Re: Hormone replacement therapy - cyclical necessary?

I am on HRT and taking continuous estrogen... I'm still mystified why some give advice to cycle post-menopausal progesterone to better mimic pre-menopausal progesterone cycles, but we don't hear any corrollary advice to cycle post-menopausal estrogen to better mimic pre-menopausal estrogen. I think...

Absolutely! I would even take an unnatural substance as long as it's safe :)

Re: What are the most important blood tests?

I don't recall what the test originally cost and I can no longer access my FL doctor's portal. My NP has a monthly fee and she arranges deals to cover labs like this that come out of my monthly fee ($89). I did go to the Great Plains website and you can order online without a doctor at https://grea...

Re: Folate-Deficient Hypermobility Syndrome

I liked this article. "Hypermobility syndrome [has a] suggested prevalence of 2-57% of the population" suggests that additional science does need to be applied to defining the syndrome. But their summary of the interactions of MTHFR, folate, and folic acid with our bodies was quite intere...

Folate-Deficient Hypermobility Syndrome

I know some members here have hypermobility issues. I thought I'd bring this August pre-print to your attention:

Re: What are the most important blood tests?

Why didn't I ever think of invoking my family history to get some of the tests I want? A little trick I learned in my masters in management program. If the conversation is going no where, you learn to come at it from a different perspective. ;) It paid off after I had an OAT test and my former doct...

Re: What are the most important blood tests?

And sometimes it's easier to get doctors to test if there is a family history of something. Why didn't I ever think of invoking my family history to get some of the tests I want? I will often say "I'm at risk for …" but clearly that's not as persuasive as "My father suffered from …&q...

Re: Still trying to make sense if it is worth APOE4 to get a vaccine for Shingles and VZV?

I didn't see a study on this using Shingrix as a variable associated with functioning level since it was approved in 2017 and suspect that no one has studied this because a 2-dose drug would be expected to perform well and any study wouldn't be likely to have a surprising result or add to clinical ...

Re: Still trying to make sense if it is worth APOE4 to get a vaccine for Shingles and VZV?

I think I was vaccinated for chickenpox when I was a child (but can’t recall), and trying to determine if it is worth getting another vaccine based on the data coming out about the connection between Alzheimer’s and HSV1. By the way I tested and currently have the HSV1 antibodies. Personally, it wa...
