Re: RE: Re: Carl Zimmer on Klotho: "One Day There May Be a Drug to Turbocharge the Brain. Who Should Get It?"

Sign me up! A simple shot in the belly to avoid AD... and be smarter . :D YES, please Me, too! (Hmmm...I wonder if it is possible to check Klotho status using 23andme data?) Yes there is.

Re: sleep

Hi Merilee. This is a question best asked of your doctor. Sleep issues are also a risk for AD and there is no black and white answer we can give you. Only your doctor can weigh up all your personal factors and help you make the right decision.

Re: RE: Re: Help understanding my lipid profile and statin choices?

Thanks very much for your informed insights, Stavia. I’m interested in the sterol panel to monitor changes in desmosterol as a cognition biomarker. I don’t understand the cholesterol absorption issues yet, but plan to self-teach it from the Attia-Dayspring material next week. I found more labs offe...

Re: RE: Re: Do I need B12 injections?

My B12 is 1512 pg/mL I always get high results: 1500, 1523, 1914, 2000, and then this most recent one above where I deliberately avoided supplementing for a couple of days beforehand. After looking at my results again, I corrected my Hcy. It is 6.1 Im confused w...

Re: Help understanding my lipid profile and statin choices?

Hi Bladedmind. I have my sympathy for your dilemma. A couple of thoughts: Rosuvastatin tablets can be cut easily. It doesnt matter hugely if the halves are not exactly equal. An option could be to start on 2.5mg EOD.( This is not specific medical advice for you, just a thought). I had awful brain fo...

Re: RE: Re: Do I need B12 injections?

so my advice is to track some blood markers, make the change and test again. Hi all, So here I am again with a new MMA test a year later. (My ferritin is now 39.) This time I made sure to avoid taking any B12 two days before my test: Methylmalonic Acid: 2.5 (normal range is 1.9 or lower) Tricosanoi...

Re: Vibration in the chest upon waking

Hi Mountainman, welcome.
This is an issue you should consult your doctor about. We are unable to give specific medical advice on the forum.
It may be innocuous, it may be serious - I urge you to seek a medical opinion in person.

Re: RE: Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

I went off bHRT over the summer because of problems with bleeding. Hot flashes have been horrendous, so I've gone back on but at a lower dose--.025 E--which seems to be helping a little. But the progesterone is SUCH a problem for me! I can't tolerate the oral at all. I don't want a Mirena (too many...

Re: Finger print patterns and AD

I came across this in an AD book written by Elwood Cohen M.D. It almost sounds bogus so I thought I'd bring it up. Cohen states that " finger print patterns provide an early marker in identifying AD years before its onset". If the ulnar loops point away from the thumb, toward the little f...
