Re: 38F 3/4 Worried Re:Bloodwork. Input much appreciated.

Well, I just got my annual physical and it's a mix of good news/bad news. The good? Fasting glucose is 76 and my A1C is 4.9% (down from 5.6% in 2016). Also, my homocysteine is 6.6%, and while I could stand to raise my vitamin D from 36 (on it), it's not terrible. The bad? My cholesterol scares me. ...

Re: Introduction and Help With ApoE4 Diet

The plant-fish keto diet works well for many here, but there are also some of us who are whole foods plant based and not restricting whole grains or legumes. My insulin numbers are in the optimal range and I fast over night 12-16 hours. The Mediterranean diet is another option.

Re: New Research on Blood Brain Barrier and APOE4

Rapamycin is the anti-rejection drug that is cited. It can be used as a prophylactic to never develop AD. It also is an anti-aging drug to extend lifespan and keep one from developing cancer, Parkinson’s, etc. The drug is real and it works. In my opinion, Rapa is the greatest drug anyone could take...

Re: Re: From Dr. Rammohan "Ram" Rao

Circular, I've read that natural sea salt is helpful for stomach acid.
