Re: Apolipoprotein E Genotype, Meat, Fish, and Egg Intake in Relation to Mortality Among Older Adults: A Longitudinal An

As I posted on the Facebook page, here's something in the results section that was easy to skip over LOL, and as I said on the Facebook page — wonder what mechanism is at play re. the differences between the genders? FWIW, whenever I see epidemiological studies like this, I look for signals vs. str...

Re: Uric Acid concerns

If anyone has any thoughts on this I'd be really interested. Hi GemmaJ! In fell disclosure, I haven't seen the interview that you linked but previous research (linked below) has indicated that high levels of UA may actually be neuroprotective. Has Dr. Perlmutter concluded differently? FWIW, a keton...

Re: Apolipoprotein E Genotype, Meat, Fish, and Egg Intake in Relation to Mortality Among Older Adults: A Longitudinal An

Fascinating paper. I just took a quick look but from what I could tell ApoE4 carriers had better outcomes, in terms of all-cause mortality, with higher amounts of meat, fish, and eggs. It's worth noting that those in the study are metabolically healthier than Americans and "higher amounts"...

Re: Need more WEIGHT :)

Based on that study, I suggest we all give up and eat bon bons on the sofa and work towards extreme obesity for brain health. It's certainly a head scratcher. A quick perusal showed that the median age was 55 years old with 9 years of follow-up; perhaps too early for dementia to be seen? Another con...

Re: Delirium

Oh dear, one step forward, two steps back. I'm so sorry, Phil. The good news is that you've identified one of the causes of the delirium and she's being treated but as you've noted, without proper hygiene, the issue is likely to continue to reoccur. To the best of your ability, you may want to try t...

Re: COVID fog/BPH/Drug alternatives?

I am new to the forum and was recently tested and am APOE4/4. Not the best news to receive. My father and grandmother both had Alzheimer's. I have had Covid fog since April which is what led me to get tested as I feared it was Alzheimer's. I saw a functional medicine doctor and started on the new l...

Re: Need more WEIGHT :)

I’m wondering whether there’s consensus about a safe BMI range for cognition that’s based on good evidence. Or, is there better evidence for using a body fat percentage range or some other data point? Such a great question. As you know, those who are underweight are at higher risk as are those that...

Re: Need more WEIGHT :)

Well made the transition to OMAD (Thx to MAC)......now having a hard time getting my weight back. Was down to a low of 120's from 160 lbs. Eating a HUGE meal every day. LOTS of healthy fats but no luck in really getting the weight up. Now around 134-138 (BMI-19) 6 ft. Doing weights more often a lit...

Re: Fasting Issues

BTW, it never occurred to me that I could gradually increase my fasting time by 5 minutes. Definitely doable! I agree, extending almost anything —except holding a plank position :D — for 5 minutes does feel pretty doable. Your glycemic numbers aren't too bad, my friend, but there's a little room fo...

Re: Delirium

So sorry, PhilD. That must be equally frustrating and heartbreaking for you. Both the anesthesia from the surgery, any overnight stay at the hospital, the trauma from the surgery itself, and even a bladder infection can contribute to the delirium your wife has experienced. Have you had her urine ret...
