Re: Statins and Dementia studies

For those who don't tolerate statins, in this interview Peter Attia recommends alternatives to statins (no side effects): Pcsk9 inhibitors - very safe but expensive Ezetimibe - cheaper but less potent Bempedoic acid - very safe and expensive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dyid7vWO0zI Maria 4/4 Hi ...

I think we should do our best to keep microglia flourish, calm and happy.

Re: Blue Light Blocking Glasses

This is confusing to me as I have read for the most part that it has to be a orange/red tint to work the best for ApoE4/4. Hi JanHoo, I don’t believe that blue blockers have to have amber lenses. But the ones I’ve been using for several years do. Mine are from Spectra479. They work well for me. You...

Re: Panicking 41yr old grown up man

I was just looking at the Apoe4 site to see how many of the people who were active when I joined and it looks to me as if many of them are still active.

You’re welcome. I just edited my previous post to add that I don’t know anything about those biomarkers in the study you linked to. It may be interesting to keep an eye on what information comes out related to them, and how useful they prove to be.
