Re: AFIb

. Hi Computer15, Have you considered a PreCODE subscription on Apollo Health? Having your lab work entered there would provide a report that shows you which subtype you are. It would also help you to prioritize where to focus your attention, give you supplement recommendations, and also give you ac...

Re: 54 year old APOE 4/4. What can I do to delay dementia at my age?

FloraMaria, Yes, exactly Raw Farms brand! I can get it at Sprouts in Florida! If you can't get in NM, then look for "low temperature pasteurized", NON-homogenized milk. There are a couple brands (MilkKing, etc.) that sell it at Whole Foods I have found online. I still haven't seen such mi...

Re: 54 year old APOE 4/4. What can I do to delay dementia at my age?

You can find cultures online to buy. I make both kefir and Caspian Sea yogurt but recently have found a top quality real/raw kefir at Sprouts that comes from California. It's fantastic and highly recommended. Thanks for the great information, AnnieV. Every time I am in California I purchasethat Raw...

Re: 54 year old APOE 4/4. What can I do to delay dementia at my age?

I read your post. I highly recommend you please read Dr. Bredesen's book, ESPECIALLY for you, specifically pages 119-121. Your concern for breakdown of the BBB is merited. To that specific end test for your homocysteine. Dr. Bredesen shows how that can be lowered if it is high (which I will only pr...

Re: 54 year old APOE 4/4. What can I do to delay dementia at my age?

I've never been in bad shape I think but I started really taking care of myself when I was in my late 40s. I changed to a mediterranean diet, started working out like an animal and lost about 50 lbs. I feel great and at my age I'm dumbfounded at the muscle I've put on. My lipids, BP, A1C, etc are a...

Re: Neurodegeneration—It’s Not the Tangles, It’s the T Cells

That's a Million Dollar Question, I don't know exactly, but I believe APOE4 has the strongest innate immune reaction and I suspect it is fueled by LDL. So I think managing LDL levels is crucial. I would avoid: - foods high on saturated fat - all processed vegetable oils and fats (except cold press ...

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've written for The Penn Memory Center and Being Patient (https://www.beingpatient.com/voice/apoe4-deborah-fries/) and a column in Terrain.org, not long after learning my status in 2...
