Re: Failing to Dent LDL

Muddle through indeed; after many days of googling, I feel more confused than ever about what the hell I should eat :? Dr Stavia has reasonable advice on food choices in her Primer. It's a good place to start for nutritional help. She recommends prioritizing lowering insulin resistance over cholest...

Re: Failing to Dent LDL

This website, http://www.insidetracker.com, runs an algorithm on your bloodwork and churns out a result. Dr David Sinclair PhD, the brain behind insidetracker, has a good reputation. A LDL less than 100 may be optimum, but does a young healthy person really need to take supplements or prescriptions...

Re: Failing to Dent LDL

A LDL of 108 looks pretty good to me! I'm not sure that a conventional medical provider would be concerned with it at your young age and health, unless you have had heart problems in the past or are at high risk of future problems. Why do you think your LDL needs to be lower?

Re: Mitochondrial Dysfunction in E4 carriers

Pardon my ignorance, I am still in the learning process now... I wonder if since mitochondria is inherited maternally, does this mean that there have been any studies that show if the apoE4 is from father then it is not contributing towards the AD risk? I guess they'd need to have subjects that are...

Re: Avoid Air Pollution

Some of us have bought "portable" air filters for our home that help with pollution and air borne toxins. I've got an Air IQ device GC Series that filters very small particles (down to 0.0003 microns) as well as VOCs (volatile organic compounds). I run it in the bedroom overnight only, but...

Re: Fish oil supplements bad E/4

Re: Fish oil supplements bad E/4

Those interested in this report by Dr Patrick may be interested in reading a prior discussion on our website. I don't think she says that fish oil supplements are "bad", but are not as effective as fatty fish for E4s due to their lack of phospholipid content. Using the search function (mag...
