Re: 3/4 new here with high LDL after 3-months keto

Since you tolerate nuts well, you might experiment with finding some nut or seed you could use to prepare your own nut/seed milk. Most packaged ones have all sorts of added junk that allows them to use very few nuts and thicken the product with things I don't want. Being both lazy and adverse to wa...

Re: 3/4 new here with high LDL after 3-months keto

What I’ve discovered is that everyone is different, and we just have to find what foods work best for each of us. It looks like you’re doing great with blood glucose which appears at least in the low-carb community to be a higher priority than LDL when TG is low and HDL is high. I applaud you for n...

Re: 3/4 new here with high LDL after 3-months keto

It been a while and wanted to provide an update on my n=1 experimentation Thanks for all this, apoe4thebetter. As you can see from my sig, I'm a 3/3, so I'm not sure how that factors in, but I felt some kinship reading your lipid numbers. I just had mine done, because my TC and LDL-C have been risi...

Re: Magnesium reaction??

Mag threonate made me crazy. I had hallucinations and what felt like near-fatal anxiety. I'm one of the people here who chose to never use it again.

eggs and choline

Hi all, I've been listening to the podcasts with Dr. Bredesen (and Julie G) celebrating the release of the new book, and I've heard several times now about the high value of choline in the diet. Which brings me to eggs. I am in the midst of reintros after an autoimmune protocol elimination phase (I ...

high HDL

Hi everybody, Happy New Year! I've recently had some labs done for a life insurance application, and one of my numbers was flagged as high: HDL. I'm not sure what, if anything, to make of this (and I hope they don't use it as an excuse to crank up my insurance rates). Some numbers, all nonfasting: T...

Re: Importance of sleep interview by Rhonda Patrick

I guess I should listen to the interview, but I, too, find this subject horribly depressing. I am lucky to get three hours of solid sleep a night. After that, I wake up every time I roll over, I think. Sometimes I get up and read, because it feels stupid to just lie there. Some nights are worse than...

Re: mag threonate "bad trip"

For whatever it's worth, I can take magnesium glycinate with no issues. But I've had to give up all forms of hormone therapy because I can't tolerate the progesterone in any delivery method and can't take any form of sleep aids. I discussed this with Dr. Anne Hathaway (hormone FMD) last summer, and ...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

I went off bHRT over the summer because of problems with bleeding. Hot flashes have been horrendous, so I've gone back on but at a lower dose--.025 E--which seems to be helping a little. But the progesterone is SUCH a problem for me! I can't tolerate the oral at all. I don't want a Mirena (too many ...
