Hi all, first entry/post! I'm so impressed by this forum: from the depth and breadth of information to the respectful tone, one that's at the same time warm and lighthearted. While I haven't done an ApoE4 test yet, I've applied my Functional Health Coach (Kresser Institute) reading of my biology ('hair trigger' immunity, slightly high blood lipids, parental history) to formulate a reasonable suspicion.

And oh, right, as a Canuck near Vancouver, Canada, we may eventually be able to do inperson meet - ups.

Inspired by the Bredesen Protocol, I'm currently retooling my coaching service (Primal Wellness) to offer support to those who feel they are somewhere on the AZ trajectory.

Finally, hoping to join the Book Club on May 22, 2021! (I believe I know who to reach out to)

Welcome, LawrenceJ!

Always happy to (virtually) meet a Canadian on the forum. Thank you for the kind words and for sharing a bit about your own path to finding this forum. We have members who, like you, have chosen for now not to test for ApoE4, feeling that the news would not change the actions they are taking to continue to enjoy a healthy, purposeful life. We encourage people to think about the decision to test with this section from our Welcome page: Thinking About Testing?

Here are some resources that may be of interest, including a guide to our sometimes clunky software!
The Primer is written by Stavia, a practicing M.D. with ApoE4/4.

The How-To Guide shows how to quote members (use the " icon in the upper right of any post) so they get an email notification of your post. It also shows how to use the Search function for topics, and how to subscribe to topics of interest.

Our Wiki Index provides a diverse array of resources curated by members. One that may be of interest to you as you look to offer support to those concerned about Alzheimer's or other dementias is ApoE4-Aware Health Coaches

And I'll also "quote" JML, the moderator of the ever-growing Book Club, so that she sees you are interested in joining this Saturday's meeting.

Hope the borders between the U.S. and Canada open soon, and those in-person meetings can again happen!
