Chris Yes, it was nice to see folks again, and catch up on what each is doing. How does Sunday, October 13, 2019 at 10 am sound for the next one? I'm thinking that San...

Re: Great new podcast - Peter Attia and Jason Fung

I found the first hour rather repetitive and I thought Peter Attia didn't challenge Dr. Fung very much since his work was based on clinical results. What I did like was that Dr. Fung said that his observations were limited to those very sick and said that fasting is low risk with potential high gain...

Re: Sleep

So is there any way, I wonder, that I can intervene to increase the likelihood of lots of deep sleep? I'd love to hear from any of you who have thought about sleep in relation to APOe4 and have any thoughts on the matter. Hi Johnseed, I use a fitbit (tracks total sleep, awake time, REM, light sleep...

ATN Biomarkers Have Prognostic Value in Alzheimer's

-Amyloid, tau, and neurodegeneration biomarkers tied to improved prediction of memory decline “Age (P < 0.001) and APOE ε4 status (P = 0.006) were significantly associated with faster rates of memory decline, while sex, education, and composite cardiovascular and metabolic condition score were not l...

“Blood-based β-amyloid 42 and β-amyloid 40 ratio, together with APOE genotype, may be used as prescreening tests in primary care and in clinical Alzheimer disease trials to lower the costs and number of positron emission tomography scans and lumbar punctures," they wrote in JAMA Neurology. http...

Re: Latest NMR Results

My BMI is good, i'm 6'1 and 165lbs. I try to fast about 14-16 hours a day. I walk 5 miles+ a day and play soccer on the weekends (try to not use my head). My A1C at last check was 4.9. Also I should mention that I had been drinking a glass or 2 of red wine on the weekend nights but I think I will g...
