Re: How do you put on weight?

If you're strictly following Bredesen and want to gain weight, the only options are to eat more nuts, avocados, olives, etc. Whole foods plant based fats. Healthy fats are a good starting place. Dr. Bredesen also recommends resistant starches (like legumes, tubers, and more) for those who are insul...

Re: Carbohydrates and Longevity

It's a similar conclusion to the 2002 study, we've known different APOE genotypes metabolize glucose differently, but there are no conclusions stating that glucose is bad for APOE4. In fact, low GI carbs seem to be beneficial, at least compared to SFA (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30336580)....

Re: Carbohydrates and Longevity

Note the statement on consuming large amounts of whole grain carbohydrates. This seems to go against the current trend of limiting carbs of all types. It wouldn't be the first time the "general consensus" was wrong. There are currently large-scale clinical studies of the Mediterranean die...

Re: "Laird Superfood" ?

I’ve never heard of this product but would advise against it. Coconut sugar will break your fast, impede autophagy, and interfere with your ability to create ketones. MCT alone can be transiently helpful when working to extend your fast but you seem to be doing well without it, having worked up to a...

Re: What is considered atrophy in a brain structure per MRI volumetrics (NeuroQuant and Neuroreader)?

Hmmm, assuming no histamine after allergen exposure, or even no reaction to histamine itself (?) No response to histamine itself... not sure what that means and why I get relief from zyrtec, an antihistamine. Julie, I have MCAS too and not Ige tested response. If you read the book it will answer a ...

Re: Polygenic info used to identify risk of AD

So just looking at the pattern, if you are 4/4, your Hazard score goes to 99-100% with a 50% chance of having AD by 80 years old, where as 3/4's Hazard scores vary between 81 and 93 with 50% not until 86 years old. As a 4/4, it seems as though the test would be a waste of money. Does that mean that...

Re: Sites and links used for Facebook articles

Interesting footnote: I just looked at the site that lead to Kathleen's rant on a PC. It looks very different than my previous smart phone view. :? Yikes! Point well taken.

Re: Sites and links used for Facebook articles

To bring others up to speed, Kathleen is specifically talking about this article posted by one of our Facebook editors. While a keto diet is certainly debatable for E4 carriers, it's been shown to help offset our reduction in cerebral glucose utilization and hence a topic worthy of posting about. Th...

Re: What is considered atrophy in a brain structure per MRI volumetrics (NeuroQuant and Neuroreader)?

What are your continuing MCAS symptoms if you don't take the antihistamines? Hi Circ! No, I've never tried mast cell stabilizers and probably should. As you might recall, Rudy Tanzi found that another mast cell stabilzer, sodium cromolyn stabilized abeta "in a dish" and prevented tau tang...
