Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

Another Gundry pub. Looks like a lot had lectin/gluten issues. http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/129/Suppl_1/AP354.abstract Adiponectin is a protein hormone secreted by adipose cells and is thought to be a precursor for the inflammatory cytokine TNF-alpha. Although low levels of Adiponectin are as...

Re: E4 hits women much harder

I wonder if the data are adjusted for age. Couldn't tell in the abstract http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... 5/abstract. Men statistically die sooner than women and maybe the 4 heart disease component kills them off even sooner and before they get AD...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

Julie, He talked about it in a podcast - either Jimmy Moore or Kiefer. There were Italian and Spanish studies where people consumed a liter a week. I believe the plant material helps endothelial function. Here is a G Scholar search http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&q=endothelial+function+u...

Re: Warnings for a HFLC Diet

Julie, http://www.drgundry.com/faq/Heart-Health/ Heart Health CB from Seattle asking: Should people with the ApoE 3/4 genotype completely avoid alcohol? Also, I heard red wine can can reduce high fibrinogen. Is this true? A glass of red wine a day is fine. The red wine won't have much affect on fibr...

Re: Warnings for a HFLC Diet

Do I understand that you have been monitoring some markers in such a way that you see improved lipid markers during periods when you're adding in 1 high carb night per week to an otherwise ketogenic diet as compared to fully ketogenic alone? Yes. However, "improved" is subject to my inter...

Re: Warnings for a HFLC Diet

What I'm concerned about is test interpretation. My sense is that all the published data relate or a "normal" or SAD diet. Specifically there is a difference when the body is putting fat into storage or taking it out. In Davis' talk, he notes that somebody in weight loss mode (which I also...

Re: Small LDL-P as a predictor of CAD (and progression)

Russ, Small LDL-P is what Davis is talking about wanting <200. It is reported on an NMR Liposcience LDL particle count test. Lp(a) is a different marker, generally thought to be genetic, however Dr. Davis says he's been able to drive it very low on those with high levels as he considers them "p...

Re: Let's flip Alzheimer's the FINGER

Hi Stavia, I'm guessing there are no data, so no need to slink away! I'm sensitive to this as I ended up with idiopathic or lone afib about 10 years ago. Fortunately I've been able to keep it pretty much in remission with significant doses of magnesium along with potassium & taurine. What I lear...

Re: Let's flip Alzheimer's the FINGER

Hi Stavia, My understanding is that exercise, especially cardio/endurance exercise, has a reverse J or U shaped benefit function. Some data I've seen, at least on long term marathoners, show a propensity toward calcification. Where would you estimate the "sweet spot" would be? My own appro...

Re: Gene Strategy to Fight Alzheimer’s Clears a Hurdle

Julie, Thanks! Unfortunately she passed in Mar '13 at 87. The last number of years she had dementia and/or AD. The WM treatment was pretty successful. It was in '06 and while it didn't technically put her in remission, WM never was an issue in her later years. She ultimately succumbed to a respirato...
