Re: Urea's role in dementia

I just found out I have extremely low uric acid (2.7 mg/dL).... Another thing to worry about (though I think I'll let this one slide).

Actually, I just looked at my pie chart, and it looks like yours! So maybe I'm over-reading the negative ones. But there are indeed some protective genes.

Re: **PROMETHEASE REPORTS FREE through December 31st.**

Thanks ZenGinner! (And it is indeed posted in the right place.)

I just generated a new report. Hadn't realized how much easier to use Promethease has become! (And how many more new, in my case bad, SNPs are part of the report.... :cry: )

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

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 [...].

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