Re: Cholesterol is a passenger, not a driver - Dave Feldman

Tincup - I recently had an Oxidized LDL score of 54 in a Reference Range of 10-170. (Unfortunately, I am in the 75th percentile for my CAC score. I am 66 and the total score is 87 but still classified Mild. Hoping I can greatly slow progression. I have had health challenges the past few year that m...

And even A1C can have pitfalls. Here is a Chris Kresser response as to why A1C can be unreliable.

Re: New Member Intro ; ),

I highly recommend it for E4 carriers who are concerned about glucose levels/ or are prediabetic. Very Happy to share that as of 4/22/24, my A1c dropped to 5.5 for the first time, and LDL dropped to 99, APO B at 80 mg/dL (<90 desirable), so all back to NORMAL range after diligent efforts! 8-) Very ...

Re: Ivor Cummins interviews Steven Gundry about ApoE4

Would it make sense to supplement butyrate to promote a healthy gut microbiome or would that not work? I think Gundry's Bio Complete 3 supplement is a butyrate supplement. Some of his patients have talked about it, but I've not taken it. The following is from Gundry's book, "Gut Check." “...

Re: High A1C and low insulin?

Question for you: I just had some blood work done and was sadden to see my A1C at 5.6! I never eat sugar and eat a lower carb diet. More work to be done. But, I am confused by my blood markers as my fasting glucose was 80 and more importantly, my insulin number was 2.6. Here is a response I wrote o...

Re: Aluminum as a causal factor of Alzheimer's - Introduction of myself to the community

More evidence aluminum is the cause of Alzheimer's . My husband Dennis N Crouse has done a write up about this study. He goes over the limitations of the study but ore importantly, he explains how the findings support aluminum being the cause of Alzheimer’s, and therefore, if people with Apoe4/4 an...

Re: Confirming ApoE4/4 within medical system - a benefit or a risk?

I've been trying to decide if it would be worthwhile to confirm this result within the medical system (with either my MD or ND). I understand that the direct to consumer kits can have less than a 100% accuracy rate. So, I'd like to confirm, but I have some reservations around doing this within the ...

Re: Why do different types of saturated fat affect the ApoE4 brain differently?

What I mean by that is: When I take c8 MCT with my coffee or tea, my brain gets a boost of energy. It gives me a noticeable boost in cognitive performance. My understanding is that this saturated fat is processed differently than others. i.e. Unlike other fats, c8 does not go through the lymph syst...

I'm a mouth breather for a different reason but never considered taping.... I've taped for 8 or 9 years. I did an inadvertent experiment a few years . I went sleep with a Polar H10 beat to beat recording heart rate monitor on connected to a recording app. These are graphs of heart rate vs. time tha...
