Re: Calcium Supplements

I've taken calcium supplements for decades to absorb oxalate as I do have a bad issue with it. Now I'm wondering if that contributed. Would drinking something like goat milk kefir likely be less of a problem for my arteries? Whole foods are always a good choice. I can't eat any dairy (even A2, like...

Re: Statins when you’re homozygous APOE4

I'm having that statin conversation with my family doc in August. One last thing, that has been mentioned in other threads, is to look at sterols to understand if you are a hyper absorber. Something else might work better than statins for you, like Ezetimibe. If you haven't already listened, here's...

Re: Artificial Sweetener Drinks

If people want to choose to harm themselves in the face of that science, that's their business. They can't say they weren't warned though. The reason some may get emotional, rationalize their choices is most often because they are bound a habit, if not the addiction, they react when that bad habit ...

Re: CNN article about a guy who is tracking and lowering ptau -- anyone want to try?

If anyone is interested in hearing Dr Sanjay Gupta's process with Dr. Isaacson (whose work we mention on this forum), it will be on shown on “The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper” on CNN on (tonight) Sunday, May 19, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. I think many of us can relate to the feelings you get going through...

Re: Apoe4 /4 a new genetic variant of Alzheimer’s ??

In addition to the explanations so far on this thread, I thought this was a well-written summary of the process and findings, along with comments from other researchers to put it into perspective. And here's a quote I wanted to highlight, because we already know that merely having amyloid and tau do...

Re: Statins when you’re homozygous APOE4

Dr. Bredesen's quest is prevention and reversal, not "management". Do understand you are preaching to the choir here. I'd say most of us here have seen the devastation of Alzheimer's on our loved ones. I currently have 3 family members struggling with dementia (one of which lives in assis...

Re: Rapamycin prevents age-related brain vascular deterioration in rats

Fascinated that we have a similar profile with the good triglycerides and Crp but the not so good ldl and apoB -please let me know when you get them done again and see if they have gone down ok? I didn't eat coconut everyday, so not sure if it will bring the numbers down enough. That's why I added ...

I agree with Plumster that you just need to supplement for a bit. Stress, viruses and other illnesses can deplete zinc.

Re: Rapamycin prevents age-related brain vascular deterioration in rats

I have some strange high/low readings in that my APOB is a bit high at 122, my triglycerides are great 0.95 but apoCIII is really high 10.94 (I never heard of this before). But my LP(a) is v low just 7.7 and Crp is just 0.37. LDL is 4.88 (185mg/dL). I am going vegan a few days a week to try and get...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

However, there is research quoted by Dr. Funk that indicates HRT does cause breast density, which leads to increase risk of breast cancer. This is all so hard to decifer - I need to balance my APOE4 risks with my risk of breast cancer. Any further readings or suggestions? Just curious, did you have...
