The above explanation is correct (disregarding the hard to read and unprofessional dialect) but just in case anyone was wondering:
chromatin-negative= Just a quick way of knowing it was a boy. The term applies to the nuclei of cells in normal males as well as those in individuals with certain chromosomal abnormalities
Turner syndrome patients are also chromatin negative as well though....
I didn't know a complication post-meningitis was lack of humor.
Ah, didn't read the last line. Yeah, that is taking it a bit far
yall are haters. this is the first explanation that has ever made sense to me
How does chormatin-negative indicate a normal cell? Isn't chormatin just condensed DNA?
According to this paper most individuals with Turner Syndrome are chromatin negative: "One of the initial laboratory procedures used to confirm or rule out this diagnosis involves a sex chromatin determination from a buccal smear. Cells from the lining of the mouth are stained for the presence or absence of X-chromatin or Barr bodies, which represent a portion of an inactivated X chromosome. The typical Turner’s syndrome patient, who has 45 chromosomes and only one sex chromosome (an X), has no Barr bodies and is, therefore, X-chromatin negative.
This abnormal X-chromatin negative finding in the majority of Turner’s syndrome females is similar to the result found in a normal male, who also has only one X chromosome, and differs from the X-chromatin positive condition observed in the normal female, who has two X chromosomes. Occasionally, the patient with features of Turner’s syndrome is found to be X-chromatin positive."
to add to the above, free testosterone is aromatized to estrogen leading to breast development
Sensitivity is the rate of true positives. Beta is the rate of false negatives.
I don't understand what the question is asking... can someone please explain it to me?
Patient doesnt eat protein, shes chubby. What does methionine have to do with this?
Essential amino acids (something i came up with)
1. "Three HAL fans will try meth"
a. Threonine = Three
b. Histidine; Arginine; Lysine = HAL
c. Phenylalanine = fans
d. Valine; Isoleucine; Leucine = will
e. Tryptophan = try
f. Methionine = meth
They're saying there is a lack of good quality protein -> slight nutritional deficiency. She may have acquired weight but it's not because of protein. So they're specifically asking what amino acid she might be missing due to her subpar diet. Since essential amino acids are those that the body cannot make itself, out off those listed, methionine is the essential amino acid. It's on page 81 of FA 2019.
correct me if I'm wrong please :)
For anyone confused trying to follow @usmleuser007's comment --
Essential amino acids mnemonic "Ah, Three fans will try meth"
Ah = arginine, histidine
Three = Threonine
Fans (phans)= Phenylalanine
Vil (Will -- German accent pronouncing English word 'will') = valine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine
Try = tryptophan
Meth = Methionine
Why does @hello and @usmleuser007 mnemonic contain arginine? That isn't in the PVT TIM HaLL mnemonic for essential amino acids...
please use standard English. I cannot understand a word of what you are saying.

hahahaha i fucking love both of you
likely not "lil b" as 2-4 times as many cases are found in whites than in persons of other races
lil b not a referent of race; cf. lil boo, lil baybay, lil bowow, &c.
I disagree. Google "lil b" for images. See what you may discover.
Anyone know why there is hepatosplenomegaly?
