Re: RAB10 - Gene Discovered to Protect Against Alzheimer's in High Risk Population

Yeah, V3 and V4 of 23andMe don't test for that SNP, I can report. But not sure about V5 (which is ery new).

Re: Herpes and other viruses the root cause?

Very interesting indeed! One of the theories of SEID/CFIDS/ME is that it is triggered, and then maintained, at least in part, via non-dormant/reactivated herpes infections (probably mostly EBV or HHV6, probably not HHV1 or the other herpes viruses). Stress makes SEID worse, and maybe that effect is ...

Re: NYTs: What if you knew Alzheimer's was coming for you?

An aspect of "coming out" that we don't talk a lot about is the multiple implications for one's family. First, they, like close friends, will be worried about you. But, in addition, if I come out as 4/4, then I'm simultaneously outing my parents and children as carriers. I'm also outing my...

Re: NYTs: What if you knew Alzheimer's was coming for you?

Great article! It even had a tone of advocacy, to some degree -- unusual for the NYT. Disappointed that the article did not mention Dr. Bredesen , his book [...]. Bredesen's work is amazing and the promise of his approach should be trumpeted as widely as possible. But I think there are advantages to...

Re: could we have a subforum devoted to our experiences with doctors?

This is something that could be tied in to our wiki page on APOE-aware healthcare practitioners:

https://www.apoe4.info/wiki/APOE-aware_ ... ctitioners

Maybe share experiences on the forum, and then put up contact info and a quick description of the practitioner in question at the wiki?

Re: Alternating polyphenol supplements rather than combining

I reached out to Bill from the Longevinex resveratrol product and asked about his opinion on combining Longevinex with curcumin or other polyphenol supplements in pursuit of additional anti-inflammatory / metabolic health benefits. He recommended keeping to a relatively tame 350mg total polyphenol ...

Re: Link to Wiki from Forum

Barry, thanks so much for your very helpful observations (and we welcome constructive criticism – so no worries there whatsoever!). The board, at first, didn't want to make the wiki more prominent until it was more developed. But, as I'm sure you're aware, making the wiki more developed and polished...
