Re: Worst Labs Ever

I'm trying to learn here but what is "good" about those labs? Let’s start with Total Cholesterol (TC) – 371. I’m not going to say that’s good, it does seem to be high, but it’s also not telling us anything. Is it high because of inflammation? Is it high because she’s a hyper-responder, wh...

Re: Worst Labs Ever

I think your fasting glucose is excellent, remember Dr Bredesen's range for ideal HbA1c is 4.0 - 5.3. I also think all the other things you're thinking are right on point.

Re: Worst Labs Ever

One more thing, I'm not saying you need to get every single test listed, but there's a list of tests Dr Bredesen recommends along with target values in our wiki. The table of tests and values was taken from his second book, "The End of Alzheimer's Program" which did update tests and values...

Re: Worst Labs Ever

I think those are horrible lab TESTS, not necessarily horrible lab results. A positive test result I see is your HDL to Triglyceride ratio, which is wonderful! Did she not see/mention that? But where’s fasting glucose, insulin, HbA1c? Where are inflammation markers? You’re a 3/4 for goodness sake! W...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

Great thanks for getting back to me so soon. So we are talking niacinamide not niacin. Just checking. I used to take niacin with heavy flush as the non flush didn’t seem to work. Then I stopped altogether. So just making sure I don’t get the wrong one. Does niacinamide flush. Thanks again Niacinami...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

One question could you please tell me what type of niacinamide you prefer [emoji3577]thx I haven't been picky about my Niacinamide, basically I just grab what is on the shelf at the store. But the Now brand is (or at one time ...

Interesting....apoe2/4 had outcomes similar to apoe4/4, i.e. the 2, while protective on its own, can't cancel out the 4.


Thank you for sharing. I'm so glad someone finally did some research on this.

Re: Is apoe4 an evolutionary mistake?

On the contrary. For 96% of human history, we were all ApoEε4 homozygotes (ε4/4s). The other alleles showed up “recently” in evolutionary terms. ApoEε3 appeared 220,000 years ago, and only 80,000 years ago ApoEε2 appeared. The ApoE ε4 allele is the oldest of the ApoE variants, having existed literal...
