Re: Ideal diet for my Mom APoE 3/4 to gain some weight back

Gaining weight might be a part of controlling the migraines. I have a family member who gets migraines. Skipping meals and stress are 2 big triggers. Given your mom is still losing weight, she is in a calorie deficit, likely experiencing effects of starvation at her weight, so her body is definitel...

Re: Ideal diet for my Mom APoE 3/4 to gain some weight back

I suspect she's about 50lbs at this point. At this low weight I personally would not worry about following the Bredesen recommendations. She needs calories! She might be having trouble digesting fats, and may need more protein and carbs. If you choose high fiber options, like sweet potatoes or squa...

Re: New member with some questions...

I downloaded my information from Prometheus, Genetic Genie and Nutrahacker. I’m COMT G/G rs6269 & rs165722 and MTRR G/G & MTR G/G (which I think is not good based on my research, am I correct?). It’s extra confusing because many recommendations on these reports contradict each other (Take m...

Re: Between a kidney stone and a hard place

I have always imagined there was an unhealthy user bias going on among breakfast skippers and their poorer metabolic outcomes. So I will read deeper and adjust accordingly. As an aside, I am stunned by how much extra sodium I have been consuming despite an almost exclusively whole food diet. Mustar...

Re: Between a kidney stone and a hard place

Lastly, if you have an opinion, or would hazard one, do you think continuing a ketogenic diet at 2000 mg of sodium is unwise? I can’t imagine going back to being pre-diabetic, but I can’t imagine being a stone former either. A conundrum. It is a conundrum. I'm still sorting out the keto thing, whic...

Re: Between a kidney stone and a hard place

What type of urine analysis have you had done? Do you know if you have hypercalciuria or hypocitraturia? How is your oxalic acid output now? Sodium seems to be very important to reduce, and especially if you have hypercalciuria. AUA recommends no more than 2300 mg/day so you're well over their recom...

Re: Celebration Thread! Biogen is going to the FDA with Aducan.

Perhaps this will be more how people understand research in the future, especially if it turns out that every type of AD is its own snowflake. I think you probably are closer than anyone here, at least in terms of the genetics, in understanding how each of us is unique enough to require different a...

Re: Microbleed and white matter

Two years ago a MRI of my brain was made and they found white matter lesions and one microbleed. Hi caat, and welcome to the group. One tip is to do a search (that magnifying glass icon at the top right) and see what others might have posted (if you haven't already). I see that there have already b...

Re: New Chinese study on protein intake and cognition

When they say "...and daily fish intake...", do they mean that the Apo E4's in the study that ate only fish every day, had a slower cognitive decline, or does it mean that those people ate more fish in general, wrt the others in the study? I can't get to the full article to answer your qu...

Re: Opinion on ApoE4 plus MTHFR heterozygous

Also, I already feel my memory is a dulled and retrieval is hard work, has anyone ever found this to improve not he B12/folate etc supplements? If you haven't already, you might want to check out Dr. Bredesen's Recode Protocol , which shows there are many possible underlying problems for cognitive ...
