Re: Well isn’t this website just great…

Found out I was APOE 4/4 about 8 years ago from a 23andme test. I was already in good cardiovascular health (long distance running) but the test then prompted me to make some lifestyle changes (work/life balance, sleep). Reading about Chris Hemsworth prompted me to take a look for updated guidance ...

Re: Klotho - rs9536314

Hello and pleased to meet you. I'm APOE 4/4 and I'm interested to know if anyone in this group managed to find a genetic testing service that definitely covers rs9536314's genotype because 23andme used has stopped for some stupid reason and I can't gain access to the information needed in my raw da...

Re: New here? Some Best Practices

Always suspected I had genes for ALZ, since my four paternal aunts all had it, and last year 23 and Me confirmed that I hav...

Re: New member BC, Canada

Hi everyone, I found this site via my results from Promethease. My 23andMe results say I have one copy of the APOE4 and my results from Tellmegen state I am at high risk of AD (when I imported the raw data from Tellmegen into Promethease it does show I have both 3 and 4). I read that 23andMe only r...
