Re: Anxiety and APOE4

Niki - I am e3/e4 , not e4/e4 but let me give you a different perspective. My grandmother died at 42 years old from a heart attack, orphaning my mother at age 9. My mother, in turn, died at at age 42 from a heart attack leaving three children from age 12-16. I knew nothing about APOE at that time bu...

Re: Beta-blockers

I am very sorry to have quoted your post with the wrong user name in an earlier welcome!! I'll blame my post-bunion surgery brain, which seemed to have drifted down to my right foot for a few weeks! It seems that you have had a birthday between when you joined on Dec. 27 and now. So as someone with...

Beta-blockers

Did a search on your website and saw some negative responses as well as positive responses on the use of beta blockers. History - Strong family history of CAD, mother and grandmother died at 42 of heart attacks. Mother had SVT arrhythmia, I also had episodes of this same arrhythmia beginning at 14 y...

Re: Breastfeeding

Honestly Christy - you are young and healthy. Enjoy life and your beautiful children. Eat healthy as a family and worry about AD and prevention in a few years after your kids are in middle school or beyond. I thought JulieG's recommendations were spot on. This is not the time of your life to worry a...

Re: New and Suffering from Analysis Paralysis

I am in a similar situation. 58, accidentally found out my APOE status one month ago. No family history of AD but my mother and grandmother died at 42 of CAD. I know where my e4 came from! I read Bredesen's book as well as this website and it is all pretty overwhelming. For me, I took a look at my c...

Re: New member questions

Thank you! That list is helpful. I like Stavia's common sense approach as I read and research on here. For example, in the bloodwork I do have my A/G ratio was just short and my Albumin is a bit under Bredesen's recommendation. I read her opinion on the value of this biomarker and thought to myself ...

Re: New member questions

I am also a new member, less than a month. I unintentionally found out I was APOe3/4 recently. I am glad I know. For me it explains something that I knew was genetically wrong in my family with my mother and grandmother dying at 42 of heart attacks and me battling the markers for heart disease since...

Re: Lot of info here to digest for us newbies

Thank you all, the write up in the primer did help. I happen to have a gyn who even at the height of the "HRT is evil" time period said it was sometimes the correct choice and not as wrong as it was being made out to be. A lot of unknowns in this topic, it seems. Not going to let this run ...

Lot of info here to digest for us newbies

57 year old female here, recently discovered I was e3/e4. No family history of AD. Probably because they all died early of heart disease. Both my mother and grandmother died from heart attacks at age 42. Suspect there might have been some e4/e4's there. Have been actively treating my CAD risks since...
