Re: Best diet for women 4/4’s?

Right now I’m pretty much surviving on salad, eggs, nuts, salmon, and organic blueberries because these are the only foods that I haven’t read something negative about for female 4/4’s. I’m eating about 800 calories a day when I used to eat twice as many. I work out hard each day. I’m 41. I’m miser...

Re: So glad to be here!

A month ago, I downloaded my data onto Strategene to give to a health practitioner and found that I do have 2 copies of the ApoE4 gene... and perhaps also one ApoE3 gene variant -- all of which dramatically raises my chances of getting Alzheimer's. Barbara, every one has 2 (and only 2) copies of AP...

Re: WSJ Article featuring ApoE4.Info

Nice article, but ugh!

A spokesman for the Alzheimer’s Association said such tests have little value because they provide only general information about risk—and because there is no effective treatment for the disease.

Re: Any NORCAL folks interested in a get together?

Hi Mike, I just joined this site today and also live in Sonoma County (Santa Rosa) and would be interested in a get together. (I am a 4/4.) Oh, darn, I see that the get together happened over the past weekend in Mill Valley (where I used to live). Are you still planning to have another get together...

Mental stimulation in older folks lowers MCI

Here is an interesting study, that should lead to more research... https://www.medpagetoday.org/neurology/dementia/81008?xid=nl_mpt_DHE_2019-07-16&eun=g1288999d0r&utm_term=NL_Daily_DHE_Active&vpass=1 Notably, the number of mentally stimulating activities participants engaged in at midlif...

Re: animal protein

Fat is not the cause of Insulin Resistance, sugar is. Too much glucose and especially fructose. Fructose can't be used by the body and must be converted by the liver. It then often gets stored as organ fat. Liver gets fat, then pancreas. Listen to Peter Attia's recent podcast with Dr Jason Fung: htt...

Re: Sleep

I started out by marking everything as read. I then go in periodically to the forums to see what is new, and read the ones that look interesting. I then again mark everything as read in that forum to remove the ones that did not interest me. This way I get to see any new ones each time I go in.

Re: Glucose and insulin levels

Hi; Had a dr appt a couple weeks ago. My Fasting Glucose was 97mg/dl. It's been in the mid to upper 90's for several years now (I'm 67). My Insulin was 3.51 ulU/mL (normal listed as 1.90-23.00). Should I be concerned about that glucose level? It used to be mid to low 80's when I was younger. I gene...

Re: Association of Lifestyle and Genetic Risk With Incidence of Dementia

If E4s are more likely to be affected by life-style risks, then you would think that E4's might be able to counter more of the risk - it would be nice if they could isolate their data by APOE, instead of just mentioning that "other studies" showed a difference...
