Re: Not doing too well....

Hi Julie, Thanks for the suggestion. I have started to look over the website information on homocysteine. I have started on TMG - I am following the Bredesen suggested amount of 500mg a day - the supplement comes in 1000mg tabs so I am splitting the pills - the bottle recommendation is for 1-3 table...

Re: Not doing too well....

Hi Julie, I'll keep looking for information on cabergoline but so far I have found nothing to suggest risk for dementia and cognition. I have cut back on iron supplement in the last week to help with constipation side effect - looks like I will just have to manage the side effects with more dietary ...

Re: Not doing too well....

Hi Julie, I met with my endocrinologist this past week to over my lab results with over 2 months of treatment with cabergoline for my pituitary adenoma tumor. My prolactin is down from 77 to 9.9 (good!) and my testosterone levels were improved though still not what they should be based on the Bredes...

Re: Not doing too well....

Hi Julie, I have not posted on the site since I joined early in 2018 - I have been on the Bredesen protocol since late January/2018 and have had two sets of full labs done -one in Feb/2018 and the second 6 months later in August/2018. All my labs were good except for my homocysteine which went up fr...

Re: Not doing too well....

(((Silverlining))) I know you well enough to know you WILL find your silver lining again. You have blown me away with your strength in light of all that's been thrown your way. And, we've talked about this; dealing with peri-menopausal madness in the midst of your other struggles... THAT, is too mu...

Re: Another personal loss to AD

So sorry for your loss. It was a year ago that I lost my mother. Her dementia was awful - she had to have arm and hand restraints to keep her from hurting herself. It was a nightmare for our family - my sister and grandkids did not want to visit because it was all too traumatic. My father did not pr...

Re: Thoughts on Disclosure? (Who have you told?)

At first when I found out my 3/4 status and a lot of other health issues on my Promethease report I thought that I would keep things in the family and just give them the option of knowing or not knowing. My wife is extremely supportive of the RECODE protocol - my two daughters wanted to know everyth...

Re: new from Wisconsin

thanks so much susanj and anna for the links - I found a lot of information and there definitely appears to be possible correlation for increased AD risk with H63D - I agree with anna that it could warrant more research and discussion.
