If it really is the original Grunt. I would like to pry. Do you think all the IGF is possibly responsible for your health issues?

That being said, I don't think in general is responsible for my health issues. However, at some point, I was sold by a renowned source something he called "Receptor-grade" IGF-1, and this stuff didn't provide any of the effects of IGF-1. After using that ****, going back to normal IGF-1 didn't provide any results at all either, even using stuff I knew was really good. It's like that stuff broke my insulin or IGF receptors. Or both. I suspect it was the much feared IGF-1 receptor binder that someone (I forget whom) had written an article about, saying it should be avoided at all costs. After that, all the problems associated with insulin resistance started cropping up.
If any of you go back that long, you may recall (or dig out of past threads, if you are that dedicated, LOL) that I used IGF long before any AAS. As a matter of fact, I was AAS-free when this problem hit. But with the effects of insulin resistance (fat gain, mostly), I simply couldn't do it as a "natural" anymore. AAS helped me very much, obviously, especially that after 14 years of natural (and "natural", using only IGF for assistance) training, my body was so primed for them. Anyway, long story short, I used AAS as a great stopgap measure, keeping me in shape for a few years until the insulin resistance turned into type 2 diabetes. To top it off, my incompetent doctor didn't see my diabetes on my blood tests, even with glycaemia readings 2, 3 times above normal, for a year or more. This did a lot of damage to me that I am still feeling today. That includes the cancer, whose incidence in diabetics is much, much higher than in the non-diabetic populations. I might write an e-book about the biology of cancer and its relation to diabetes sometime, if I have the energy for it. Doctors don't understand any of it, they just know that "the incidence of cancer among diabetics is higher". That's really not much understanding, and requires shedding light on.
I am currently writing an e-book about the biology of type 2 diabetes and all the extremely useful information that doctors do not know about, and that's not just details. There are crucial things doctors aren't trained to know and acknowledge about this disease that are a game-changer. There are also major implications for bodybuilders and any users of pharmaceutical products, and finally, the e-book explains exactly why there is an epidemic of "diabesity" in America, and it has to do with much more than being lazy, although of course, what people eat is hugely important in there, if not exactly the way we bodybuilders think about it.
You know what the funny thing is? I've been nearly 4 years out of the gym now, and when I fall asleep at night, in that state just between being awake and dreaming, I still see myself in a gym doing squats, or chin-ups, or bent-over rows... When bodybuilding is part of you, it looks like, well, it never leaves. I miss it. I'm writing that e-book for all of you guys, trying to do what I can to spread the important information that may help some people falling into the same kind of trouble that happened to me.
Do you ever wonder why some people are members on these forums for a number of years, and then disappear? They "move on" from bodybuilding. Yet, if you are any good at it, you must wonder... Why would anyone ever move on? It's healthy and it feels great. I think health troubles hit a hella lot of people around bodybuilding circles, just like other people, and eventually they don't have the energy or the drive to keep going, even though they would like to. It certainly is my case, and I know I'm not alone.
Bottom line, I suggest that everyone here be very careful what you put into your body. I knew IGF-1 LR3 was safe, and I still know that. However, what you get sold as "IGF-1" could be anything, especially these days. And that goes for absolutely everything, including AAS and supplements. My advice is, don't hunt for bargains, hunt for quality. Because once your health is gone, it can be really hard to get it back.

hang in there grunt. there are some exciting things happening in cancer research.
don't have high enough post count to post the link but here is the full article:
Scientists find treatment to kill every kind of cancer tumor
Researchers might have found the Holy Grail in the war against cancer, a miracle drug that has killed every kind of cancer tumor it has come in contact with, the New York Post reported.
The drug works by blocking a protein called CD47 that is essentially a "do not eat" signal to the body's immune system, according to Science Magazine.
This protein is produced in healthy blood cells, but researchers at Stanford University found that cancer cells produced an inordinate amount of the protein thus tricking the immune system into not destroying the harmful cells.
With this observation in mind, the researchers built an antibody that blocked cancer's CD47 so that the body's immune system attacked the dangerous cells.
So far, researchers have used the antibody in mice with human breast, ovary, colon, bladder, brain, liver and prostate tumors transplanted into them. In each of the cases the antibody forced the mice's immune system to kill the cancer cells.

hardship [h:dp] n
1. conditions of life difficult to endure
2. something that causes suffering or privation
I've known plenty of people with the same problems (my father was diabetic, my grandmother died of cancer).
Neither of them were pricks who went around lamenting their circumstances and taking it out on other people.
My dad passed from an infection he got when medical malpractice caused him to develop gangrene. Both of his legs were amputated, he still didn't act like a douche.
The reason for the difference in behavior? See Trace Adkins quote.
I don't care what your circumstances are, it is not an excuse to treat people poorly. Especially people that are trying to help you out.
No one pried into his personal life, merely stated that powder is cheaper and more versatile. He acted like a child and began to b!tch about his life and act like a douche.
Why would powder form affect him negatively but caps don't? Even if it does, why is it a reason to treat people like he did?
03-29-2013, 05:25 PM
Yep, that's me, and I still am. If those dudes didn't treat me like I was some POS because my post count is low, none of this BS would have happened.
And for you, jimbuick, the "special case" on this board, if I had come under my old handle and stated "no powders", I can *GUARANTEE* you that, that would have been "OK Grunt doesn't want powders". Instead, I come here with a handle with only 27 posts and I come under the holy inquisition because I don't want powders, and *OWE* whoever is posting in the thread an explanation, and not wanting to give one is what, being a douche? Really? Do you realize what it is you are saying.
03-29-2013, 06:26 PM
Nobody called you a douche for not wanting to give an explanation. Everyone called you a douche for being a tool, see below if you need your memory refreshed.
03-29-2013, 07:06 PM
Nice out of context quotes!
Oh, and it's "your" reading comprehension...
And none of those posts are what got people riled up, what got people riled up is when I expressed my disagreement with having to explain my health situation as the reason I didn't want powders.
And again you avoid the main point of my previous post. If I had posted under my previous profile, "No powders" would have been 1,000 times sufficient and no Great Inquisition Into Why This POS "grunt" Dude Wants No Powders. And you know it's true, so you know what to do next.

Anyone know where I can get caps of this?

I don't care if you believe it is your post count that made your answer unacceptable. You may be right, you may not be. I don't care either way, you are avoiding my main point.
You acted inappropriately and now you're trying to justify your rudeness by pointing out typos?
I think you know what to do next.
