Re: ‘Amazing, Isn’t It?’ Long Sought Blood Test for Alzheimer’s in Reach

This appears to be a big breakthrough! Will be interesting to follow. Hopefully if it ultimately gets FDA approval it will funnel more people into clinical trials. Agree, Circ. I think this test also has implications for getting people to a targeted program to address specific drivers even earlier ...

Re: Chronically low oxygen saturation

Hi Josh! I wish I had better news for you. I suspect that this is another case where Dr. Bredesen is suggesting "optimal" levels vs. what mainstream medicine considers to be "acceptable". As you know, normal oxygen saturation is between 97-100%. Dr. Bredesen would like to see nig...

Re: High Homocysteine Possible Deficiencies

Hi slacker! <7 is the goal announced in the upcoming book. Congrats! Something else to keep in mind, Optimized omega-3 and choline (as co-factors) have emerged as other nutrients to consider when managing homocysteine. You likely have these covered with your seafood and egg intake.

Re: Plasma ApoE Levels and Risk of Dementia—You Are the Company You Keep

“The findings by Koch et al1 therefore raise the possibility that composition of the HDL-associated proteome may be a key determinant of apoE-associated risk of AD and all-cause dementia. Identifying HDL-associated protein cargo and apoE-interacting proteins in HDL fractions may hence provide furth...

Re: Tell my children or not?

So, those of us who are 4/4 and have not yet told our children who have not been tested, have yet another very important argument, for "telling", to consider. Agree, FC. From everything I've read, our genotype is at higher risk for COVID-19- especially when NOT controlling for risk factor...

Re: Reversing Alzheimer's Trial in Bay Area

Just musings, not a criticism of what Dr. Ornish is pursuing. It seems it should show some good results given the intimate dance between cardiovascular and brain health :D I appreciate your musings. :D FWIW, I suspect that Dr. Ornish has shown the success that he has in spite of the zero animal pro...

Re: Reversing Alzheimer's Trial in Bay Area

I admire the fact that Dr. Ornish has built enough evidence of the efficacy of his lifestyle approach for heart disease that it's covered by Medicare. That's exactly the direction we need to be moving with lifestyle protocols for cognitive decline. This needs to become reimbursable standard of care....

Re: Reversing Alzheimer's Trial in Bay Area

Really interesting, Plumster. Thank you for sharing. Dr. Ornish has trained under Dr. Bredesen. It looks like he’s generally using that same approach with a low fat, 100% plant based diet. This is one I’ll be watching!
