Re: I guess I'll be taking a statin

Over the past 5 years, the masks have improved and more specialists are starting out at low pressures, allowing an auto-adjusting machine to determine pressures. My husband failed initially and remained off for years, as they set too high for starting pressures and gave him a full-face mask. Please ...

Re: I guess I'll be taking a statin

The gene is rs12506228; the bad allele is A. The result was in a "FoundMyFitness" report. From the ad for FMF I thought it would tell me what supplements would be best for me but that wasn't what it turned out to be at all. WhatNext, I have the same rs12506228 A/A gene (on top of ApoE4/4 ...

Re: apoe4, breast cancer and sleep apnea.

Back in 2014, I posted on sleep apnea's correlation with Apoe4 (https://www.apoe4.info/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=366&p=2999#p2999). They discovered that those with Apoe4 were thinner, not the typical body type associated with sleep apnea. Dr. Bredesen mentions on his cognoscopy list to rule...

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. ...

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: 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...
