Hi Philippine1, Tincup’s advise about taking it one step at a time is good. Since you know your homocysteine is out of the target range, you could follow the supplement recommendations for bringing that one biomarkers down. I assume “down” since few people have out-of-range low homocysteine.) For most people, it is fairly simple to bring Homocysteine down with Supplements.Phillippine1 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 07, 2022 12:02 pm Thanks for the new-comer suggestions. Genetic testing and recent labwork on homosysteine etc are all pointing to developing AD fairly quickly. I'm glad I stumbled upon Dr Bredesen's Protocol but am completely overwhelmed with the number of supplements and dietary changes. I'm glad for this site to help me with this. Are there practitioners who specialize in helping people with the Protocol?
Then….Depending on what your diet is like now, you could ease into the dietary changes, selecting one area to focus on. A good place to start is with reducing/eliminating simple carbohydrates if those are part of your current food intake.
It is important that you make changes at a pace that works for you. As you become comfortable with one change, you can add another. It is easy to become overwhelmed by trying to do everything at once. That is a lot to take on! Stress exacerbates cognitive problems and is itself is a contributing factor to cognitive decline. Generally it is a good policy to pace yourself and focus more on congratulating yourself for the changes you are able to make in the present, rather than being overwhelmed by other changes you may want to make down the road.
You say your lab work points to developing Alzheimer’s Disease fairly quickly. If you are not already experiencing cognitive decline and are concerned based mainly on your biomarkers, rather than symptoms, you certainly have time to move in the direction of a lifestyle that will support longterm cognitive health.
