Re: 23 & me test - still worth it?

Hi J.J., Thank you for sharing your results. I too am looking for magnitude of BAD and GOOD to others in our group. To your concerns, our results are not impossible! We just need to be mindful of the other part of the equation - the environment we provide for our genes. As mentioned in another strin...

Re: A Close Call

Silver - I'm so glad your husband's health care providers decided to be conservative and follow through. Conventional medicine has a place, and this was one of them. I don't have any medical advice, but your attention and his willingness to adjust seem like a great combination. I also just wanted to...

Re: 23 & me test - still worth it?

I just got notice that my 23&me report is in. I'm at work so haven't uploaded my data anywhere yet. I checked out the promethease website. I see that they accept ancestry.com and familytreedna.com raw data too. Has anyone compared the results of all three companies for differences or advantages?...

Re: NY Times article on AD progression

Fortunately there was a good letter to the editor in reply to the column that included a mention of Dr. Bredesen: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/04/opinion/geri-taylors-journey-with-alzheimers.html?_r=0 To the Editor: Though Geri Taylor’s positive attitude is admirable, her situation is presented as...

Re: I've had a reversal of cognitive decline...and want to share what I've learned...

Thank you so much for sharing your personal story! It is truly inspiring.

Can you share some of the details of Dr. Bredesen's protocol for your case? I think we have the outlines based on his paper but any particular details would be appreciated.

Is it the Lipids effect or the APOE4 effect on Heart Disease

I found this paper from 2009 in JAMA Internal Medicine: http://archinte.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=1108512 with the following conclusion: In the largest prospective cohort study to date, CHD risk was not associated with APOE genotype after controlling for a variety of cardiovascular risk...

Re: Any tests I am missing?

I can't see any that you're missing. Who are you testing with? Are you having your doctor order the tests or are you using a company that provides the doctor referral?

Applying Dr Bredesen's protocol on those diagnosed with AD

My parents (divorced and remarried) are both turning 70 this year. As a 4/4 I recognize they both have E4 as part of their APO status. Neither are interested in learning their status though. So far so good on their cognition. Yet I'm trying to think about what to do if one or both of them start deve...

NY Times article on AD progression

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/05/01/nyregion/living-with-alzheimers.html Long and touching article that follows a woman through the first few years of learning she has AD. There's also a Q&A on the disease saying that lifestyle can affect it. Unfortunately the topic of diet is relegate...
