Re: Feel like my time is running out

Hi all. I've lurked here over the years but have never been active. I may have made an introductory post once years ago but, ironically, have forgotten. I'm about to turn 40 in three weeks.

Re: New Member Info - 33, APOE3/4, seeking advice

Hello there, APOE4 family! Long-time lurker, first-time poster checking in with some background and a question. About me : I’m a 33-year-old woman who found out she was APOE3/4 via 23andMe.

Re: APOE4

I am waiting on 23andMe results to confirm, but wondered if having rs2075650(g;g) and rs4420638(g;g) would assume that it is APOE 4/4? I have been reading a lot of wonderful information on this website, but haven't seen an answer. Thank you. I worked from this (see attached screenshot) I hope that ...

Re: New Member Intro - former biotech exec 4/4

Hi June That's so good to hear how well you're doing. For anyone else reading this, if you can't get the Freestyle Libre on prescription, you can now get it in the UK and US just by paying for it. As June says here, it is really enlightening - there are some foods I would have thought were OK, that ...
