Re: Muses Labs Cognitive Testing and 13 vials of blood

Muses has set up an account for me in BrainHQ. Is anyone familiar with this site? . Hello, Maddanw2ill, I set up an account with Brain HQ about a year and a half ago, but only started seriously training with it since I heard Michael Merzenich, its creator, speak at a conference this March. He is a ...

Re: Anyone know what the outbox is?

Thanks for posting this J11, and to SusanJ for the reply. I had a message that stayed in my Outbox for days, and I kept trying to "send ".

Then it magically switched to "Sent". Now I know why.

Re: Packed lunch ideas?

I was hoping that folks might be willing to share their packed lunch ideas. When I don't have time to prepare lunch, and need something quick, I grab an avocado. Even though avos can be expensive, I find that a ripe avocado makes a good meal just on its own....or you could add it (just before eatin...

Re: Excellent summary of recent evidence re. ketones to address Alzheimer's

Hey, Floramaria, are we related? My TG runs 50 with HDL 109. You're too young for CAC, but mine was zero. At first, I cut fruit out, but my mom questioned this decision, so I added it back other than bananas, raisins, dates, (no dried fruit, only fresh local fruit). Reviewing my rural maternal fami...

Re: Excellent summary of recent evidence re. ketones to address Alzheimer's

Dang! Don't you worry about your lipid numbers at all. With those numbers, you're a rock star. TG/HDL ratio = 0.38. Looks to me like your lipid cycling system is in OUTSTANDING shape! Thank you, Russ. I got the test done, but didn't actually know what the numbers mean in relation to each other :D ....

Re: Excellent summary of recent evidence re. ketones to address Alzheimer's

Floromaria, like you my A1c topped at 5.8 despite FBG hovering in the 80s and fasting insulin level of 2.. Thank you, Katie, for sharing your experience and your numbers. It was a shock to me to have that 5.8. Interesting that you had that too. Your more recent test result of 5.3 is reassuring. The...

Re: Excellent summary of recent evidence re. ketones to address Alzheimer's

Thanks so much, Juliegee! I greatly appreciate this simplified version of where I am going. I am pretty sure our clinic could order the fasting insulin, and maybe , considering my 5.8 result on A1c , it might even be covered by insurance. but whether it is or not, they can order the test and draw my...

Re: Excellent summary of recent evidence re. ketones to address Alzheimer's

Kudos to us for being early adopters on all of this! I am trying to be an early adopter, and have been reading the threads on the Forums as quickly as I can absorb them, but I am still really perplexed. ;) The article you linked to here talks about "sustained ketosis" for three months and...

Re: Media Request

Hello Emily,

I decided in May to be tested. I'd be happy to talk with you about how I made the decision and the impact that has had on my life and the lives of family and friends.
