Re: A bit of a belated introduction!

Welcome babl. Better late than never. I started lurking in late 2014 and still haven't introduced myself. Whenever I hear of a strong maternal history of Alzheimer's, I suspect a mitochondrial link. Mitochondrial DNA is inherited solely from the mother. That doesn't mean there is no vascular aspect,...

Re: New Wiki - Mitochondria

Any thoughts on attempting getting off the statins? I know we've discussed statins many times before. Maybe one of those discussions could help with suggestions. Here's a link to the search on the term "statins". https://www.apoe4.info/forums/search.php?keywords=statins&terms=all&...

Re: My aunt just died of Alzheimer’s

I'm so, so sorry about your aunt. I know what it's like to understand predispositions and strategies to prevent, well, anything, and not be listened to. It's tough. Wish I had better words to say, but they escape me, so just know I'm sending warm thoughts your way and giving you a virtual hug.

Re: What are the Top 10 Books on APOE E4 and Alzheimers

Not exactly an Alzheimer's book, but Dave Asprey wrote a book, "Head Strong" to share how he "hacked" his body to overcome the lack of focus, forgetfullness, and fogginess he was experiencing. It's a how-to for others with the same issues.

I remember that presentation, I watched it live in March 2016 on my computer, and yes, we did discuss it when it first came out. But it's a go...

Re: Gundry internet ads

If my Ferritin is great, why am I anemic? That's why she prescribed iron supplements 3-5x a week. Ferritin is different than iron. Ferritin is the protein that stores iron, it is not a good marker of iron because it’s also affected by just about anything that causes inflammation, which is why I was...

Re: Gundry internet ads

Barbara, I’m so sorry to hear of your frustrations, but let me start by reminding you I am not a medical professional, I have no formal background, I just read and research, and am fortunate to have a good doctor. Also remember when I talk about my markers, I’m just one datapoint, we’re all differen...
