Re: Ugly Cholesterol Results

kayell, I’ve had some pretty bad NMR panels and cutting saturated fat, especially from animal sources with the exception of eggs (Matrix diet), has really helped in my case. I’m still not in the target range for LDL-P, but I’m a lot closer. I always wonder if it’s blood glucose (I’m diabetic) or sat...

Re: HRT Stories

Does anyone know of an expert on hormones in clinical practice in the Midwest, someone also aware of ApoE4 and its implications? I know most functional med doctors do HRT, but I would also like to consult with a hormone guru, someone like Dr. Trutt (whom I’ve read about here). I’m on HRT but am stru...

Re: Which glucose meter should I invest in?

I spent a quite a bit of time earlier today comparing meters and getting incredibly frustrated with their inconsistencies – 20-25 mg/dl across meters. I’m trying to tighten up my blood glucose control (I’m on mealtime insulin) and I really need to know what my levels are pre and post meals. When my ...

Re: Metformin increases risk of AD?

Let's see if this works (never attached a file before). I was surprised I could get this one, as I usually don't have access to the biomedical articles. ImfeldetalMetformin.pdf Moderator note - I deleted the attached paper (doi: 10.1111/j.1532-5415.2012.03916.x) because our copyright infringement po...

Re: Low dose Naltrexone (?)

Julie, yes, duh on my part, it would make sense that the insulin would improve my cognition. I think my perspective is skewed these days – definitely operating on the good = no negative effect principle. I took Miralax, per the recommendation of my gastric surgeon, until I saw your original post on ...

Re: Low dose Naltrexone (?)

Gilgamesh, interesting article. Thanks. I really do think I could benefit from the anti-inflammatory effects of LDN. Wish I could use potentially promising treatments like this without having to worry so much about side effects. Juliegee, yes, I’m still on the ketogenic diet. HRT has helped my cogni...

Re: Low dose Naltrexone (?)

Stavia, thank you for weighing in on this. I’ve just been catching up on my reading here. I’m so sorry for your loss. Juliegee, yes, I had a fundoplication in May of 2014 after years of uncontrollable reflux due to a structural problem. I’ve had documented SIBO since 2006, but the symptoms did get m...

Low dose Naltrexone (?)

Has anyone had experience with low dose Naltrexone? I’m having a gastrointestinal crisis (severe small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and my new gastro, who specializes in this condition, feels that I could really benefit from taking this drug. But I’m wary, because of my e4/4 status, about taking ...

Re: Strategies that Improved my Cognition

I started having cognitive issues, largely tied to diet, in my late 30s and have been eating low carb since then, but I was cheating a lot and wasn’t consistently in ketosis. About a year ago (age 49), my brain shut down and I was unable to function without being in full ketosis. It was at this time...

Re: Medical Personnel Alerts for ApoE4

I was thinking that some of us might also want to have a list of do's and don’ts pertaining to head injuries, so that we have this information readily available should we need it. Is there anything that could help minimize the long-term impact given our vulnerability? I’ve gone through various sourc...
