Re: RAB10 - Gene Discovered to Protect Against Alzheimer's in High Risk Population

Hello, I do have the Rs142787485 but the A:A variant which seems to have low impact. Hi happy50-- it's your first post! Thanks for participating in the conversation. I also looked up the A/A gene variant and I found only what you suggested: it appears that only G/G or A/G alone offer some protectiv...

Re: Bredesen Protocol in Switzerland/Germany

Regarding remote access to Bredesen support, we (in Melbourne) can interface with our Bredesen-trained naturopath (in Adelaide 750 km away) via a Trello Board link and a video conference call as necessary. All correspondence, suggested readings, test results etc. are stored under subject categories...

Re: Establishing a baseline

Hello, I’ve been doing a ton of reading but don’t seem to be able to find out a few things. I am 40, and 3/4. I was once an auto mechanic (about 10-15 yrs) and was exposed to a lot of toxins. I am now a teacher, and really starting to dial in my health. My first question comes from wanting to estab...

Re: Newly discovered APOE 3/4 and trying to make sense of some things.

Hey! Sad to find out I have one of the alleles but very happy and grateful to for this group. Found out about my unfortunate allele last week and have been down the rabbit hole ever since. I did discover that I have some protective genes on my side. I've got FOXO3 rs2802292 g/g, rs1935949 t/t and C...

Re: Bredesen practitioner - Minneapolis MN area??

To find Bredesen trained doctors, go to ifm.org to get a list of doctors trained in functional medicine, then start calling those doctors and ask if they are trained in the Bredesen protocol and if they are not, do they know of any doctor who is, I found some in Missouri this way. Doctors trained i...

Re: Glucose metabolism in Alzheimer disease.

"Areas or patterns of reduced glucose metabolism are often seen in brain scans of patients with Alzheimer disease and other dementias. Now, a growing body of evidence suggests that glucose hypometabolism may be more than just a biomarker on brain scans: it may be a key player in dementia patho...

Re: Bad experience with propofol

I've really been enjoying this site recently and figured this might be my one opportunity to contribute something here, as I'm an anesthesiologist. Propofol is probably the most commonly used drug in all of anesthesia. It is quite versatile and can be used for anything from light "conscious se...

Re: Unfortunate side effect from melatonin.

Thank you very much for this forum. I was having such severe bouts of diarrhea that I was scared to go to work. After reading a post on this forum, I checked the ingredients of my melatonin tablets and found magnesium stearate, something which caused me diarrhea before. I stopped taking the pills a...

Re: Intermittent Fasting

Hello all, new to the site 4/4 here. I have oddly enough been keto for long periods of time in combo with IF and longer fasts as well prior to learning about my AD risk level. Just to touch back on a few questions earlier in the thread around what we are looking for in IF with times that may be too...
