    There’s formal training and education and there’s experience.
    She has quite a bit of all of it.

    There really are some nurses that are better at diagnoses than the doctors are. Remember, only 50% of all doctors graduate at the top of their class. Then there are the other 50%. But even the bottom 50% can have someone better than the top 50%. More compassion or more of something else.

    If the doctor is the brain of the hospital, then the nurse is both its backbone and heart. Good doctors know this, and treat nurses with the respect they deserve!

    Reminds me of an old joke.
    A patient is paying his doctor a visit, describing his symptoms, and mentions that he first consulted his pharmacist about the problem.
    The doctor huffs, “And what stupid, idiotic thing did he tell you to do?”
    The patient replies, “He told me to come see you.”

    agreed.
    .
    but the word “diet” does not mean low calorie whatever. It means what you normally eat. Some groups of people regularly have grasshoppers or meal worms in their diets. Others omit pork or beef. … I am on the see food diet. Also known as “that’s looks interesting. What is it?”

    Diet – it is what you eat. It must be long term not short term.

    “Remember, only 50% of all doctors graduate at the top of their class. "
    .
    I have read that many go into other fields and even the ones who didn’t finish at head of the class are more likely to check other sources ere making a diagnosis than the ones who remember when they remembered all and think they still do.

    .
    I’m guessing this is from yesterday?
    .
    From my cute little aging word processor:
    [Pre-12th century. Via Old French diete < Greek diaita “course of life”]

    “Diet – it is what you eat. It must be long term not short term.”
    .
    As if saying, “I’ve been on this diet for three hours now and haven’t lost a pound,” doesn’t make perfect sense.
    .
    digging deeper or maybe shallower, since we are no longer looking at the roots of the word, rather the common uses or definitions where they differ:
    .
    “1. what person or animal eats: the food that a person or animal usually consumes "
    .
    [so ice cream isn’t part of one’s diet if one only eats it every other day]
    .
    “2. controlled intake of food: a controlled intake of food and drink designed for weight loss, for health or religious reasons, or to control or improve a medical condition
    a wheat-free diet "
    ,
    “3. regular intake of something: a continuous or daily experience of, or indulgence in, something other than food
    living on a diet of soap operas and game shows
    .
    [Oops, this one also includes indulgences but only for nonfood diets]

    Oh, wait, you are talking about Marcy mentioning no “diets” for small children because they still need to grow. Note the quotation marks around the word, so she is using it in the vulgate, the common meaning of the word.
    .
    So she’s saying don’t restrict the food intake for or of or to children to keep them skinny because it will result in stunted growth and ill health.
    .
    Note from this, the way Marcy is using it does not require one to be as knowledgeable as thee or me to understand the meaning.

    Sometimes I don’t see all rhe words or symbols. Those quotation marks are closer to the left rather than the centre or right of the word balloon. So they are invisible until tomorrow or until someone points them out.
    .
    But thank you. I learned a new word. Vulgate.
