Interesting....apoe2/4 had outcomes similar to apoe4/4, i.e. the 2, while protective on its own, can't cancel out the 4.


Thank you for sharing. I'm so glad someone finally did some research on this.

Re: Alzheimer's caregivers, guardians, and conservators

What do you think about the utility and feasibility of converting all available financial accounts to joint ownership? Please talk about the pros and cons of doing so. Thanks in advance. It worked for my sister. My other sister, who lived nearby, was joint owner on her accounts and paid her bills w...

Re: Is apoe4 an evolutionary mistake?

On the contrary. For 96% of human history, we were all ApoEε4 homozygotes (ε4/4s). The other alleles showed up “recently” in evolutionary terms. ApoEε3 appeared 220,000 years ago, and only 80,000 years ago ApoEε2 appeared. The ApoE ε4 allele is the oldest of the ApoE variants, having existed literal...

Re: omega-3 index won't budge

Lastly, I wondered if the maximum omega-3 index one might achieve could be determined partly by genetics, such that for some people, an index of 10-12, considered optimum for E4's might be pie-in-the-sky. I’m a 4/4 and I regularly get my Omega-3 index in the desired 10-12 range. I supplement with f...

What's for dinner? We have recipes

Just a reminder for folks, do you know we have a wiki with recipes? Recipes from our members I just added 3 recipes, not mine, but "borrowed" from fellow ApoE4 and excellent cook Janét Kniss. She has a YouTube channel that can be subscribed to called "Lectin Free Solutions" where...

Re: Searching for answers

Good question! Unfortunately, there probably aren’t any good answers out there exploring 4 status and pregnancy. There’s yourself and your baby you are no doubt concerned with. As a 4/4, you know your child will carry at least one 4. The good news is we’re learning so much that your child could easi...

Re: Dr. Bredesen interviews Julie G

Very interested in Julie's experience with Kaatsu, that she mentions in the interview. I have ordered bands that cost about 40 dollars - not sure about the investment in the Kaatsu device. Does anyone else have any experience with Kaatsu or BFR? I too am doing Kaatsu. I don’t do the recommended exe...

Re: Physical activity may not reduce AD chance?

Meanwhile I tried a 30 min walk yesterday and ended up with some weird foot pain so I’m limping. I have a long road ahead to get more active! It's always daunting to read articles about how critical exercise is for brain health when a person has physical limitations. So when a paper like the one yo...
