Re: New Member Intro - New Mexico

I believe my mom was an e4/e4 but have no way to prove it. I am an e3/e4. I chose to share this info with one of my two brothers. That brother shares some of the characteristics that I thought might be improved to lower our chances of AD due to his body type and other health issues he has. I chose n...

Re: determining which type of alzheimer's predisposition

I agree with Slacker. At 36, I had no idea which subtype I might lean towards. At approximately 56 years old I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. That at least gave me some areas I needed to work on and improve. It is still not the complete answer or predictor of the future for me. Enjoy life, live as...

Vitamin D question

Newbie starting to gather my biomarkers Vitamin D came back at 30 ng/mL. That is near the bottom of the range which is 25-80 ng/mL. I should target a little higher than that 50 - 80 ng/mL, correct? I am pale Irish background, skin cancer in my family. I saw the discussion recently posted on here abo...

Re: New member intro

Baby steps is all I, as another newbie, can recommend. I started in January after learning my results in December and have made small positive steps ever since. Recently had blood work done and it is paying off. Look at yourself, look at the disease and look at what risk factors are in your control....

Re: New member deciding whether to test

You will have one e4, if your dad is a e3/e3 and your mom an e4/e4 than you are an e3/e4. You get one from your dad and one from your mom and your mom only had a e4 to give you. And yes, your grandparents each had to have at least one e4. Your mom got one e4 from her dad and one from her mom. Welcom...

Re: Tell my children or not?

Honestly, it tells me the same thing. But I am 58, still reasonably healthy and active and beating the odds and I am going to continue to do so as long as I can!

Re: Keto and thyroid problems

It is pretty much a given that keto and hypothyroidism are not a match. If you decide keto is the right road for you, you have to monitor your thyroid numbers and adjust your medications accordingly. One of the biggest issues is that Keto can have a negative impact on the conversion of T4 to T3. Thr...

Re: Tell my children or not?

I sincerely wish that I`d been able to find out my apoe4 status when I was in my teens, before I stupidly got pregnant at 17. the baby was adopted. We have since been in touch, & I warned him about the history of heart disease on my mother`s side of the family, I know that I should also warn hi...

Re: Grateful to find this site Newbie

Finding this community seems like a promising blessing to me!!! Thank you for being here. I am in my 20th year as a caregiver to my husband whose APOE status I do not know. He was diagnosed years ago as Early Onset and tested genetically for that. All negative, yet a genetic connection was clearly ...
