Re: Apoe4 /4 a new genetic variant of Alzheimer’s ??

Great info and discussion! One of the things I found most frustrating in the coverage of this study is the experts who doubled down on telling people NOT to find out their APOE status, with statements like it will cause nothing but grief; and there isn’t anything you can do. How can we increase stu...

Re: UK Sunday supplement article

Hello, I am writing a piece for You magazine, the Mail on Sunday supplement, about gene testing and really hoping to interview someone from the UK who has learned that they are APOE 4/4 . I'd be interested in the impact of this and whether it has been something you're glad to know or would prefer n...

Re: New to the site from Deerfield Beach, Florida

I follow a diet since a year and a half very similar to what is described in the Dr Bredesen book. I am 65 years old and suffer from essential tre...

Re: Statins when you’re homozygous APOE4

I don't currently know my genetic status but have 3 family members with Alzheimers on one side and terrible cardiovascular disease on the other. I have chosen not to test until such time as this would change management - for now I am doing everything in my power to prevent both cardiovascular disea...

Re: Apoe4 /4 a new genetic variant of Alzheimer’s ??

Hello everyone, forum newbie here. I learned I was e4/e4 last year after doing 23andme. One maternal grandparent had Alzheimer's, the other did not and lived to be 92. On my father's side, both grandparents were life long smokers starting as teens and so both died in their 60s, too early to tell wh...
