Re: cognitive disconnect - do you "feel" you are reducing risk?

I enjoyed reading the musings above. Thank you for bringing this question forward, Fiver. I echo the sentiments above. Perhaps it was easier for us who saw the strong family history and strong sharing of other traits. When the 23 and me results were in-- the feeling was --duh obviously!.- So learnin...

Re: Introduction and new Dble E

Hi Balrog, I join you when you say you are wired so much like your mother. The same is true for myself and my mother who is in the later stages of AD (and probably vascular dementia). We look alike, and in the past acted alike, had similar interests. People are constantly saying we are twins, and so...

Re: Review: Plant-based sterols and stanols in health & disease

Thank you for posting this! I read mostly the CVD part, and got pretty bogged down. This part jumped out to me/interesting although it is not proven: The current understanding is not that elevated plasma plant sterol concentrations per se increase the risk for CVD, but that individuals characterized...

Re: Sitosterolemia and Me

Resurrecting this post. I have elevated apoB, and blood tests indicating absorption of abnormally high levels of plant sterols (esp very high beta-sitosterol) (along with high synthesis). Along with a family history of small vessel disease in the brain affecting cognition. After reading past posts h...

Re: Multivitamin Pure Encapsulations 950

I'm curious to hear others thoughts on supplemental manganese taken daily via something like a multivitamin. While the element is a required trace mineral, it also acts as a neurotoxin in larger amounts -- this seems at least as sketchy as taking vitamin E, calcium, iron, or copper. Thank you for t...

Re: Multivitamin Pure Encapsulations 950

I have finally run my data through Found My Fitness, and it looks like supplemental vitamin e is a bad idea for me too. Unfortunately I may stop taking the Pure Encapsulations ONE. Have others looking to avoid vitamin E found any combinations that work? I know that I will not be able to maintain fis...

Re: Normal Tension Glaucoma and AD

Apparently this may be true for me, normal tension but a "glaucoma suspect". When I looked it up, Mayo Clinic site mentioned that less blood supply or atherosclerosis may be a culprit. Which of course immediately made me search APOE4.info! Thanks for the articles, and sure I'll add some cu...

Re: Does Alzheimer’s affect the absorption of nutrients and calories?

Is it possible that any of the meds are affecting weight gain? My mom initially lost 20 pound after dementia dx, and was on galantamine for a few years. When she came off galantamine (due to headaches) she slowly gained the weight back, and now is at her middle aged weight again. My understanding is...
