what causes the shrinking limbs is increased pressure on the spinal column which impinges nerves and blood flow to the limps and cuts of a little blood flow to them.

This. Spinal stenosis(narrowing of the spinal canal) from years of lifting weights. The guys with Palumboism probably were born with spinal stenosis and it gets greatly exasperated by years of heavy lifting. Do some research, it matches Palumboism pretty closely.

I wonder if Diabetes helps add to symptoms of Palumboism. They're ALL diabetics who most are in denial over the disease.

hello general, i'm a resident jackass from your excellent hardcore section here at getbig.  if it applies to you, you should visit it more often.  there are many smart people eager to help and more insight and research are always valuable. Grin

forum-pimping aside, i need your help.  i want to see if i can come up with an idea of what causes palumboism beyond "massive drug use". Tongue  to do so, i need to develop an exact symptomology, because i think it's something categorically different from what ronnie, jay, etc. develop.  i have a few hypotheses as to causes, but these are some symptoms i think i see:

a)  lipodystrophy, or abnormal fat distribution.  apparently there's reduced limbic fat but greater trunk and visceral fat.  this means arms and legs would still be very cut but your torso and abdomen in particular would always appear watery and bloated.  is this a good observation?

b)  muscle atrophy and wasting.  is it particular muscle groups that seem to get hit worse?  note that synthol use may mask some of the wasting in muscle groups where it can be used...

c)  bloated head.  this isn't so different from what ronnie et al have and is probably linked just to gh and not anything else.

d)  other symptoms?  anything particularly strange and interesting that all of them have in common?

big help everyone.  thank you.

a) pure broscience, brown adipose tissue and white adipose tissue is all there is.

b) seriously? segmentad muscle atrophy?

c) gh will grow and "bloat" not only your muscles, but your skeletal ssytem as a whole

d) the cockatail of drugs they consume is enough to ensure some "odd" changes

I understand that most if not all pro bodybuilders take insulin, but how does it turn them into diabetics?

Did you mean "exacerbated"?

 And well, Palumboism doesnt really seem to be related to stenosis, bone structure and bone deficiencies? More like enlargement of certain soft muscle tissue

I was speaking more for the atrophied limbs being related to stenosis. The enlargement of certain tissues, the abdomen, falls more in line with slin and GH abuse.

i think is the XS use of insulin,. GH and IGF 1 whcih causes the lipodystrophy/central abdominal bloating/limb atrophy

the combosomehow causes Xs endogenous production of cortisol from the adrenals giving a combination of a somewhat Cushingoid/HIV +ve Phenotype

I really wish the original palumbism thread was never deleted in that snafu months ago. What a shame. Whoever authored it should replicate it as closely as possible to the original.

I have very good news
