Re: Meal & Memory Study in Seattle seeking Apoe 4's

I live north of Seattle so will look in to signing up for this too. Berri - Your condo meeting space sounds like a great place to host an area MeetUp and I would love to attend if I can. Maybe start a new thread to see if others in the area would be interested too. I also just signed up for the stu...

Re: NY Times article on theory that parasitic infection may be reason APOE4 was once protective

I briefly considered majoring in Anthropology and have been intrigued by studies of isolated cultures and the effects on their culture of planned and unplanned contact with "modern" cultures. So some of what Dr. Gupta said seemed to gloss over likely effects of being studied for 20 years a...

Re: URGENT: Biomarker Study Opportunity for ApoE4.Info Members

Is it available in my area of central coastal Florida? The study has not yet been started and appears to be still in the development stage.

Re: Lipo a

How were those measured? 205-75 is a big difference.... I read it can be nmol/L OR something else ...on my lab 75 or less is normal if measured nmol/L Can't speak for Katie S, but my report was by LabCorp, so the 178 definitely put me in BrianR's "overachiever club". LabCorp's website sta...

Re: Lipo a

NF52, have you always had high lipo a since it seems to be a determined factor already? I have been reading on CoQ10...... it seems like it could reduce it...... I’ve only had the one test, but it seems we’re born with a stable number. Your grandpa gave you at most 25% of his genes. My son’s grandf...

Re: Lipo a

Does anyone have high lipo a? I just found out I do and it’s genetic!! It’s a huge factor in heart disease and stroke. Apoe4/4 and now this:( Yep, I'm an Lp(a) overachiever.

"rainy" who lives in not-always-rainy Seattle, asked that I share this short-term study participation offer from the University of Washington. She herself participated in the study and found it worthwhile. The University of Washington is currently enrolling people for a study testing how t...

Re: Hydrogen Sulfide SIBO

...Have any of you fixed their hydrogen sulfide SIBO by now, and if so, how? I was wondering if anyone thinks an elemental diet is to be recommended for HS SIBO.
