Re: NIH grants Gladstone Institute $4.8M to study ApoE4

Years back I had high hopes for their apoe4 "structure correcters" That research hasn't seemed to move along as quickly as hoped. But I'm glad they're still at it!

Re: Just discovered I'm 4/4, rocked.

A similar experience here, though I am a bit older at 48. You've found the right place. Welcome to the group!

Air pollution and apoe4 - bad to worse

92% of people live in places where particulate matter pollution exceeds the World Health Organization’s guideline for healthy air. The gene variant, which ~25% of people possess, ApoE4 increases the risk that exposure to air pollution leads to #Alzheimers. https://nyti.ms/2TjBgpL Why Is Air Pollutio...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Good point! Inflammation is important, and we can measure that. I actually did that, and saw inflammation go down at the time I made some changes. I hadn't thought of that in a while.

Re: Just got results, I carry 2 E4 genes, I have questions!

Hi. I'm not an expert or medical doctor. I just like reading about this. For what it is worth I'm not aware of any studies showing strong, direct links between apoe4 and these particular symptoms. But I can think of lots of indirect ways in which they could be related. So a search of the literature ...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Hi dfmcapecod, I remember that thread from the summer! I guess we're all waiting on that diagnostic test to come along. :? There was another flurry of news about blood and spinal fluid tests for AB and tau recently. If those come to fruition I suppose we could all evaluate how our lifestyle interven...

Re: statins and antibiotics together

NF52 is spot on, once again, in my opinion. :D (oh, and Slacker too!) The debate about statins is a long one. The best course of action almost certainly depends on our own situations. I've been on low dose statins, of various sorts, for 3-4 years now. The research convinced me that overall the benef...

Re: Hello and my research :)

Hi and welcome. Thanks for your interest in the research. Can I ask some similar questions, which seem important? Like NF52, I'm interested to know more about the study you propose. As you know, institutions and grant-funding agencies require studies to go through many rounds of review, work with in...
