Re: New Member intro

68 year old recently retire high school Life Sciences teacher. My mom, her dad and my father's mother all had Alzheimers/dementia...and I have been fully aware of the possibility in my future.

Re: New member

My numbers are great, and I've had two calcium CT scans of my heart and both times got a zero score. Thanks, statins and early intervention with a heart healthy diet and steady exercise! I also recently had an elevated A1C and have brought that down by giving up sugar (I still eat fruit) and upping...

Re: Meeting Alzheon Executive this week, send your "Burning Questions"

I plan to learn more about the company and their ongoing programs when we meet, and would be happy to potentially incorporate some of your "burning questions" about Alzheon and its ALZ-801 trials in my interactions. No guarantee, but I'll do my best Hi June, I don’t have any burning quest...

Re: LDL and fats, two new studies

Anyway, back to my original question - What is the advice for someone who cannot eat much of the usual monounsaturated fat sources except olive oil, one avocado a day and some pumpkin seeds? Is there any downside to drinking a lot of olive oil? As someone who drinks olive oil, I hope there is not a...

Re: Celebration Thread TrueBinding Galectin-3

I had worked with another company targeting Gal3 as an Alzheimer's target, but they gave up on it. TrueBinding's CEO disappeared at the beginning of this year and has been replaced. Not a great sign, but he also posted very unusual "success stories" from his clinical trials. This is not a...

Re: Alzheon Raises $100 Million to Advance ALZ-801 Development & Commercialization

Has anyone else not been able to tolerate the HomoTaurine? I have tried several times to take a 50mg Super Smart capsule on a full stomach and I end up running for the Zofran or having to make myself a peanut butter milkshake which defeats the health benefits. If I can't tolerate this low of a dose...

Re: Plasmalogens- exciting new evidence

Will Plasmalogens help prevent coronary artery disease at all? I have one E4 but also fortunately a couple protective gene Snps against Alzheimer's so I am not as concerned about cognition as I am heart disease. Unfortunately, my CAC score is too high for my age. Hi rep, I have heard Dr. Goodenowe ...
