Re: Blood test for beta amyloid 42/40 ratio

Interesting but could be scary. What did it cost?

Re: Apoe 4/4 and high triglycerides

My brother had very high trigs and is apoe3/3, so there may be more at work here than your apoe4 status. He was able to reduce his trigs with prescription fish oil.

Re: I need help with my 23andme report...

Unless your parents have been tested for apoe you have no way of knowing who you got each from. All you know is one parent has a 4 and one has a 2.

Re: I need help with my 23andme report...

Specifically, I need help with the Apoe4 report. I can't tell if I am a 3/4 or 4/4, or possibly, neither. Here is part of the report. It says I am "likely" an Apoe4 carrier. What can I conclude from this? Do I need further testing to determine if I am a 3/4 or 4/4, or neither? Thanks. APO...

I was genotyped with the V3 chip. When I searched for the SNP in Raw Data, it showed up.

Re: New ApoE4 protective SNPs

I cannot find the rs2303697 SNP in the SNPedia, but my 23andme data shows I have C/T at that point. From other posts, I see that the T allele is protective (i.e., reduces the accumulation of myoinositol in the brain). Does anyone know if the wild type is T/T? I'm not well versed in this, but lookin...

Re: ApoB, small-dense LDL-C, Lp(a), LpPLA2 activity, and cognitive change

So small LDL-P is a good measure to use for sdLSL? Thank you Julie.
