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...

Re: Worsened Lipids from Adding Eggs?

Ps one needs a significant amount of heavy alcohol intake to raise MCV above normal. This amount of alcohol will cause GGT to be above normal as well. A couple of glasses of wine wont do it.

Re: Worsened Lipids from Adding Eggs?

Hi WifeofJoel Most of us dont overly stress about our lipids, as there is no strong correlation with AD risk. Especially at your age I personally wouldnt factor lipids into my strategies at all. I recommend you step back and look at the big picture in terms of your strategies. I have written many ti...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Its all n=1. I wanted to share this because I'm unexpectedly blown away by the difference in how I feel, sleep and how much sharper my cognition is within 2 days with a dose increase from 25mcg to 50mcg. I suspect there is a threshold effect in my brain, and if it is a 4/4 effect, others may be hel...

Re: RE: Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

I think, in general, we should listen to our bodies feedback. We are just beginning to understand differences between people based on genetics. I'm glad I rejected birth control pills based on subtle differences that I couldn't even verbalize, but knew they made me feel worse. Now knowing that I ha...

Re: RE: Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

So wonderful to hear this, Stavia!!! I understand the desire to reduce and I think it makes good physiological sense. Our reproductive systems were not meant to work into perpetuity... BUT if menopause is a symptom of aging and aging is one of the greatest risk factors for AD, it's kind of tempting...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

...no brain fog whatsoever. Feel normal again. Totally normal. All those wasted weeks unnecessarily of feeling awful. (Sorry, Tapatalk bugged) Lessons: I am clearly very oestrogen dependent in terms of sleep and cognitive function. As a 4/4, this might be applicable to other 4/4s. It is a very subtl...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Sleep and brain fog, my experience: When I went into menopause age 53, the only symptom was waking every sleep cycle and not being able to get back to sleep easily, if at all. Had a car accident after weeks of this. Took a leap of faith and started HRT 50mcg patches, within 2 nights sleep was restor...

Re: Lipids & Sat Fat Question

Hi mb00 and welcome. ApoB assay is a chemical method which measures the number of apoB molecules in a unit volume. Each LDL particle has one. LDLp assay is done with the serum going into a little MRI machine, and uses a surrogate measure of resonance to calculate the number of LDL particles. Obvious...
