Re: In Medical News Today: What causes Alzheimer's? Not toxic amyloid, new study suggests

If one were looking at the research field as a whole today, globally, which biomarker is the predominate leader in practice for AD related trials? A beta-amyloid tracer or tau tracer? I'm looking for a back of the napkin type answer here, 60/40, or 80/20 with some % using both. If money were no obje...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

I bumped into this thread yesterday which has a google spread sheet for opening tracking biomarkers on this forum. Would allow practitioners, businesses, etc to review your data, so keep that in mind from a privacy standpoint. https://www.apoe4.info/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2367 Then there is ...

Re: Genesis of the 1500 IQ Humanoids

Musings. DNA is perfect software. (or the best we know of yet in the universe) DNA is error correction. DNA is data storage that withstands the passage of millennia. DNA takes care of itself. What we have done with technology thus far in a few decades does give us a god complex, but it is not withou...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

So consider both doing labs and tracking how you feel to see how your experiments go. Yes! @SusanJ. In the past few years, I have started my own personal n=1 tracker which covers variables likes: General musings/mood/wellbeing/depression Headaches/Migraines (which I suffer a TON from) Headache Inte...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

In my post above, I linked our master post where we've linked to posts with redacted copies of our labs. The PULS test is a recent addition. In these labs, Gundry tests for many interleukins, heart measures of inflammation, TNF-alpha, adiponectin and on and on. At one point, he tested to see how we...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

I intended my remark as a mild clarification to soften a potentially insulting rhetorical flourish. I did not expect you to double down by explicitly doubting the thoughtfulness and intelligence of your fellow forum members. That was not at all how my comment was intended whatsoever. It referred to...

Re: Changing Habits

Everything is habit. EVERYTHING. A cue, a ritual, a reward. I appreciate seeing these habit resources and I would offer up this book, which of reading hundreds if not thousands of books and papers in my life, I consider to be the most influential work I've read on habit. Permitting me to see the wo...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Hi dfmcapecod, I remember that thread from the summer! I guess we're all waiting on that diagnostic test to come along. :? There was another flurry of news about blood and spinal fluid tests for AB and tau recently. If those come to fruition I suppose we could all evaluate how our lifestyle interve...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

Gundry's approach is very much based on his clinical experience. Theresa & I have posted links to seven of our consults with Dr. Gundry, including transcripts of the consults and labs, if you are interested. We haven't posted our two most recent consults as are involved in caregiving for a seri...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

I haven't seen much in the way of "blind faith". I think the entire spectrum of Gundry opinions here is represented by thoughtful, intelligent people. I'm working on coming to that same conclusion but am not there yet. What would you argue is the most compelling intelligent argument that ...
