Hi BenF, thanks for taking the time to assemble various concerns about and supporting arguments regarding a zero carb diet. It is an interesting post. Thank...

Re: Apoe4, Statins, Cholesterol, APOB, LP (A)

Does anyone know what science stands on treating high cholesterol parts in APOE4 people? Hi Kay1855, I don’t think there is really a consensus about treating high cholesterol, or even what constitutes “high”. To me, your numbers look pretty good. I’m not a doctor, though. My sense is that even amon...

Re: Beyond APoE genetic testing

Does the protocol work for people with these genes? Or would gene testing be a depressing exercise that wouldn’t offer anything I could proactively do about it. Kirsti HI Kirsti, I have a friend who inherited the genetics for one of the forms of familial AD. She has been following the ReCODE Protoc...

Re: Acetazolamide & Methazolamide Update

Interesting research and approach. I hadn’t heard of this before. But mice that are engineered to have Alzheimer’s-like pathology are different from humans.

Re: Ozempic

Now, I’m thinking maybe I should wait until I’m fully in menopause to start? But I don’t know if that’s positive or negative for brain health.

Re: Prodrome blood test results, initial and over time

A couple of months ago my parents and I met with Dr. Goodenowe's health coach (?). She was very unprofessional and dismissive of my parents' concerns. After the meeting, they decided to stop using Prodrome…. Hi Debbie, I’m sorry to hear that you and your parents had a bad experience with Dr. Gooden...

Re: Prodrome blood test results, initial and over time

Thank you for the update. I am wondering how you were able to get a meeting with Dr. Goodenowe? Gail 3/4 Hi Gail, I think that I was able to get the follow up consultation with Dr. Goodenowe because even though I’d made it very clear via email before my consultation with Justine that my objective i...
