Re: Anyone lowered LDL drastically WITHOUT statins ?

Did anybody have success with lowering LDL (drastically) with other means or supplements? I'm a work in progress, but the doctor I'm currently working with says he sees LDL numbers drop once you fix underlying inflammation (usually infections like virus, Lyme, gut dysbiosis). He runs a practice tha...

Re: MTHFR C677T and E4/E4

I'm hoping maybe someone here can shed some light on what they've experienced with having the MTHFR mutation and the 4/4. I know we are all genetically different beyond those two genetic issues, but, I'm looking for some other ideas as to what may or may have not worked for others. Welcome, and alt...

Re: Using RAPA for AD prevention

In mouse models, they find that ε3s get few if any of the benefits of rapa that ε4/ε4s do, and actually impairs their brain glucose metabolism, though they did get some cognitive benefit and lower anxiety Thanks for this. Definitely something to watch. As a 3/4 I do see some things that help 4/4s t...

Re: High Homocysteine Possible Deficiencies

I'm ready to just go without supplements , but I did before I switched to a ketoflex and it jumped to 12.1 At your original reading of 7, were you taking the niacin? Because your homocysteine rise is likely related to the niacin. Your body gets rid of excess niacin by using up methyl groups. So tho...

Re: APOE 4/4 Specific diet - Dr. Gundry or not?

Still can't find, and maybe there isn't best bioavailable supplements to help all over as well as brain and crossing blood-brain barrier. Not exactly sure if this is the answer for you, but I take Theracumin for brain health and overall inflammation reduction, along with fish oil. As far as heavy m...

Re: Tell my children or not?

While I wouldn't recommend the bariatric surgery option, this one shows Type 2 Diabetes can be reversed in a week on a hypo caloric diet. To test this hypothesis, a group of people with type 2 diabetes were studied before and during a 600 kcal/day diet (21). Within 7 days, liver fat decreased by 30%...

Re: Plasma ApoE Levels and Risk of Dementia—You Are the Company You Keep

I'm sure you already know about the Krauss paper (Faghihina, Krauss 2012) indicating a high SFA diet leads to higher ApoC3 content in LDL particles vs. a lower SFA diet. Missed that one. Thanks for the reference. Saturated fat does bad things to my lipids, so I'm definitely interested in reading th...

Re: Plasma ApoE Levels and Risk of Dementia—You Are the Company You Keep

I read about this yesterday and found the HDL and apoC3 level connection interesting.
