Re: What is considered atrophy in a brain structure per MRI volumetrics (NeuroQuant and Neuroreader)?

I neglected to mention that the radiology clinic I went to for my MRI with NeuroQuant does still have my scan from two years ago in their system. I did talk to a support person at CorTechs yesterday. She said they don’t determine whether clinics charge for reports to be re-run or for newly available...

Re: What is considered atrophy in a brain structure per MRI volumetrics (NeuroQuant and Neuroreader)?

Indywoman, thanks for posting this information! I agree with you that knowledge is power. I’ve called the radiology clinic where I had my MRI with NeuroQuant done, and I’m working through my questions. I’ll probably call CorTechs tomorrow because the person I spoke with didn’t agree with some of wha...

Re: Gut Bacteria

It’s notable that a high fat diet decreases Akkermansia muciniphila , but in most instances, the article refers to the “Western high fat diet,” which is high in saturated fat. My understanding is that saturated fat is what causes an increase in LPS in circulation, so perhaps following a ketogenic d...

Re: Bad experience with propofol

Does this suggest I shouldn't use this drug again? Might I have been overmedicated? Or is this saying something about the state of my brain? Of course, I can't help but wonder if my ApoE4 status is partly responsible for what happened. As a pediatric intensivist I sedate children and adolescents al...

Re: Gut Bacteria

Those two words are darn close. :)

I have your same concern about SIBO. I had been diagnosed with hydrogen sulfide SIBO. Mine seems to be at bay (not that all my digestive symptoms are gone), but I certainly don't want it to come back.

Re: Gut Bacteria

The Brain, I’m trying to drink Concord grape juice and taking cranberry extract daily but I’m not certain it will work. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6223323/ Thanks, Surupe. Interesting article. Your interventions are certainly worth a try. I’m reluctant to drink Concord grape juice...

Re: Gut Bacteria

Surupe, I don't have an answer for you either, I'm sorry. However, I'm wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing what you learned about increasing Akkermansia. According to stool testing, I'm low in that.

Re: STAT: “ The maddening saga of how an Alzheimer’s ‘cabal’ thwarted progress toward a cure for decades”

Great article. Thanks for posting it. Are there still studies going on based on the amyloid hypothesis? I haven’t been following the research all that much, as I’ve been focused on addressing my known root causes.

Re: Bad experience with propofol

Wow. Thank you Circular, Slacker, Nords, Tincup, Short&Right, and Emma for your responses. I'm blown away by how helpful they and you are. Short& Right, it's good to know that there's nothing inherently dangerous about the combination of propofol, gabapentin, and clonazepam and that these ot...
