Re: Exercise-Very Encouraging Study. What is your Exercise Prescription?

I'm a 66 y/o woman, life-long high intensity aerobic exerciser gradually decreasing max heart rate with age. Currently I swim outside 2-3 times a week for ~50 minutes, spin class 2-3 times week and a 30 minute on the row machine or stepper for 42 minutes. Because of chronic arthritic knees, I can no...

Re: FrankA - new member

While you're waiting for further testing, you might consider if your CPAP treatment is optimized. Have you noticed a marked sleep improvement over the months of starting therapy? Since I've been on CPAP for years now, please feel free to PM me should you have CPAP questions. Depending on the severit...

Re: High red counts and APOE4

As previously mentioned sleep apnea could be the etiology of the higher RBC. I have sleep apnea and after treatment, my slightly high RBC count has declined to normal since I am no longer having nightly oxygenation desaturations. Having Apoe4 ,despite being thin, not the stereotypical sleep apnea pa...

Re: Lipo a

I should have labeled the 75 mg at Lab Corp and 205 nmol/L, both double normal. Just to add to confusion, once Quest reported zero ("not detected") lp(a), but after this report, the result has been consistently 150-200. As expected, no change with statins, niacin, lysine or vitamin C. Once...

Re: Lipo a

I think NF52 is correct that we will have a much better understanding about lp(a) in a few more years; since I suspect there is multiple types of lp(a), the larger size perhaps not so pathogenic. Like Jcmain, I was quite upset with a lp(a) of 205 on Quest and 75 on LabCorp until I had my 101 y/o 3/4...

Re: The Sleep Apnea Test and Treatment Encouragement Thread!

Thank you so much for this thread! I had my dentist make me an apnea device last month, as I've had trouble sleeping for a while and suspected apnea. I saw a sleep doctor last summer who basically told me that I did not have apnea because I was not an obese man. I am a 49-year old woman, 5'4, 112 l...

Re: The Sleep Apnea Test and Treatment Encouragement Thread!

My in-home test. .. circular, do you remember what test you used? Thanks! Thanks Daymoo for resurrecting this thread. IMHO every aging E4 should be tested, particularly with a small jaw, larger tonsils, larger neck, etc...as the majority of old Swedish women had sleep apnea. Treatment has been a li...

Re: Dr. Peter Attia on Longevity Compounds, Fasting, Supplements and More (Kevin Rose Podcast)

At around 7 minutes, Dr. Peter Attia describes a male with a repeatedly high estradiol level (300) on the commonly used Eliza testing method, but normal on the mass spec testing method. Does this have any implications for female estradiol testing? Did this male have an unusual protein bound estradiol?

Re: herpes & alzheimers.

My almost 101 y/o 3/4 mom had bouts of HZV lip sores for decades. She stockpiled acyclovir and used it even when she thought she needed to ward off another outbreak. Unexpectedly she has not had any HZV in the last few years. She functions with assistance and is conversational with many friends. Now...
