Re: New e4/e4

I celebrate when I hit 7 hours (especially consecutive) Yes, it was my goal too: get two 7 hr sleeps in a row. I lowered the threshold by 30 min after I read a study by FitBit, https://blog.fitbit.com/sleep-study/ , the takeaway is that for women age > 55 average sleep time is around 6.5 hours. The...

Re: New e4/e4

Thank you, Anna! Not an easy journey so far. You're welcome :) No, it is not an easy journey. But most days, I'm glad to know my status. It took me a while to get to that point. It also took time to be able to research AD prevention without triggering major anxiety or sense of doom. Thanks for the ...

Re: New to Site and Seeking Guidance

Hi NatureLover. I recently learned about my e4/e4 status. I am still on the rollercoaster of some days believing my vision for my future is now vastly different, versus other days where I think I can potentially stave off the onset of Alzheimer's. Yep, that's exactly how I felt two plus years ago wh...

Re: New e4/e4

Welcome to the community Sabaka. I am also 4/4 (I learned my status a couple years ago at age 52). This is quite a journey, isn't it? I am intimately familiar with the misery of chronic sleep deprivation resulting from relentless insomnia. I am not sure if you are aware that the anticholinergic effe...

Re: Newbie introduction

Welcome Metta4! I love your username :) I'm sorry about your mom and her brother. Both of my parents gifted me a copy of ApoE4, and they are both doing OK at ages 79 and 80 in spite of a strong family history otherwise. My mom eats a healthy diet and takes a lot of supplements, and my dad keeps phys...

Re: Heavy Metals testing

Thanks for posting this which explains what is behind your doctor's concern about low urine pH. Please post when you get the results of the challenge test. I got the results of the provoked test: very high lead (18ug/g creat -- at the high end of the red zone) and high thallium. Lead was within &qu...

Re: Vitamin A protects cognition in E4 carriers

Try to get Vitamin A from whole foods like vegetables and fruits (or meat sources). This study concludes that taking vitamin A supplements may increase mortality: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17327526 I think this is an important meta-analysis that we should all take note of, so I copied and...

Re: Keto Diet and hypothyroidism

I just did some searching and found that the Keto Diet is not recommended for those that have hypothyroidism (as I do). Any members have any knowledge on this topic? I also have Hashimoto's and think this is an excellent question. I'm guessing you probably encountered this discussion: https://ketod...

Re: 4/4 female mid40s

Torimintz, your situation sounds beyond difficult on many levels. I am so sorry! I am at a loss for meaningful suggestions. And your mom's situation is one of my biggest fears as a 4/4. I often wonder what I can do now to prevent this sort of isolation and lack of brain-health measures if I become u...

Re: apoe4 and osteoporosis.

Hi Anna, I'm sorry to hear you also have osteoporosis. I'm early in the research phase and haven't decided what to do (beyond continuing my bHRT). Sorry for the extremely delayed response! Christmas (and life in general) happened! Thanks for gathering all those links, which I finally had a chance t...
