Re: Got my oxidized LDL results

I wonder how myeloperoxidase compares to LP-PLA2 testing. I tested LP-PLA2 last year and was found to be well within the normal range. :) Earlier in this thread, I was writing about the high correlation of oxLDL and Lp(a) which for me has been mostly well above lab cutoffs. I found this paper ("...

Re: Got my oxidized LDL results

You got the basic test, I assume, right? -- http://www.lifeextension.com/vitamins-supplements/itemlc817472/oxidized-ldl Since I'm not in the US very often, I was actually thinking about the fuller panel, instead: http://www.lifeextension.com/vitamins-supplements/itemlc100034/oxidized-ldl-panel But ...

Re: Got my oxidized LDL results

Out of curiosity, why'd you stop the resveratrol? Julie -- definitely happy about this. I bought a large bottle of resveratrol and never refilled when I ran out. I'd like to say that I had some definite plan, but it was more like "Hmm, one less pill to take. OK." Richard, always good to h...

Re: Got my oxidized LDL results

To revive the original oxLDL discussion, I finally got around to testing mine through Life Extension. Very pleased to have scored 34 U/L where the listed lab cutoff was <60. Based on the original cardiac risk graph as a function of oxLDL that Julie posted in the original post, I'm somewhere around t...

Re: Progress on mitochondrial hypothesis

Very cool. J11 I'd think saliva mitos wouldn't necessarily reflect brain neuron mitos? I agree this is cool science. In fact, just this morning I attended a lab meeting of a colleague who is starting a mito study focused on schizophrenia. Please keep in mind that the study Julie linked to used mous...

Re: Washington Post Article Down on Gene Testing/MTHFR Etc.

Do you think that 99% figure is an actual quantification? I think there may be too many exceptions; ie there may be more than 1% genes (relatively few are included in typical genomic reports) that are actionable at some level. If so, the person throwing out the 99% figure for media effect isn't doi...

Re: Washington Post Article Down on Gene Testing/MTHFR Etc.

Having been doing research on behavioral genetics for the last 16 years, the article resonates with my viewpoint on much of the public reaction to current genetic research findings. The conclusion is worth a second look: But perhaps most worrisome is the fact that MTHFR isn't alone. "Right now,...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

The central part of what Dr. Gundry is doing is an extensive suite of tests (mine are uploaded in the post after this post: https://www.apoe4.info/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=570&p=16389&hilit=gundry+wife+sdldl#p16389 ). Then prescribing dietary changes plus supplements to to modify the ...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

I'd like to see some peer reviewed science-y work on this before I cut out legumes and nightshades. I've dived deep into the science on diet and autoimmunity. The stuff I have seen on legumes and nightshades do not rise to the level of peer-reviewed clinical trials. Mostly it is about taking in vit...
