Re: Help with my labs

She mentioned a CAC but then offered to do further blood testing for a better picture....Is there a test for oxidized cholesterol? Hi wocky; There is no right or wrong answer. I agree with Tincup that your traditional lipid results look great. The Coronary Artery Calcification test is a CT, so some...

Re: What are the Top 10 Books on APOE E4 and Alzheimers

And it was a 45 min online lecture from Amy Berger that sent me strait to the MCT oil at 1 a.m. as the message hit home. Hi Inga; There are strong opinions for and against MCT for E4s (singles and doubles). This is something we call N=1; each of us is running our own experiment with one study subje...

Re: What are the Top 10 Books on APOE E4 and Alzheimers

(I went to biohack.com and the bredesen biomarker test was $8,425.00 which seems high to me. ) I'm not sure that AHNP (now Apollo Health) does ALL the biomarkers mentioned in Dr Bredesen's book.
