The problem I'm having is that I don't see that SNP in my raw data from 23andme.

Re: 4/4 female mid40s

That sounds terrible! It sounds like you have to heal the relationship with your father to be able to spend time with your mother, and given what you said already, that will probably be tough. Are there any things that your dad responds positively to? I wonder if he has signs of dementia himself, an...

Re: Lab testing: prioritization, costs

I did all those blood tests and received my results, but no bill; so far, so good! I'm still working on getting a referral for a neurologist, so I can get a brain MRI, as I want to follow up on the small FLAIR hyperintensities I had years ago. I was told by insurance that I have to wait until March,...

Re: Elevated Vitamin B6

Thanks, Slacker. I read the methylation wiki backward and forwards, and I think I will follow the recommendations to start with B12 and methlyfolate, then add 20mg pyridoxal-5-phosphate aka P5P. I don't know if pyridoxal-5-phosphate is necessary instead of pyridoxine, as I don't think MTHFR is invol...

Elevated Vitamin B6

I have high homocysteine (11.2), low-normal B12, normal serum folate (didn't check RBC folate), high RBC MCH, and a high serum vitamin B6 level (24.5, above the normal range of 2-21). I know the B6 test can be affected by vitamin consumption, but I don't think I took vitamins the day before, and I w...

Re: Breakfast Suggestions

Here are some ideas: Sweet potato hash browns sautéed with onions and peppers, topped with avocado. I imagine other resistant starches (e.g., parsnips?) would be good prepared this way. I've used large cooked sweet potato slices as the "toast" for my avocado toast - this is SO GOOD. You sa...

Re: Non-stick pans

Any thoughts on those ceramic-coated pans? Or enamel-coated cast iron?

I don't understand that either!
Thanks for sharing your experience, Mark, and best of luck to you and your wife :)

Re: Worsened Lipids from Adding Eggs?

A lot of this could depend on genetic context as well as on how the lectin containing foods are traditionally prepared. Many of the traditional food preparation techniques, such as fermentation and soaking, lesson or deactivate the lectins. I think you're right; I bet Dr. Gundry's new book will add...

Re: IVF and testing embryos for APOE4 allele.

Very interesting question! I think living in the U.S., with less of a parasite problem than many other places in the world, Apo3/3 is more advantageous, but as others have said, being 3/4 isn't the end of the world (incidentally, I am 3/3 and my fiancé is 4/4, so we know ALL our children will be 3/4...
