as hyperkalemia, hyperdopaminemia, and pseudoaldosteronism. The patient also showed
a drastic change in her psychological state, represented by decreased anxiety and increase
in inner-impulse. Based on the biochemical changes seen in the patient, the accumulation
of free dopamine due to obsessive banana ingestion was the most likely cause of her
altered psychological state. When the patient resumed eating other food items after 26
months of obsessive and restricted banana ingestion, the abnormalities in her blood
values and her psychological state were corrected to that of the pre-obsessive eating
period. We conclude that in this case, an obsessive and restricted eating habit of banana
ingestion modulated her biological and psychological homeostasis.
