Re: Dietitian needed Niagara Falls NY/ON area?

Ok following Dr. Bredesen as much as possible. The problem seems to be I levelled off at about 20 pounds lighter than I was. Trying to gain healthy weight and struggling to do it safely. There is only so much plant-based items I can consume in a day :lol: and fast for 16 hours. 4/4 was about 165 no...

Re: DHEA SUPPLEMENT

My Functional Med doc recommended a variety of supplements based on my genes and labs. One is DHEA. Levels should be 200-300 I believe but mine is 45. I’m APOE4/4 and trying to be proactive with prevention and protocol, but I’m worried supplements like DHEA may be good for my APOE4/4 AD risk, but d...

Re: Low ferritin

I had low ferritin without anemia. I continue on a daily low dose iron supplement, with a stable ferritin of 55. Taking iron with vitamin C is another way of getting better absorption. I was hoping to have more energy with the increase in ferritin, but unfortunately, no.

Re: preventative supplements while asymptomatic

I'm looking at the recode protocol basic plan (pg. 234-235 in my book), and there are a lot of supplements listed. Are there any supplements that I should take preventatively? I'm 36 yrs old, asymptomatic, ApoE 3/4, no first degree relatives with cognitive decline yet, one grandfather with Parkinso...

Re: determining which type of alzheimer's predisposition

I recently discovered I'm ApoE 3/4 and am still reading Bredesen's book and learning a lot about Alzheimer's. I'm currently 36 yrs old, asymptomatic, and have no first degree relatives diagnosed (one grandparent had Parkinsons and Alzheimer's). Is there any point, or is it even possible, to assess ...

And have other triggers for CIRS be...

Re: Diet. Saturated fat for gene

Thanks so much Sara. I’m looking at the ketofle. Diet now. Looks doable. Glad I can still have bacon. Butter and the saturated fats. Do you know anything about cardiovascular risk and apoe4? Heard that’s something that should be monitored as well. Dr Bredesen recommends using meat as a condiment, a...

Re: Omega 3 update

Well not an update as such but in one of the videos by DR. Rhonda Patrick from foundmyfitnes.com I believe she mentions people with Apoe4 may benefit from supplementing with salmon roe or krill oil . The reason being is that with this gene omega 3 DHA has a very hard time entering the brain. But a ...

Re: New member intro

This is where I saw the info on the ketones: https://www.drperlmutter.com/study/human-apoe-isoforms-differentially-modulate-brain-glucose-and-ketone-body-metabolism/ I test ketones occasionally with a mojo meter. Hi Steve; When I followed your Perlmutter link, I saw this in the abstract: Interestin...
