Re: RAB10 - Gene Discovered to Protect Against Alzheimer's in High Risk Population

I’m sure my dad has this, or another, protective gene. He is at minimum heterozygous for E4 and has several suspected risk factors for AD. At nearly 83 he has no cognitive decline, even after having anesthesia twice this year. There is no history of AD or other forms of dementia in his family. I hav...

Re: Diet help. Please post what is working for you!

Susan and JML, thank you for the eating-at-work tips! I enjoyed a low carb smoothie for "breakfast" and my dinner leftovers for lunch today and added a salad. There is a whole table of baked goods and treats in the lunchroom, and I was able to pass them by because I knew I had good foods a...

Re: Diet help. Please post what is working for you!

I'm starting to implement Dr Bredesen's eating recommendations after drifting away from a low-to-moderate carb, high-moderate fat diet. I was successful with diet and lifestyle changes when I was unemployed, but now that I'm working, it's more difficult. I can fast 14 hours without a problem, so tha...

Re: Support Team

Hi Stavia! Many of my challenges to getting back on track are self-induced, but I will need help with meal ideas following Dr Bredesen's protocol. I have the benefit of knowing I followed a low carb diet before, so I know I can do it again. I also have more incentive than I had 3 years ago. I now fe...

Re: Support Team

I just wanted to thank the Support Team for making this site useful and valuable. I have been away from the forum (and, sadly, many good habits) for a couple of years. Upon returning, I am excited to see the forum thriving!

Re: Hello, so relieved I found this website

Welcome! I'm glad you found this forum! You will find so many great resources here and wonderful people who are willing to share their experiences. About genetic counselors: I researched the options for counselors when I learned of my 4/4 status. The counselors in my area seemed to focus on specific...

Re: New study examining the effect of APOE-ε4 knowledge

I had my talk with Doris Zallen last weekend. Even though I have given much thought to genetic testing and its effect on me, I found it beneficial to answer her questions. It was a really good experience!

Re: New study examining the effect of APOE-ε4 knowledge

Thank you for posting this again! I missed it the first time because I'm not active on the forum. But I check in from time to time, just to see what's new and remind myself that my health is a priority.

Anyway, I emailed Dr. Zallen and hope I can participate in the study.

Re: Coconut Oil ameliorates neurodegeneration

SarahAnne - It's great that you are seeing results for your mom! I completely agree with your statement : " With my dad being 79 and the primary caregiver, they don't have the bandwidth to optimize all the variables to the extent that we seek to do. " Well-meaning relatives and friends wou...

Re: A Movie for the Gutsy Ones?

I'm a little late to this thread, but since my dad and I were just discussing whether or not to see the movie "Still Alice," I thought I'd chime in. My dad, who rarely reads books (and certainly not fiction), got the book from someone in his AD support group. He read it and passed it to me...
