Re: Does having APOE4 protect you from getting the Coronavirus? .... Maybe

https://tbsnews.net/international/coronavirus-chronicle/100-year-old-man-recovered-coronavirus-53548?amp For as lousy as this gene is in some ways, it definitely gives us a leg up in apocalyptic-type situations. I guess the apoe4 figures it has to pop its head up and prove why it's still around eve...

Re: Just discovered I'm 4/4, rocked.

Ding! I forgot to look at my raw data. Was using Promethease. Rats, I'm A,A. That sucks but there are other genes that help offset the risk. Did you check these out: Picalm rs3851179 and Cd33 rs3865444? I don't have the alleles written down but SNPedia will have them. I was also reading that one of...

Re: Just discovered I'm 4/4, rocked.

There is one gene CETP rs5882 (g/g allele is best) that is able to modify the risk of apoe4 anotherdreamer, do you know which if any direct-to-consumer genetic tests (including the version #) includes this if you run it through Promethease or look at raw data? I have a 'superfile' at Promethease an...

Re: Alcohol and APOE

I recently listened to a podcast with Peter Attia saying how even small amounts of alcohol disrupts the sleep cycle. Considering how important sleeping is to clean out the brain, I'd be nervous.

Re: New here. ApoE e2/e4

I'm envious of your apoe 2! That's the rockstar of the apoes. I'm early on in my research but from what I'd heard, apoe2 modifies the heart risk issues of having an apoe4. There's a youtube interview with Rhonda Patrick and Peter Attia where it is mentioned. As far as modifying AD, I can't say. I wo...

Re: apoe4 children have lower IQ`s ?

I'm not so sure about that. I feel like I'm going brain dead lately, but when I was in school I typically tested in the upper 95th percentile in most subjects.

Re: Greetings from 4/4 in Snowy Colorado

I think that’s HUGE. Take what I say with a few grains of salt. I’m new to the research and I’m still a bit of an idiot. The way it seems to me is apoe4 screws up your cholesterol handling. They’re the slacker gene. If you do everything right, it’s like letting them kind of coast a bit. They don’t h...

Re: Greetings from 4/4 in Snowy Colorado

I'm sorry! That's a lot to have to handle in a very short time. Your obvious strength through it all is utterly amazing. From reading your post, you definitely know more than I do. I feel inadequate giving you any advice at all seeing how well you're already managing. I might have an answer to one o...

Re: Just discovered I'm 4/4, rocked.

I'm new to this site as well and also pretty green to the research, but there are some things I've learned that I'm hoping might help you. You said your father's side hasn't show any signs of AD. It is possible that his side has some protective genes. There is one gene CETP rs5882 (g/g allele is bes...
