Frequent saunas appear protective from AD

Partaking regularly in the relaxing practice of sauna bathing is associated with a decreased risk for dementia and Alzheimer's disease (AD) — at least in men, new research suggests. Further results from the Kuopio Ischemic Heart Disease (KIHD) study, which included more than 2300 middle-aged men in ...

Re: Neurologist and a 4/4

I hope to study lipid metabolism in detail during 2017. There's a pretty extensive course, over 100 hours, I'm signing up for through the National Lipid Association. I completed it earlier but forgot most of it since I didn't use it. Also, the science keeps changing. I'll report what I learn re: apo...

Re: Neurologist and a 4/4

My mother was technically pre-diabetic and was over treated. I've heard Dr. Bredesen speak several times. I think he's doing good work. His approach can be subjected to controlled trials, it just would be hard. And it would be difficult finding funding. Most science involves reductionism, that is, t...

Re: Neurologist and a 4/4

Stavia, I wondered what it is like for him to be the only one there who is that sharp. Does he feel that he's treated as if he's not 100% because of the likely bias of assumption that he's not, or is he a super star there? SusanJ, my father had some form of dementia in his late 70s, likely Alzheimer...

Re: New study examining the effect of APOE-ε4 knowledge

I learned about my status by accident. My wife was doing genealogy investigations on our family. I sent my spit to 23andMe. Surprise! Being a libertarian at heart, I favor open information. But there is a cost with this freedom. Many may not have the capability to process the knowledge and act on it...

Re: Neurologist and a 4/4

I'll add a little more about me. I'm in my early 60s. I've had no memory disturbances, although now I constantly question myself about trivia as a means of monitoring. I'm guessing others here do the same. Learning my apoE status has changed how I view life. I've known for only a few months, so the ...

Stavia,

I wonder what life is like for that 1/200 without dementia.

Re: Neurologist and a 4/4

I'm sure where to begin. The recent learning of my E/E status got my attention. An irony is that I've helped complete seven clinical trials in the treatment of Alzheimer's and am starting another on imaging soon. I'm not a well rounded expert on dementia and am more of a researcher. But I'm broadeni...

Neurologist and a 4/4

Found out about my 4/4 from 23andme. My wife is heavily involved in genealogy. We all sent in our DNA.

She's 3/3. All four of our kids are 3/4. It was then no surprise that I'm 4/4.

I'm starting to focus on Alzheimer disease in a new way. Lots to learn.
