Re: ACE trial: Arterial Stiffness, Cognition and Equol

Thanks for announcing, Nancy. Just as an aside for those interested in arterial stiffness. I just did a pre and post 20-minute HIIT session using Exercise With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) and dramatically reduced my arterial stiffness. I have the original iHeart gadget that tests pulse wave velocity and I...

Just to clarify, Dr. Bredesen is moving away from this recommendation in lieu of the p-tau-217 test.

Re: Labcorp's p-tau 181 pricing

Thanks for the info on p-tau 181. Where can my doctor order p-tau 217? Do you have a link? Someone else may have better information, but from what I understand, the PrecivityAD2 test test is currently available now. You can learn more here. The downside is that p-tau 217 is not reported as a single...

Re: Labcorp's p-tau 181 pricing

Does anyone know the price for Labcorp's p-tau 181 test? I'm not sure about the p-tau 181 alone, but it's offered as a part of three test package called the Amyloid-Tau-Neurodegeneration (ATN) Profile as described here for $626. However, I would encourage you to wait for the p-tau 217 test which is...

Re: ApoB question for lipid nerds

The pathophysiological mechanisms by which the Tsimane seem to be protected against CAC development are unknown. Numerous potential explanations exist, and might relate to coronary artery disease risk factors, subsistence lifestyle, genetics, and inflammation or immune regulation. Tsimane have low ...

Re: ApoB question for lipid nerds

After I saw the video, I thought that minimising oxidised LDL should be the best kpi. Do you agree? I have to confess I haven't seen the video yet, but from what I've learned I think ApoB is far superior because for a smaller cost, you can assess all of your atherogenic particles- IDL, VLDL, Lp(a) ...

Re: ApoB question for lipid nerds

The discordance and hypothesized benefit is that lower ApoB with the same LDL-C would require lower LDL-P. And consequently with lower particles carrying the same cholesterol, the LDL particle size would be larger. As such, there would likely be less small dense LDL particles in the total populatio...

Re: ApoB question for lipid nerds

Thank you for weighing in, JNB! I've come to the same conclusion that you have that ApoB does reflect LDL-P vs. LDL-C. I like your graphics but do question why you would want the LDL pizza box empty. From my perspective, for the lowest risk, wouldn't we want it loaded with LDL-C?

Re: Is there research showing benefit of low fat diet for apoe4 phenotype?

Why? HDL similar, insulin almost the same, glucose slightly higher, but similar for all, triglycerides very similar. Why only LDL and ApoB differ (elevated in APOE4)? It's well known that E4 carriers hyperabsorb dietary fat. The leading theory is that as the ancestral (original) APOE allele carrier...
