Re: apoe4 children have lower IQ`s ?

I grew up poor in an environment of abuse (physical, emotional) to my brothers, and (emotional ) to me from one parent, but with the love, concern and affection of the other. Went to a school of well-to-do children with sufficient nutrition and no worries that allowed these children to do well. I li...

Re: 4/4 and diabetes

If you have another done, with your life style, I bet it will be good. It would give you peace of mind. If not, that is also knowledge, and you use it to figure out what to do next. And yes, I turn 60 next month. Hi Mike: Yes, you are right, I'm seriously considering it. And as you say, it might be...

Re: 4/4 and diabetes

[quote="mike"]IMHO your A1c is fine at that level, since your IR is okay. Especially since you are doing low carb and your blood levels do not vary much during the day - meaning your glucose spikes are low and any damage caused by high glucose is less. In comparison, my fasting blood sugar...

Re: 4/4 and diabetes

The no-carb stew plus some macadamia nuts later actually seemed to settle my stomach. My blood sugars back up to 115 this morning though ketones still over 5. Weight up to 201. It is thought that stem cells get activated after fasts, so gaining some weight back at this point should be a good thing,...

Re: 4/4 and diabetes

Day 20. My wife is making beef stew; I'm planning to end the fast this evening. I was barely down below 200 lbs this morning. I would ultimately like to get down to around 185 and maintain at that level. My blood sugars are finally down to 90 and my GKI is below 1 for the first time. Hi Mike: You a...

Re: B12 and APOE4 - a gene-micronutrient interaction

Hi Roxanne, Thanks, I am also ambivalent about many of my supplements. Regarding a plant-based keto diet, I'm not a good person to ask as I don't practice keto, just plant based. You might consider downloading the free "keyto" app developed by cardiologist Ethan Weiss at UCSF. I have no e...

Re: B12 and APOE4 - a gene-micronutrient interaction

Thanks, Aphorist, my B12 plasma levels are never that low (always 1500 or above), even when I stop supplementing for a few days before a test. (Perhaps I need to stop supplementing for a whole week before a blood draw?) Recently, I was asked to increase my daily dose due to my MMA levels indicating...

Re: New Labs comments welcome

Hi Roxanne. My experience with A1c is identical to yours and I use two meters, both calibrated to lab results (meaning I test in my car before I walk in and get a blood draw) so I’m confident I do not have an A1c of 5.4-5.6. I seldom go over 105 and even that is for an hour or less. I haven’t read ...

Re: New Labs comments welcome

Roxanne, are you seeing much variability in you glucose during the day? If not, I’m wondering why you are taking so often... with everything that you are doing, I wouldn’t think you would need to measure at all. Are you trying to see how you respond to individual foods?[/quote] Hi Mike. Yes, I was t...
