Re: Zilkha Symposium on AD

What complicates this is that it is generally considered that the brain makes all its own apoE and the the plasma apoE all comes from the liver, and the two pools do not mix. But maybe that breaks down in Alzheimer's disease with the leaky blood brain barrier? Harrison -- Very good point. In my day...

Re: Zilkha Symposium on AD

As I mentioned earlier: I've long assumed the main idea is that having clogged vascular in the brain is just another hazard to overall risk for dementia, but there was research that more directly linked neurovasculature health with the pathology of AD. The presentation by Dr. Iadecola on "Neuro...

Re: Zilkha Symposium on AD

Julie, I, too, was baffled when I thought I heard Holtzman say we are unsure whether increasing or decreasing apoe would be therapeutic. I may have to chalk that one up to misunderstanding him. As Stavia said, a lot of it was above my pay grade and many of the speakers talked at a pace that left me ...

Re: Increasing RS+Soluble Fiber, while lowering carbs+legumes?

It's been a couple years since I looked, but I recall cooked plantains and bananas don't have much resistant starch. It is mainly about the raw RS2. Still useful if you eat bananas with some green on the peel.

Re: Increasing RS+Soluble Fiber, while lowering carbs+legumes?

Roasting and cooling in the fridge chopped russet potatoes (small cubes) to the point where they are browned and weigh about half their original weight was once tested as making about 50-60% of the starch resistant (RS3). The ultimate test is pre- and post- glucose testing on yourself. It is a real,...

Re: NMR and LP(a) results
