Re: Epilepsy and APOE 4

My mother (E3/E4) experienced grand mal seizures in her late thirties/early forties. She was prescribed phenobarbital for a time to help control the seizures. I was a teenager at the time and have no real information to share about why she experienced these or why they spontaneously disappeared. I p...

Re: Which food bloggers and recipe sites do you like?

I like David Mendosa's website on diabetes. He's an older guy with extensive knowledge about blood sugar regulation. Rather than controlling his type 2 diabetes with meds, he first attempts to control with diet. He also has high cholesterol (I wonder if he knows his apoe genotpye?). Since I don't ea...

Re: http://curealz.org/

Julie, GB..here is a link to the entire article Julie mentioned above. The very last sentence of their conclusion makes me wonder if the authors were trending toward high cholesterol being a factor in AD...total speculation on my part though. Cholesterol and Alzheimer’s Disease: A Still Poorly Under...

Re: Not doing too well....

Hilbil...I read over your intro and I want to highly encourage you to consider a brisk walk every day, if your health is up to it. Of all the research I've read on Alzheimers, diabetes and other health problems, moderate, daily exercise seems to be the "one-stop-shop" for all. It's not a c...

Re: NMR Data Sample

My lipid appointment went well. My lpir score is 13 which is good. My dr was out sick today so I saw his partner. He did not have any big concerns other than dropping my ldl a few points (below 130). I said I would be more regular with the benecol chews and that was it. I get a recheck in 6 mths.

Re: NMR Data Sample

Mark..I don't have a listed LP-IR calculation on either my VAP taken in July of this year, or on my recent NMR. However, the VAP indicated large, bouyant pattern A, no evidence of metabolic syndrome and the hs-crp was .30. There were significantly more results listed on the VAP than on the NMR. Does...

Re: Lipid Results

Ski...one more thing...I have LP(a) of 11, one point over reference range. Your's is much higher. In my research today, I found a pubmed article referencing a snp predisposing to elevated Lp(a). You might check this snp in 23andme; the study found that aspirin significantly reduced cardiovascular ri...
