Re: New Member, been lurking for a while, waiting on my 23andme & ancestry results

It sounds like you are probably an ApoE 3/4, which is true for about 25% of the population of us descendants of Europeans and aliens and Neanderthals! ... Hugs to you and to all the women in your family (and your husband, who obviously appreciates the women in his life!) Thank you, NF52! I apprecia...

Re: New Member, been lurking for a while, waiting on my 23andme & ancestry results

Well, I received my 23andme and did the Promethease.

This is what it said on the first page:
gs141
2x risk of Alzheimer's disease You carry one APOE-ε3 allele and one APOE-ε4 allele. . This is based on
• rs429358(C;T)
• rs7412(C;C)

What about Dash Genomics? They advertise that their Alzheimer's assessment goes beyond others and at every age?

Thank you!

Re: New Member, been lurking for a while, waiting on my 23andme & ancestry results

Since then, I have read up on AD, been lurking a little on this website, skimmed the Primer, read Dr. Bredesen's book, and been quite over whelmed with all the medical stuff and just how detailed it can get. Given what you wrote, I would recommend Found My Fitness (Dr. Rhonda Patrick) and/or Strate...

Re: New Member, been lurking for a while, waiting on my 23andme & ancestry results

We love "lurkers" who join; I should know; I'm one of them! It shows that you have a curious, yet cautious nature and want to get information from lots of sources. That sounds like "cognitive reserve and flexibility"--two traits associated on population studies with both long li...

Re: New member with Vascular Dementia

My father has "walking companions" a few times a week, who report that he has been shuffling now and then, not picking up his feet properly. That resulted in a minor fall and his health insurance is now paying for PT once a week. I put him through in-bed exercises in the mornings. I know ...

Hi, :D Just in case you don't want to read through my lengthy intro, here is my first question: What is your favorite genetic tool for taking the data from 23andme and ancestry and analyzing it further? In 2016 I took over care for my Mom, who has been diagnosed with AD and is living close to me in ...
