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

I didn't know if I should create a separate thread for this or not but I decided it would be fitting here. I want to thank you all again for your kind words and suggestions. I copied down Stavia's lab suggestions from the primer you helpfully linked to and took them to my doctor. He dismissively sai...

Re: URGENT: Biomarker Study Opportunity for ApoE4.Info Members

I'm a 4/4 that'd be interested in participating if I'm not too young (35) or Canadian.

Re: apoe4 children have lower IQ`s ?

To add in, I'm 35 and a 4/4 and was always at or near the top of my class, put in the gifted programs, trivia wiz, all of that. I took an IQ test around a decade ago and I think it was right around 130 (I'm scared to take another now). And reading everyone here, it seems like I'm pretty far on the d...

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

floramaria: Thanks for helping me to check one off my list! I don't think I have early-onset Alzheimer's on my Mom's side of the family and I don't think I have much or any Alzheimer's on my Dad's side (Which makes me 4/4 way more shocking), so hopefully I'm good there. It's weird though because I s...

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

Slacker: Thanks so much for spending the time to make such a detailed reply, almost makes me feel guilty! I won't know until I see the doctor but I suspect you're right about the problems I'll have getting tests ordered in Canada versus the US. I have a fear/feeling that doctors will just say "...

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

I’m just like you in that I’m a 37 year old man, 4/4, great grandmother died of Alzheimers at 84, and grandmother getting it now at age 80. I was crushed mentally when I found out and was depressed for a couple of months. It does get way better after the initial grieving stage. I promise. What fixe...

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

Hi, thanks so much for your responses. At the bottom I have some questions for anyone reading this, but up top I've got replies for each of you so I don't make three posts. mountaineermd: Thanks for the extra book recommendations. I'll also definitely have to try to get to the Youtube videos. I used...

Just discovered I'm 4/4, rocked.

Hi, I'm a 35 year old male from Canada. I'll try to share what's brought me here. A few months ago my Grandmother passed away from Alzheimer's. Her Mother, my Great Grandmother, had suffered from it before her. My Mom just turned 64 and was a little anxious, knowing it had come for her Mom and Grand...
