Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

does anyone happen to know when is the best time to measure testosterone in postmenopausal women? I need to do fasting labs, and I usually use a compounded cream once a day after my morning shower, so I can use it right after my shower and before the test and get it going up (how long before it reg...

Re: Lab markers for vascular inflammation (even with a CAC of zero?)

money doesn't fall from the sky, and there are real potential downsides to just removing teeth when there's no acute infection. I'm not convinced we have the right answers yet, which I envision as less invasive, less costly, and still effective in mitigating potential risk. I completely agree. Ther...

Re: Lab markers for vascular inflammation (even with a CAC of zero?)

I have chronically high hsCRP, but a zero CAC score and my Lp(a) is good (very low and not thought to be affected by lifestyle), as is OxLDL. Because of the high hsCRP, I'm wondering if I could have inflammation in my arteries and vessels, just not plaque? I am not an expert on the other CV markers...

Re: Advance Directive for Dementia

This is a great resource. I have already had a similar discussion with my husband, but I like the thought of including this (or something similar) in my advanced directives.

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: Help on finding supplements that are not in pill form requested...

Perhaps not a direct response to your query, but here goes... I've heard of caregivers that open the contents of capsule supplements into smoothies. As long as they don't have a strong or bitter taste, may help reduce pill burden. Nordic Natural has a liquid omega 3 product. Not sure of DHA/EPA cont...

Re: MyHeritage Is Aquiring SNPedia and Promethease: A 'Must Read' for Users

When I accessed circ's initial link, a firefox alert popped up, telling me that over 90 million accounts were compromised on the MyHeritage site in 2017. And why would non European Prometheus users have an earlier opt out for deleting their data? No European DNA whatsoever, or those who live in Euro...
