Re: Low fasting insulin and high HS-CRP

myboyluvsdinos, A person can be too low in insulin, it’s not a good thing. The question is what is too low and under what context? That’s not easy to answer. First, I would not consider a fasting insulin level of 1.6 too low, especially if you happen to be insulin sensitive. Remember, reference rang...

Re: Housework could keep brain young, research suggests

Well thank goodness brain health is dependent on multiple factors, if it relied solely on housework, I'd be in a world of hurt. :D :D

Re: Blood sugar

I am confused at how my insulin can be lower than my a1C Because you're measuring two different things, like an apple and an orange - HbA1c is the average level of blood sugar (glucose) over the past 2 to 3 months. Insulin (I'm assuming fasting insulin) measures, well, insulin. Unlike glucose, as M...

Re: Blood sugar

:!: My aiC is also a 5 and I am also a 4/4 I eat very healtthy and am fit, but I can't seem to get my Aic lower Is a 5 okay for a 4/4 ?

Re: New and confused

I've had two CACs - Coronary Artery Calcium scans, I had a little calcification, but the growth between the two scans (three year interval) after following a better, ApoE4 friendly diet, indicates low risk. If interested in more information on the scan, Ivor Cummins ( The Fat Emperor ) is a big advo...

Re: Blood sugar

(I am not familiar with wiki-editing, and I don't know what protocol apoe4 chooses to follow when adding information to keep the information of high quality.) Our current policy is that the first edit is moderated, understandable since we've had some people register and try to write in our wiki abo...

Re: Intermittent Fasting

Hmmm....I vaguely remember Rhonda Patrick saying recently that anything other than water wakes the pancreas and stops IF.... But it stops it from doing what? I've also listened to the interviews Dr Rhonda Patrick conducted with circadian rhythm expert Dr Satchin Panda, and yes, from a circadian rhy...

Re: cognitive disconnect - do you "feel" you are reducing risk?

I've come to a strange place where I am convinced by what seems to be good data that there are modifiable risk factors, e.g. lifestyle interventions that help to delay or prevent AD to some degree. So I've adopted many of the lifestyle changes, especially those that are bound to improve my overall ...
