H63d and Apoe4/4

I think I need to be done looking at my genes. It’s all bad, bad, bad. I have ALL the genes for hypercholesterolemia, am 4/4 and just found out that I am heterozygous for H63D. :o
If I donate blood 3 times yearly, will that lower Alzheimer’s risk?

Re: Overwhelmed!!

Thank you so much, Roxanne. I also have one copy of the gene for type 2 diabetes! My A1C is 5.0 and glucose is 105. I’m not Keto but I do eat low carb. My diet is rigid due to Sibo stuff but I eat 1 apple a day. Everything else is low carb. I don’t think I can go any lower. Keto was awful for my thy...

Overwhelmed!!

Hi everyone! I need some guidance with cholesterol levels. I ended up with an awful genetic jackpot. I’m Apoe 4/4, LDLR rs41291058 Hetero CT, ApoB rs6413458 Hetero AG, AND PCKS9 rs662799 Hetero AG. The last 3 are genes that code for familial hypercholesterolemia. I’d say it is extremely rare to have...

Re: Gut Bacteria

Hi Floramaria, 16 hours is quite a long fast for me. I can go no more than 15 since I’m a teacher and only have a few windows to eat while I am chasing around kids! If I wait, I’d be fasting 18 hours which is just not possible for me. I’ve been doing this fast for almost a year and my tests show I h...

Re: Gut Bacteria

I bought some insulin (with FOS) but have been hesitant to take because of Sibo. Last time I took a prebiotic, I was in a lot of pain. Apparently, it caused both types of bacteria to multiply...bad and good. I was also assuming the mention of the high fat diet meant bad fats as opposed to good. I wi...

The Brain,
I’m trying to drink Concord grape juice and taking cranberry extract daily but I’m not certain it will work. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6223323/

Re: Gut Bacteria

Hi Plumster,
I did find some Genova guides but absolutely nothing is listed on how to decrease these high levels. I found a lot on how to increase a level I’m deficient in (Akkermansia). My FP had no guidance , either. It’s frustrating to know this but have no guidance on how to remedy it.

Gut Bacteria

I did a stool test recently and I have high levels of 4 different types of Bacteroides phylum; B. Vulgates, Barnesiella spp, Odoribactor spp, and Prevotella spp. I also have Sibo. If I treat the Sibo, do you think these levels will drop? What else can I do to decrease them? I’ve searched high and lo...
