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.

I’m a new member of the forum. 51, male, live in the US. 4/4. I have Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) and I’m curious if anyone else has been diagnosed in this group.

Re: Welcome!!!

Hello. I am in my 20s but learnt I am a 4/3 carrier a few years ago. I've been lurking in this forum for a while but decided to make an account after today's news. I am less worried about my own health, as I am confident dementia will be less of a worry in 40 years (though I am still taking healthy...
