Re: How to proceed? - M92 - E3/E4

Talking about what Dr. Atul Gawande calls "values and preferences" in his book Being Mortal: Illness, Medicine and What Matters in the End may be a gift to all of you now and in the future. Thanks! I've ordered the book. Though I dealt with my mother's end of life dementia years ago, now ...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

Why was there a focus on MCT for 4/4? Is it an alternate brain energy source? It sounds like MCT won’t affect ApoB levels the way coconut oil does…at least in his opinion. What he told us is in the transcript, that is what we know. The book he mentioned he is writing is out in March. "Is it an...

Re: Overwhelmed

Hello! My name is Lora. I'm 55 y/o. I am adopted and recently found my birth mother who has Alzheimer's. Since then, on a whim, I decided to do the genetic test and found out I am 4/4. A few months before that, I started using a CGM and realized that I'm likely prediabetic as my fasting #'s were ty...

Re: Blood sugar issues

What blood sugar levels should I be aiming for after meals? What is considered TOO high? I'll convert to mg/dL for US readers. 6.6 mmol/L is 119 mg/dL, 6.4 is 115 & 5.4 is 97. Those glucose elevations don't bother me. I'd like to see the 5.4 lower. A couple of thoughts. I've found that 15 minut...

Re: high cholesterol

Hi Holly, You have lower LDL than my 62 year old 4/4 wife (by 40 or 50 points). Our doc, Steven Gundry, thinks she's just fine. Her redacted labs as well as consult transcript are here. All our 10 prior labs & transcripts are here. Oxidized LDL might be something to look at. This is controversia...

Re: Interesting/sobering twitter discussion (exercise, ldl, diet, cvd etc)

In another group I'm in they pointed out his carnivore diet was full of processed food. My 30,000' take: guy presented with afib (which could have been from chronic fitness); they check him out and see blockages (we have no idea when these occurred). they perform CABG. 4's will spike lipids on sat f...
