Re: Sleep

Plumster, you found exactly the model that would monitor and record your oxygen levels overnight. My home sleep study was "normal" but when I viewed the report the oxygen levels decreased to 82% ; so definitely review your report. My lab study had oxygen levels down to 65%, before they wok...

Re: Sleep

This is a really interesting episode of the Broken Brain Podcast with sleep medicine dentist Dr. Mark Burhenne. Circular, thank you so much for posting this talk. I listened to it yesterday and it is very relevant for me. I have a scalloped tongue (I learned from a dentist last week) and tongue tie...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

In the early days of this lengthy thread, there was a small French study analyzing the decreased mortality with HRT correlated to the estrogen receptor SNPs. Turns out my 101 y/o, 3/4, Met/Val mom hit the jackpot, correlating with 0.6 mortality using HRT, marking over five decades of estrogen. Dr. G...

Re: Sleep

Magnesium L-Threonate knocks me out. It’s a variant of magnesium that crosses the blood-brain barrier. Within 20 minutes of taking it I start yawning. Sometimes I wake up and it’s morning. My dreams are vivid. I’ve had trouble sleeping for years, I had obstructive sleep apnea and didn’t know. Now w...

Re: I guess I'll be taking a statin

WhatNext, I am your same age, small body frame, high HDL, 3/4, previous widow...but I am on a very minimal dose of simvastatin. Despite a zero calcium scan at age 64, my lp(a) is double normal and have two other cardiac risk factors (hypertension and sleep apnea). Unexpectedly, I experienced side ef...

Re: Exercise-Very Encouraging Study. What is your Exercise Prescription?

I'm a 66 y/o woman, life-long high intensity aerobic exerciser gradually decreasing max heart rate with age. Currently I swim outside 2-3 times a week for ~50 minutes, spin class 2-3 times week and a 30 minute on the row machine or stepper for 42 minutes. Because of chronic arthritic knees, I can no...

Re: FrankA - new member

While you're waiting for further testing, you might consider if your CPAP treatment is optimized. Have you noticed a marked sleep improvement over the months of starting therapy? Since I've been on CPAP for years now, please feel free to PM me should you have CPAP questions. Depending on the severit...

Re: High red counts and APOE4

As previously mentioned sleep apnea could be the etiology of the higher RBC. I have sleep apnea and after treatment, my slightly high RBC count has declined to normal since I am no longer having nightly oxygenation desaturations. Having Apoe4 ,despite being thin, not the stereotypical sleep apnea pa...

Re: Lipo a

I should have labeled the 75 mg at Lab Corp and 205 nmol/L, both double normal. Just to add to confusion, once Quest reported zero ("not detected") lp(a), but after this report, the result has been consistently 150-200. As expected, no change with statins, niacin, lysine or vitamin C. Once...
