Re: An informal survey on Fasting

I also can taste ketones occasionally. I keep waiting for my dog to react....they're supposed to detect things like this right? Well, my mutant labradoodle either has a poor nose or figures that if I die he'll finally get to sleep on the bed. :) My labradoodle doesn't seem to notice the ketones eit...

Re: New 4/4 Introduction

I, like everyone else receiving bad news had an initial period of being very overwhelmed with this information, and that lasted for several weeks. However, with several months to reflect on it I have started looking at the positives. I am in my early 50's, and have had several co-workers that have ...

Re: Non-diabetic low insulin maybe not so good?

Just throwing another study into the mix, which supports the idea that low insulin may not be such a good thing: Low fasting serum insulin and dementia in nondiabetic women followed for 34 years , Neurology, July 31, 2018 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6093770/ Our results confirmed a ...

Re: An informal survey on Fasting

Anna, not sure why you are pushing out your "breakfast" when you are really breaking your fast with your coffee loaded with fat...? If you had black coffee early, and wait to add the fats until your breakfast, then you would be extending your fast. At least that is my understanding - anyo...

Re: An informal survey on Fasting

1. 4/4 2. Attempt 12-16 hours IF most days. Generally have coffee with a lot of fat (coconut oil, MCT, cream) and stevia (no sugar) and then push breakfast as late as possible, while also listening to my body. I have not attempted any longer fasts. 3. Reason: mostly for brain health. 4. Difficulty: ...

Re: 4/4 with Endometrial Cancer

I went through surgical menopause at the age of 50. Although my surgeon prescribed 1 mg estradiol, beginning a couple days following my surgery, I had a rough time. I can’t recall when the crying began, but I do recall crying uncontrollably for no reason during at least the first couple weeks. I sus...

Re: For those who have children.

I'm glad that I did not know my ApoE status (4/4) before having children a couple decades ago, or I might have avoided passing my genes on. When I got my results, almost two years ago, I was horrified to learn at that same moment that my children must carry at least one copy. I felt so guilty! But a...

Re: Parents took 23andMe test, one with 4/4

I don't want to tell him, but at the same time I want him to change his lifestyle to help reduce some of the risk factors. I've tried to get him to take better care of himself for a long time now with no avail. I feel like he would change if he knew this, but I don't want to terrify him with this i...

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 hi...

Re: Re:

Suddenly this evening I'm warming up to metals testing. I'm working on determining whether I have ADD and apparently ruling out lead is one of the steps. I guess maybe if my amalgam mercury levels are high I won't feel so bad about having the dental work; whereas if I don't see a high reading (any ...
