Re: Addendum to Two month N=1 experiment: 250 mg NMN + 50 mg pterostilbene

Over the past week or so I've listened to some current David Sinclair podcasts/youtube vids --- picked up a couple of things that have me convinced to go back to NMN. I'm heading out for a show, can't grab the links right now, but one was with Rhonda Patrick. He does into the differences between NR...

Re: Addendum to Two month N=1 experiment: 250 mg NMN + 50 mg pterostilbene

Thanks much for the addendum! I didn't see the original but have been taking NMN, getting ready to switch to NR for a variety of reasons, and didn't know about the MTHFR issue with choline. I just upped my methyl Bs (not related to this, have a pesky gene or two that says I probably have issues wit...

Re: I guess I'll be taking a statin

I had a follow-up appt with my GP yesterday, having been on Zetia for two months. He’d ordered a follow-up cholesterol test and at the same time I had a test for apolipoproteins B and A-1, which I’d bought on Walk-in-Lab. I’d read that the ratio of those two numbers is a better indicator of risk of...

Re: Two month N=1 experiment plus questions: 250 mg NMN + 50 mg pterostilbene

Thyroid I'm not sure the TSH drop is all that significant. My TSH wanders all over the place. But having both of them high is significant. I'm wondering if at my lowish BMI, do we expect TSH to be in the 5's or is it time to increase my thyroid meds? All I can say is wow, with a TSH of 5, I would b...

Re: Two month N=1 experiment plus questions: 250 mg NMN + 50 mg pterostilbene

No, my lymphocytes and platelets are also low. When we were trying to get my thyroid meds adjusted right, at one point my meds were too high and my WBCs and platelets, which had been dropping ever since I started restricting calories about 15 years ago, got down to just under the reference range an...

Re: Two month N=1 experiment plus questions: 250 mg NMN + 50 mg pterostilbene

Have you looked under the hood at free T3, T4, and thyroid antibodies? Re. the WBC, mine are also low, but just slightly below the reference range. You're getting down there at 3.3. I'm guessing your neutrophils are low? My understanding is that a little low is OK (nothing to fight) but too low can...

Addendum to Two month N=1 experiment: 250 mg NMN + 50 mg pterostilbene

This is an addendum to my last post (Sep 08, 2019) in order to correct an omission. I neglected to report that 5 days before my NMN+PT experiment, I began creatine loading and the evening before my experiment start, I began supplementing with GNC's Triple Potency Soy Lecithin 1200mg / day. So, just ...

Re: How do I stop freaking out about this?

Hi Daydreams, With all these great suggestions, you've probably already found some measure of peace about this. But there's one last aspect no one seems to have mentioned, and that's the march of medical research. Since the genome was first fully sequenced, our understanding of how it all works has ...
