This is really interesting, and a good pointer to always stay on the ball and watch what's necessary and what isn't! Thanks for sharing your experience!

Re: New Member from Hamburg, Germany

Oops, wrong chronological order. :) Hello Pinkgothic, Just read this thread and I want to welcome you. Thank you! I appreciate it! I am your mom's age and started having symptoms about 7 or 8 years ago that gradually got worse. Before the Bredesen book came out I was lucky enough to get a copy of hi...

Re: New Member from Hamburg, Germany

Hi, NF52! Although your B12 levels would now be considered within the "normal" range, I wanted to share my experience as a participant in a study of healthy people ages 60-75 who have one or two copies of ApoE 4 (I have two and am 67 years old.) My B-12 level on testing in March 2018 was 4...

Re: New Member from Hamburg, Germany

Just an update (not expecting comments on this, just felt appropriate to update): Got a lab test for vitamin B12 back today. I used the opportunity to start investigating how to get a cognoscopy (even if I'm "too young" for one), will know more next week, they're checking what they can che...

Re: New Member from Hamburg, Germany

May I ask what your lab result was for the B12 (and how measured ) and which form of B12 you're taking? I had something like 145 pg/ml on the blood test (don't have it at hand right now, but can check the exact value if you like and report back!). For reference, minimum on the lab report that I sho...

Re: New Member from Hamburg, Germany

Hi pinkgothic. I'm just an occasional contributor here but I wanted to say that I'm very glad that fixing the B12 deficiency seems to have helped so much. I'm sure those symptoms were scary! Did your doctors just see your levels were low and add the supplement, or did they figure out what might hav...

Hi, just wanted to check in here and thank you for existing. :) I'm currently 34 years old and recently (last two years especially) struggled badly with my cognition, deteriorating to the point where I was constantly depressed, where my light and sound sensitivity were dialled up to eleven, where my...
