Re: apoe4 and osteoporosis.

I'm trying to figure out why one might think e4 would jeopardize bone density. I guess I can’t blame my worsening osteoporosis on being E4/E4. My doctor wants me to start an osteoporosis Rx. I’ve read too many bad consequences from taking these meds. I have to find another way to improve my BMD. I’m...

Re: I'm here to help . . . and be helped

Greetings from another mid 50's 4/4. It sounds like you are doing a great job with prevention! I'm sure many members of this group will very much appreciate your expertise in the area of balancing hormones. Women in menopause tend to have the most dramatic symptoms when their estradiol and progester...

Re: Heavy Metals testing

Very interesting, Anna. 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 am now about 1/2 way though my yearlong DMSA chelation process. Can't say I feel any difference ... except quite a bi...

Re: These stats sound horrible

Since finding out my 4/4 status earlier this year, I have been on an emotional roller coaster. While I have moments of being ok, I am deeply disturbed and freaked out by the prospect of losing my sanity and the essence of ME. Karina52, I hear you. I was really thrown when I learned my 4/4 status 2 ...

Re: Re:

Hi Anna, My doctor did not mention anything about urine pH to me pre-test. Also, though I might have overlooked it, I don’t recall any mention of pH in the Doctor’s Data info that accompanies the test, so this is a new twist. If you can find out the rationale behind your doctor’s requirement of hig...

Re: APOE4 friendly version of Bulletproof coffee?

FTO downregulates the IRX3 thermogenesis process—which essentially means it turns off the fat burning process. Interesting. I never took the time to research FTO because I have so many other genetic surprises that seemed more important, and, being thin, the FTO gene actually has helped me believe t...

Naturally if bloods change then perhaps it's time to re evaluate.



That's my working theory. So maybe what is an Apoe4 friendly version of Bulletproof coffee depends on the individual.

Re: APOE4 friendly version of Bulletproof coffee?

This is something I have been wondering too. I'm also 4/4 with two copies of the FTO snp that has received the most attention in terms of increased appetite... I know many ApoE4 carriers avoid saturated animal fats, but I think the jury is still out on this one. I personally do not avoid them and u...

Re: APOE4 friendly version of Bulletproof coffee?

This is something I have been wondering too. I'm also 4/4 with two copies of the FTO snp that has received the most attention in terms of increased appetite. I drink a modified version of a bulletproof coffee for breakfast most mornings, usually with a mix of MCT, coconut oil, and cream with stevia ...

Re: Duty to inform family?

The topic of disclosure has been discussed, but you're right, not much seems to come up during a search, including a thread I started awhile back: Thoughts on Disclosure (Who have you told?). https://www.apoe4.info/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4562 Most of the discussion pertains more to the moral duty to...
