  • Musicaddicted -

    Just thought I'd let you know that your signature is quite awesome. [:

  • Scaredycrow -

    Community is my favourite too. I think I'd much prefer prevention-oriented stuff over treatment, but there are some disease states that really interest me too, like inborn errors of metabolism and stuff like that.

    Yeah they keep us busy, don't they? My brain is like melting right now haha.


    And riiiight, that makes sense. At least, it's a plausible explanation! It's interesting though because we have gummy vitamins at our house and my boyfriend wanted to eat all of them at once (:lol:), so we were talking about the high iron thing - I looked it up and [URL="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19226888"]this[/URL] was actually the most recent thing I found!

  • Scaredycrow -

    Ohh okay. Which is your favourite? We don't get into a lot of clinical/community stuff until next semester and 3rd year, but Food and Bioproduct Services was pretty much the best class ever.

    Sorry, I meant why does it contribute to an increased risk for heart disease? :p

  • Scaredycrow -

    We take a lot of nutrition courses too, and a fair amount of biochemistry and 'medicine' type classes (like pathology). But we have classes that kind of teach us about all the fields that most dietitians enter (clinical, community, food services, business, etc.). Is yours like that too or do you kind of "specialize"?

    Interesting. Do you know [I]why[/I] that correlation would exist? I know I have something written in my notes from last year about how it's easier for men to get too much iron, but I'm too lazy to dig it up right now and I'm pretty sure the only other thing I had noted with it was something about liver damage.

  • Scaredycrow -

    It's definitely better than getting up at 5:30 for work all summer, but 8:30 is still the earliest possible class time and it would be nice to sleep in some days. :(

    Hm! So do you have set classes that you have to take, or do you focus your studies on a specific field a little more? Ours kind of sounds like the coordinated program, but I think that's the only way you can do it (although there's still a lot of classes, haha).

    Sooo... why allow your iron levels to skyrocket? :p Just due to your diet?


    p.s. Sorry for not replying very quickly - I'm usually only on for a couple minutes at a time. My week from hell is over, though, so hopefully I'll have a little more time. ^^

  • Scaredycrow -

    Wow, that's really early. All my classes start at 8:30 and I thought that was bad enough. :lol:

    We require an internship and an exam, too. It's still another year and a half and a bit until I start mine though, and I feel so impatient haha. I'm so excited for it. What's the difference between the didactic and coordinated programs?

    I loooove veggies. I pretty much survive on stir frys. And I own a Slap-Chop. Stopped having boring vegetables, stopped having boring life. ^^ Are you supplementing with IP6? Why not munch some food sources?

  • Scaredycrow -

    Why up by 4 a.m.? :o

    Stats is the absolute worst. I had to take that last year and I'm so glad that I'll never have to see it again, haha. I have 6 classes and 2 labs each semester (36 credit units total). D: Super interesting though. We get to do a lot of practical stuff this year - working with immigrant families, developing legit resources, etc.

    What do you have to do to become a dietitian in the states? (Assuming that's where you live). Do you need an internship and have to write an exam and stuff?

    I had kraft dinner and cooked vegetables for dinner last night and I'm having a hard-boiled egg for breakfast. I may be in nutrition, but I'm still a student. And it's the weekend. :lol:

  • Scaredycrow -

    Whuuuuut, a test at 9:30? That's late! How many classes are you taking?

    I'm pretty much the same though - school keeps me busy but I really enjoy it. Four midterms next week is not my idea of fun, though. D:

  • Scaredycrow -

    Wassappppppppp

  • sarah -

    You aren't, and I don't have anyone to talk to either. Come online. ^^

  • sarah -

    You haven't been on MSN much.

  • Vice -

    I am many things, but Aleksandr is not gay.

  • Vice -

    Who is this? Are you gay?

  • Scaredycrow -

    Oh damn! I somehow totally missed that you replied to this. Thanks for the information! My computer prefers "gherkin", haha. :p

  • Dom -

    ;)

  • Dom -

    nomnomnomnomnommnom

  • Dom -

    Lol!

  • Dom -

    Ahhhh, that's a long-ass time!

    I know right, school was such a waste...I don't think I use anything I learnt in school to do my job..

  • Dom -

    I'm guessing you have to do one first? Then the other?

    Your education system is lolololol :p

  • Dom -

    Oh, that sounds pretty interesting, how many years is all that going to take?

    Well I finished college, so now I'm a fully qualified grease monkey! So just working away now, saving up as much money as I can I guess :)

  • Dom -

    I had one yesterday aswell, I eat so much junk it's ridiculous :(

    How long have you been at Uni? How is it?

  • Dom -

    Totally didn't reply on my own page...

    ===============================

    Yeah, ur body clock is def borked :o

    I'm okay, eating KFC and getting fat!

  • Dom -

    How you bloody devil are you, matey mate?!

  • Scaredycrow -

    I noticed an article in the magazine that was undoubtedly written by you. :thumbsup:

    The ghrelin thing intrigued me -- I've heard of leptin injections but never ghrelin injections. Ghrelin stimulates hunger and feeding behaviour, so of what use would it be to obese people? :o

  • HaileyRae -

    Well, I don't have any friends, so I have no reason to have a party. :P

  • HaileyRae -

    I have only had one party in my lifetime, which was when I was 6. :P

  • HaileyRae -

    Thanks.
    I'm not doing anything for it, really. Just going out to dinner with my family. That's it, I believe..
