Help I have a friend who is a gym goer Im not sure of his quantity or how long he has been taking steroids, but stopped recently because he had really bad neck pain. No dr or scan, ultrasound etc showed anything. Put on huge pain killer amounts didnt help alot but felt after about six weeks some relief. Until today when he thinks a prior knee issue has flared up. If this a result of steroid abuse how long before it heals? Im pretty sure he wont touch them again. He can handle all over aches and pains but these last two injuries have had him off work.
I come from a family of diabetic’s. My younger sister is the only one insulin dependent with a pump.. I take 500 mg of metformin 2x’s a day. one with my morning meal and the other with my evening meal or around 6:30. My sugars have been under control, but it seemed to take a week or so of the pattern in order to keep it under control. I don’t seem to have the real highs or real lows that I had before. However, I have learned always check my sugar before taking the medicine. If it is 100 or less, I do not take the medicine. Thanks for the info
If you want to become an Olympian, you've got to be fairly trained and in good shape. It's a long, arduous path, but it will be worth it when you stand on the international stage. To become an Olympian, you'll need to do plenty of long-term, professional level training in a specific Olympic sport. Don't neglect other aspects of your life, but be prepared to put in long hours of practice and competition, work hard at financing your dreams, and commit to a remarkably healthy lifestyle. If you're ready to commit most of the next few years to a sport, you're already starting with the right mindset.
