Re: Might saving synapses preserve cognition in AD?

Perhaps this C1q pruning is a factor in the brain changes seen even before birth and through early adulthood in APOE4's: http://www.alzforum.org/news/research-news/does-apoe4-risk-begin-womb http://www.wsj.com/articles/alzheimers-gene-affects-early-brain-development-study-suggests-1468440000

Re: new e3/e4

Hi Mac--welcome to the forum. I am a 3/4 like yourself and fairly new member as well, though I came to my knowledge of my APOE4 status because of cognitive issues I was having (memory problems, aphasia, brain fog) which began in my mid-30's (I'm now 48). After not getting much help from the medical ...

Re: My APOE journey

Thanks Stavia...Wolfie is all good :) Finally went in for blood draw yesterday and as expected they were unwilling to do much more than the basic tests until I have my first appointment. However, I think I convinced the tech to get the doctor to order the homocysteine test. Good news is that I shoul...

Re: My APOE journey

I've finally set up an appointment with a primary care doctor locally who is accepting new patients, but unfortunately the first available opening is on October 13. In the meantime, they are willing to let me come in for some lab work in advance of my first visit. In addition to a lipid and metaboli...

Re: My APOE journey

FYI, when we were at dinner with Terry Wahls last week, she talked about successfully treating vets with TBI, PTSD, depression & other brain issues at her VA clinic with Phase 1 of her protocol in her book. There is now a 6 month waiting list to get in. It was noisy, so hard to hear, but she me...

Re: My APOE journey

Wolf, for improving sleep if you aren't already using one may I recommend an eye mask or eye pillow, and perhaps trying different kinds Goldilocks-style. When I temporarily misplaced my eye mask a few months ago, I fell back to using a nice little eye pillow with a small amount of dried lavender in...

Re: My APOE journey

Wolfie, I collated many talks from the AHS into "eat food as close to it's original form as possible." So, wheat, well, we don't typically eat it unless it's milled and processed into something else. So, I agree with Stavia, start with the Med diet, then maybe take out wheat and see how i...
