Re: The 'selfish brain' is regulated by aquaporins and autophagy under nutrient deprivation

Interesting, because during Ramadan, people break their fasting after sundown, whereas some other recent studies showed that eating earlier in the day might be better for intermittent fasting. And Bredesen recommends stopping eating 3 hours before bedtime. Thanks for sharing!

The interpreting doctor did a short overview (maybe a paragraph) of the brain, vessels, sinuses, etc. And included the Neuroquant report.

Re: did anyone do neuroquant at smartchoice mri?

The doctor wants it done at the hospital so he can have the images, I don't know if that will be a problem if I do it elsewhere. I had mine done Diagnostic Centers of America. They sent the results via email to my doctor, and also provided me a CD with the full imagery to give to him. Maybe just ca...

Re: New! 37F apoe3/4 in NYC, Mom (71, apoe3/4) is Pending Alzheimer's Dx

Most of us here have faced helping a loved one battling dementia. It's a tough and exhausting place to be. Remember that you are doing your best to support your mom, and all caregivers out there will admit to having bad days and imperfect solutions. My mom, for all her flaws, is a wonderful human be...

Re: Rough dsy, just got test results I have 1 copy

I just listened to a voice mail from my doctor's office. I have 1 copy of the APOE4. Do I tell my siblings to get tested? I am not totally surprised since my mother had Alzheimer's. But I am shocked and very, very sad to hear this. Welcome, and we're glad you found your way to our site. It is shock...

Re: Wrestling with all the food recommendations

One thing I like about the new Bredesen book is it devotes adequate attention to people who don't want to lose weight. That possibility seems not to occur to the authors of the Elimination book... Given the rate of obesity in this country, I'd say they might not have considered it. I agree with flo...

Re: Wrestling with all the food recommendations

In the new Bredesen book there is a lot about what to eat and how food affects us. The elimination diet is just one part of it. Figuring out the diet is hard for many of us. I can speak from experience that an elimination diet, done right, will highlight problematic foods to cut out of your diet. I...

Re: Wild Planet Sardines are High in Arsenic (and other omega 3 ponderings)

Here are some references. Now, the second one points out that there just hasn't been enough research on arsenobetaine, the main organoarsenical in seafood to know if it's toxic. And it's hard to tease out what is from inorganic arsenic from organic in one of the main metabolites. Seems to be an area...

Re: Wild Planet Sardines are High in Arsenic (and other omega 3 ponderings)

Doesn't it take a while for whole blood stores of a nutrient or toxin to build up, such that recent fish consumption might not add much aresenic to those stores? LabCorp says, "Blood levels of arsenic have a short half-life and are useful only for monitoring recent or acute exposure. Urine ars...
