High red counts and APOE4

Interesting... husband says I don’t snore but perhaps I should get tested, however my epo hormone isn’t elevated which it would be with sleep apnea I think.

Re: High red counts and APOE4

Was being checked for Polycythemia Vera but no conclusive results. Mayo ran the most common genetic mutations tests but not all of them. At this point just ongoing blood checks to see if I get sicker. :/ Then perhaps more testing. Not sure at this point. Just knowing that apoe4 has cardiac risks it ...

Re: High red counts and APOE4

Nope. You are suggesting secondary polycythemia due to low oxygens - smoking, sleep apnea or tobacco use. If I had that my EPO hormone would be high I think... like 20. Mine is under 4. From the number of views and lack of comments I’m thinking it might be unrelated to apoe status. Hmmm Sent from my...

High red counts and APOE4

Just curious if others have seen this in their labs... my bloodwork over the past few years has shown high and increasing levels of red blood cells. Everything else is normal. Any relation to APOE3/4 status? I’m a 47 y/o female Hematocrit 49.6 Hemoglobin 16.1 Rbc 5.38 Sent from my iPhone using Tapat...

Thanks for this info! I was 411. Going to call my cornea specialist today.

Re: Has anyone done the one time RECODE report simple for prevention?

I just did my recode report too. Same info provided as Alison listed above. I found a spreadsheet in the apoe4 wiki that allows you to track. I'm curious though about the MMP9. Not seeing that in the spreadsheet and don't know what the appropriate reference range is. Along with being APOE3/4 I'm hav...

Re: Brother and sister neg for apoe4 - feeling oddly alone now...

Thanks for all your responses. I totally feel the love and support. I also loved slacker's comment about having a new family here. :) So many emotions around Alzheimer's. My mom continues to decline too, Torimintz. She was asking yesterday to go stay with her grandparents for a few days. :(

Brother and sister neg for apoe4 - feeling oddly alone now...

I don’t want them to be positive... truly I don’t. My gut is pathetically wondering why I swam in the shallow end of the gene pool. I’m hopeful you all can understand my strange mixed emotions right now.

Re: How long after eating before authophagy starts?

So autography is when ratios are below 1:1? I can do that in about 20 hours of fasting. Yesterday I did a 24 hour fast and at the end I had glucose of 65 and ketones of 5.4 with a ratio of 0.7. Only once over the past month were my ketones below 3.0 with an average ratio of about 1.3. Should I be gr...

Re: Lab testing: prioritization, costs

I'm curious on this too. What lab tests did you decide are required and which optional? I listened to the End of Alzheimer's book on audible so I don't have ready access to the lists. Downside of listening I guess...
