Re: Cheese, eggs, and butter mediate my LDL-P and inflammation markers

If I can add a datapoint to Russ question about eggs, I recently removed diary fats and minimized coconut and other sat fats but kept a moderate amount of eggs. My LDL-P were eerily close to yours - 2200's down to 1300's after dropping the sat fats. Each egg has only about 1.5g sat fat, so I don't s...

Re: Dietary Ketosis Aids Memory in Mild Cognitive Impairment

George, thanks. Good news for our non-ε4 carrier friends and loved ones, but probably not relevant to us, alas: Krikorian didn't stratify by APOE status, and we know ketosis functions very diff'ly depending on the presence of an ε4 allele. GB GB, We know that a proprietary synthetic ketone interven...

Re: Carbs & Alzheimer’s: Separating Fact From Fiction

Circ, I had not looked closely at the Wiki until you mentioned it. It certainly needs links to research. I tend to binge on PubMed on an irregular basis, at least for dementia and cardiac issues. I'll try to keep Wiki in mind next time I go down a rabbit hole. I should probably keep better records o...

Re: SFA v Carbs v MUFA's: clinical trial divided by apoe type

Richard I also cut my LDL-P from 2000+ to under 1300 but without much change to the diet but including Niacin and a few other over the counter supplements. It killed by testosterone and sex drive, so I stopped the supplementation. Have you seen similar negative effects with your Niacin intake? Gift...

Re: My Lipids under Dr. Gundry's Protocol

George, I'm with you on seeking out actionable ideas where the RCT's are missing. One thing that gives me pause is the notion that some have of throwing everything with supposed potential based on non-RCT research at a given problem - the shotgun or "let's hope somethings sticks" approach....

Re: My Lipids under Dr. Gundry's Protocol

George, Glad to hear your testing is going well with him. My concern is more about the claimed rigor with which he is writing up his findings for the academic world, not that he isn't helping you and others in the clinic. My wife is a pediatric neurologist. I think I have a good idea what it takes t...

Re: Carbs & Alzheimer’s: Separating Fact From Fiction

Richard, I am about to digress again, please forgive. I am enjoying your evidence based approach, as that is where my training and work lies. What particular prevention strategies are you following? I like to start with the stuff that should be done anyway -- those things that make sense even if th...

Re: SFA v Carbs v MUFA's: clinical trial divided by apoe type

Very interesting Richard. What form does your diet exactly take? Eg your macronutrient percentages and main sources of fat? Currently, for fats I focus on lean meats, some fatty salmon, pork and eggs, substantial amounts of avocado, macadamia nuts, some EVOO, cashews, almonds and 80% dark chocolate...

Re: My Lipids under Dr. Gundry's Protocol

RichardS, God bless for getting through that thread :D We love when lurkers become posters- Kudos! Very interesting to see your diet/lipid interactions. You seems to have had an initial positive response to HFLC that tempered with time. I'm totally on the lookout to see if the same is happening wit...

Re: Carbs & Alzheimer’s: Separating Fact From Fiction

Whatever you think of Kresser, and I rather like his approach, I think he was spot on with his criticism of Perlmutter. As a neuropsychologist, I so wanted his book to be a serious science-based work on that intersection of diet and brain health. In the end, I was really disappointed. He quotes a lo...
