Re: Is low fasting insulin level bad for you?

Thanks, Theresa. You’ve reassured me! I used to be insulin resistant, but now I’m insulin sensitive.

Re: WSJ Article featuring ApoE4.Info

Theresa, thanks for putting yourself out there! I didn’t know you are a retired Navy commander. Thank you as well for your service to our country. (I was a Navy brat.) I did a search on the title with quotation marks around it. That worked. I’m glad I found out about my 4/4 status. Had I not done so...

Re: Is low fasting insulin level bad for you?

Initially I was very happy but after seeing the insulin flagged as out of normal range I looked into it and found a recent study concluding that women with below normal fasting insulin and a much higher risk of dementia that the women with fasting insulin in the normal range. This is deflating news...

Re: Sleep

Here's the web page for an email I just got from Chris Kresser with the subject line: "My game-changing sleep hack."

He's discussing a sleep hack that has significantly improved his sleep, especially his deep sleep. It's not a cheap solution, however.

Re: Sleep

TheBrain, yes the low levels of oxygen are likely to be the culprit for the white matter atrophy and I've yet to find definite evidence that the white matter "heals" after APAP or if the high altitude environment changes. Thanks, Katie. If you ever do come across evidence that the white m...

Re: Mold and mycotoxins

Thanks, circular. I'll definitely check out this podcast, as well as any prior ones I find. I watched a stem cell docu-series a while back and was quite astonished by what I learned.

Re: Sleep

These desaturations lead to major white matter deficits in the brain. Katie, could these white matter deficits suggest white matter atrophy? I still don't have an answer (and maybe I'll never have a definitive one) as to what has caused my total cerebral white matter atrophy. But I had desaturation...

Re: Mold and mycotoxins

Thanks, Brain! Dr. Kelly did not indicate that Welchol was bad for you. By the way, what was the result of your NeuroQuaint MRI and did you need to do a treatment? I'm glad to hear that about Welchol. Thank you. :) My MRI w/ NeuroQuant showed happy hippocampi but atrophy in other areas, especially ...

Re: Sleep

This has really motivated me to work on maximizing deep sleep. Interestingly, for me it plummets each time I try to use mouth taping, although I would still like to confirm that with something more accurate. What strategies are you using to maximize deep sleep? How interesting (and unfortunate) tha...
