I like my brain most of the time, and have a fear of not being able to control my thought patterns (I also have PTSD and anxiety), so I ...

Re: 1-APOE4 GENE

I found out I have 1-APOE4 gene from 23 and Me a couple of years ago. My grandmother developed Alzheimers and it sounds like she had a brother who developed it at an early age. My mother died at 81 and her sister at 82. Both had good cognitive abilities and died from COPD and a Stroke from high blo...

Re: High Calcium Score

I just received a calcium artery score of 255! ... My father died of a heart attack at the age of 59 and had his first heart attack at the age of 52. I am a 69-year-old woman. I thought my good diet and exercise programs were protecting me, but maybe not as much as I thought. I am also APOE 3/4. Hi...

She did well cognitively until she reached her early 80s; I believe she had a lot of cognitive reserve, which staved off the disease until then. Quickly, she dropped into advanced Alzheimer’s. She died in her mid-80s. My aunt was always so g...

Re: Ugh, hit my head again. Ice or no ice?

No concussion or anything, but my crazy habit of hitting my head on the corner of things has struck again. The mild pain lingers. Does ice help or stop a necessary healing process? I wonder whether these bumps can take a toll on my brain or whether it has to rise to the level of a concussion to rai...
