Re: Trying to understand the Brain Blood Barrier

Thanks for replying, Brian. I had seen that research. I guess it's a pretty good idea to get as much DHA in phospholipid form as I can whether through food or supplements. I suppose also in the ideal scenario, Singulair is repairing my brain blood barrier a bit and allowing some of the other DHA thr...

Trying to understand the Brain Blood Barrier

I started frequenting this board because I have high HDL and LDL cholesterol (but good ratio and good triglycerides) and my mother has late-onset Alzheimer's. I figure I have one copy of the apoe4 gene, because of the above details, and because two of my three kids also have high cholesterol despite...

Re: study on fermented dairy --> lower inflammatory markers

Floramaria, Thank you for the biomarker info. This will give me something to discuss with my doctor. At my age and "external" fitness level, it can be hard to get a doctor to see the reason for worry. If he spent any significant time in a memory care unit, I think he might see the urgency ...

Re: study on fermented dairy --> lower inflammatory markers

Interesting about the a1 vs a2 thing. I buy goat's milk yogurt from trader Joe's, but regular plain kefir milk from there as well. That is what I used to make cultured buttermilk, rather than grains. A couple of tablespoons of kefir milk in a pint of cream will do the trick in 2 days, covered with c...

study on fermented dairy --> lower inflammatory markers

So, this study is on 12 people. I super wish the researchers had included different parameters (low-fat fermented) and more subjects, as well as APOE genotyped them, but it's something to note. (Especially if like me, cheese and yogurt help your BMI not go too low. I can start a thread on how to mak...

Re: What company to test with? (high cholesterol and family hx alz)

Thank you everyone for the welcome and additional info regarding insurance. I'll probably keep things out of my records, though I believe long-term care insurance is being dropped as a product by most insurance companies. It probably won't be an option for me and my husband, but making sure we are a...

Re: What company to test with? (high cholesterol and family hx alz)

Stavia, Thank you. Yes the info you gave does help! Also since posting my questions, I've read about 5 pages of this sub-forum, including links to the should you test and info about promethease. So much to learn. Thanks again! Melissa P.S. There have been some promising developments with APOE4 and C...

What company to test with? (high cholesterol and family hx alz)

Hi, I'm going to try to keep this short. Haha no health intro /q&a is short. My first question is what company do you all recommend testing for apoe genotype? I'm seeing my primary care doctor in October and want to be prepared with info if it's something I'd do through him/insurance. I've read ...
