Congrats Brother!!   I also entered the field of Medicine..entering my 30s...def worth the exposure to this vast field of knowledge... my only suggestion...as I do have experience w/ having to go through the preliminary "Foundation" post-bach... DO NOT ATTEMPT to work part time!!!  As you will be consistently pressed for Time Management Skills...  esp coming back to school after a long lay off...  The greatest difficulty in this field is not so much the difficulty of subject material (as you will always find yourself fascinated n' enjoy what you're learning) BUT how can you manage all this VOLUME of material in a timely manner?..   Once again...  School "setting adjustment" and "TIME MANAGEMENT" are your two biggest concerns.. If you don't believe you are placing 100% time into medicine.. the road to completion will be next to impossible...   my honest 2 cents brother... Stay focused man.. Pursuing one's passion is always worth it...  Last thing... going for medicine pays good they say.. but cannot be your driving force --if you want to survive.. coz there will be several breaking points...  think of your journey as an "opportunity" rather than an "obligation"...esp when you encounter tedious study material that does not excite u....

Unfortunately, many would still opt for the real sugar sodas.....   This is not so much a case of caloric maintenance levels not being surpassed.. Higher ratios of high glycemic sugars consumed have a direct correlation to insulin sensitivity...and eventual insulin resistance over time....where excessive insulin is being released...  This is known to negatively affect the basic tyrosine kinase activity of the insulin receptors located within our cell's membranes.  Further, excessive depletion and higher demands of insulin production from our beta cells can also force these same beta cells(cells that produce insulin) to not adequately produce insulin later down the line..   Several ways of developing dm2. And disproportionate sugar rushes on a consistent level can be a strong causative effect... Which is why these type of diabetics may not appear obese

a particular curriculum based on your specific line of work will understandably highlight what's most relevant to that profession.. as the course objectives are to paint a bigger picture of what that professional will ultimately have to apply

I will agree w/ Big Chiro... individuals go into their field.. because of their specific interest ... a badass chiropractor will excel doing what he loves...   doesn't mean a doc is any better.. we just learn different things.. it was my choice and scope of interest that lead me into medicine... not coz I found one to be higher on the hierarchy....   as I also respect nurses by choice... you just gotta appreciate your own line of work and why you chose it

i'm not downgrading them and what they were good at... but to say our curriculum is identical...    not a single doctor who went through medical school would agree.. as our objectives are different!!!!!   pls understand that!!  it's not downgrading u.. but letting u know that medicine has to teach anatomy through a different scope
9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: It's just Me MyDelts and I on: January 30, 2014, 10:47:38 PM
we are not taught-- "hey what's this bone?... what does this muscle attach to......?"   in medicine... we are assumed to know this basic aspect of anatomy on our own time. (as we should have completed and excelled at that during a pre-med prgram).. where the pathologies..embryologic al abnormalities are more prone to develop...  
10  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: It's just Me MyDelts and I on: January 30, 2014, 10:44:51 PM
these chiro classmates (who attempted medicine) were smart individuals... but the frame of thinking..discerning symptoms was just a completely different field that they found overwhelming... this was firsthand experience --as I remember studying w/ them
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: It's just Me MyDelts and I on: January 30, 2014, 10:41:59 PM
How do you know how different my curriculum is unless you've experienced it yourself? Just curious. I've known GPs that have failed terms in med school too. So what?



Are you serious?Huh?   Why would you need to know defects of endless pathologies for every specific body part???. these were all MANDATORY(objectives) for a med student.. it is understandable why u wouldn't be taught this...   sorry man... if u can't get this.. there is no discussion here.. I have my former chiro classmates to attest to this !!!!    
12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: It's just Me MyDelts and I on: January 30, 2014, 10:39:29 PM
this timetable is giving a lot of misinformation...     sorry I have to interject...  as my former chiro classmates were always quick to note how med anatomy..  med biochem.etc when relating to symptoms..abnormalities (which makes medicine ..medicine) were taught completely differently... and the volume( mandatory objectives) were not even comparable
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: It's just Me MyDelts and I on: January 30, 2014, 10:36:05 PM
Huh

I have buds in med school. Our first 2 years curiculum were identical. They branch off into pharmacology after that and we branch off into technique and physio.



I completely disagree here.. MED school anatomy is a whole different ballgame.. we are taught via pathologies of anatomy..  simple structure is a given and assumed...  I was classmates with two former chiros and both of them failed term 1 .. as they had a difficult time correlating morbidities tied in w/ the anatomy.. hrs do not equate curriculum taught....    course difficulty levels w 10x more volume to boot are  a completely different ballgame.. ill give chiros their due but to say identical.. NO WAY!!!

but it is acetaminophen that is the number one destroyer of livers, no?

more so during interaction/conjunction w/ other toxic drugs to the liver

Testicles of Peace .... http://politicalblindspot.com/stop-and-frisk-of-african-american-teen/


" A 16-yr-old African American boy was sexually assaulted by a police officer during a “stop and frisk” pat-down. The assault was committed with such violence that the youth’s testicles were literally ruptured.

Now, Darrin Manning of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania may never be able to father children, according to the doctors who performed surgery on his virtually destroyed testicles.

Darrin was a star basketball player with no criminal history to speak of. He was a straight-A student who never got into any sort of trouble. He was with his teammates heading to a game right after school when he encountered an officer who decided he was “suspicious” and needed to be subjected to local “stop and frisk” procedures.

All of the boys with Darrin had scarves covering the lower parts of their faces. But this was simply due to the extreme cold weather that had swept the region, with record-low temperatures that day.
Veronica Joyner, the Principal of the high school the teens attended, said that she herself had given the boys scarves to wear to keep warm in the freezing temperatures. Twenty minutes later, she was informed of Darrin’s “arrest.”

Darrin was put in handcuffs. When the officer began “frisking” him, he grabbed hold of Darrin’s genitals so hard, pulled and twisted, that the teen’s genitals literally tore off.

“I felt the officer reach and grab my butt. Then the officer grabbed my testicles and squeezed again and pulled down. And that’s when I heard something pop, like I felt it POP,” Manning said.

Keon Gerow, Pastor of Catalyst for Change Church, said “We want to have some questions answered and some accountability. We want the entire public to be aware, not only of the Darrin Manning situation, but the entire issue of police brutality.”

This story is without question one of the most severe cases of documented police abuses of power, brutality and sexual assault. Watch the video below and SPREAD THE WORD! There is no excuse for staying silent about this!"

OMR -  i do believe that you were never trying to convince the steroid user that he would be able to revert back to normal...unfortunately, i get the sense from this board that many of the steroid/gh,etc.  users here may read into the context of your statement/point incorrectly.. and assume the extreme - which is full recovery
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Greg Kovacs dies at 44 on: November 29, 2013, 09:12:50 AM
To be frank, the initial claims made by member "Lord Chronos" are not claims that I have thoroughly researched and so I have no idea if his stance is correct or not. Maybe Danny-boy can chime in if he has read up on literature that can substantiate Lord Chronos' statement.

I'm assuming this is what your concern revolves around:

I can only speak from what I have seen and read regarding cardiac (particular ventricular - since atrial revolves around faulty valves causing back-flow leading to chamber enlargement and further pulmonary edema) hypertrophy cases.

I would have to read up on actual studies that might have looked at the effects of prolonged steroid use on the hearts of those undergoing Cardio-Thoracic surgery (what they saw once they opened the sternum) or even post-mortem studies.

"1"


Fibrosis is the body's innate way of repairing these damaged cardiomyocytes... which would eventually cause the stiffening of the ventricle...  Constant excessive lengthening/stretching and reverting to original position - will cause damage == thus leading our own body's defense mechanism to take over...  =Fibrosis...  as also seen in lung conditions
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Greg Kovacs dies at 44 on: November 29, 2013, 08:20:20 AM
I should/will take my statement back from its bold indication and rephrase it to "induced growth over time by the enhanced lifter can be reversible to a small degree/extent, but it's effects are more than likely irreversibly damaging..especially to those who were abusing more long-term".   I'd worry about more than just my heart at this point... 
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Greg Kovacs dies at 44 on: November 29, 2013, 08:07:58 AM
My point being--  The MAJORITY of cases w induced growth are caught far beyond reversibility that would really make a significant difference  ...especially w those living this enhanced lifestyle for years....  Yes, the overall mass of the heart (ventricle in particular) may be reversed to a certain degree from its peak size if discontinuance of lifestyle occurs BUT it's efficiency will forever be changed..I'm speaking in regards to efficient conductivity and contractility..like an over stretched muscle over time-it's productivity will not be as effective.  Think of a rubber band that u keep stretching...... The small reversibility of size that u indicate should not encourage those still abusing that their hearts will go back to normal...that is the take home message...   This will be an ongoing problem for the great majority of these type of enhanced individuals....due to more than likely suffering from other systemic problems... Many children and adults who aren't enhanced athletes would have a better prognosis (who have enlarged hearts) I believe.. My opinion


Regression in the size of the cell does not mean their heart is reversed back into a healthy one.. U don't need a cardiologist to tell you this....  And this is the Majority of cases.... So if there is little growth fellas...and u catch it early.... Change your lifestyle immediately and believe the overall effect is real and detrimental over time...  It's all about what u can do now to fix your life....  OMR I understand your specific point... But it mistakenly implies to the steroid abuser that whenever he wants to stop. - that his heart will revert back to normal..  The minute reversibility is more than likely mute at this point...       IE.  The ave male heart is around 10-12 ounces...  Let's say it grows to 19-20 ounces for the enhanced individual..(completely hypothetical)...  After cessation of lifestyle and drug therapy..heart reverts to 16-18 ounces (his heart originally at 10 ounces)... Technically, you're  right..but is this really reversed?
