Healthy lifestyle and the risk of Alzheimer dementia

I have been otherwise preoccupied as of late, but this seemed like just the kind of research needed to support the notion of Alzheimer's Prevention. This is just the abstract, I'll see if I can find the whole study. Findings from 2 longitudinal studies Results During a median follow-up of 5.8 years ...

Re: Any NORCAL folks interested in a get together?

I'm going to cancel this again until after the virus has settled down. I will be sending out private messages as well shortly.

Re: Hello!

If we get to that point, I would hope insurance would pay for it. In the meantime, I'm a great believer in lifestyle interventions! Thanks for the detailed response NF52 - Like others have said, you are one of the gems on this site! I've been busy (or I would have provided links on my prior post......

Re: Hello!

NF52, I'm unclear what you are saying here: I found out that "loss of neurons" is not years after other biomarkers like amyloid-beta and tau tangles are seen on PET scans. There are studies that show loss of brain size in people likely to get AD later in life (either EOAD genes or ApoE4) w...

Re: Elderly phone issues (texts)

thanks for the reply. Redirection is a big focus and works really well in person, but sad to say...my mom is the culprit on creating the negative texts. She is "self triggered". She gets mad, writes something, then when reading her old texts gets mad all over again.... Can you get hold of...

Re: New & confused

I'm new and confused also...don't have my APOE status so I looked around on the Promethiase site and noticed this (Note that Promethease reports from Ancestry data will not return accurate ApoE status due to lack of relevant data.)...Is this common knowledge? In light of this statement, is the best...

Re: Double 4/4 Thread. Unique health pathways?

Do I assume that the only complex carbs he is recommending would be vegetables (and not grains, beans and oats)? Mel, you might get by with Yams. Try some and test your blood sugar before and then an hour and then two hours after. See what kind of spike you get, and how fast it comes down. I can't ...
