article imageWoman going blind after drinking 28 Red Bulls every single day

Newtownabbey - Lena Lupari, 26, from Northern Ireland, is slowly going blind after she consumed an average of 28 cans of Red Bull every single day.
Lupari, a mother of three, has also packed on a lot of weight, which could be the result of drinking so many cans of the energy drink. Lupari weighs around 350lbs. Lupari, who says she was unaware of the damage she was doing to herself, was consuming more than 3,000 calories per day, and that was just from the energy drinks. She said she became aware of the problem when she collapsed back in June.
As for why the young woman is going blind, it is a result of developing idiopathic intracranial hypertension. She developed the condition because she was overweight, according to doctors.
She said that she used to get headaches, but she just ignored them and took painkillers. However, after she collapsed, she ended up spending six days in the hospital.
Lupari said not only did she drink 28 cans of Red Bull per day, but she would usually only have one meal at night, which would either be something like fast-food or just a packet of pasta.
Lupari said that she doesn't have time to make anything because she takes care of her three young kids, one with special needs.
Since she has been out of the hospital, Lupari has quit consuming Red Bull, and she has lost almost 30 pounds as a result. In order to keep symptoms at bay, doctors want her to lose more weight.
The woman said that if she loses weight, it doesn't mean it will go away forever, but it does mean she won't need surgery.
