Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Hi Starfish, When you talk to your doc, make sure you give him/her a printout of the article in the first link in this thread. Most docs won't see any reason to take hormones if you have no symptoms, but we ApoE4s may be in a different boat, even if more studies need to be done, as long as s/he thin...

Re: E4 interaction with a High Carb Diet

Gilamesh, that's a very good point. It's similar to one I made recently in another thread about the possibility that the free radical load generated by eating more carbs (whatever amount that is) might be offset by an extremely high phytonutrient/antioxidant diet, akin to what's described in the boo...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

So happy to hear it! The only thing I've ever seen in EDS circles is don't ever use progesterone.This is good to know. I wish others would try too.

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Interesting, I did try them together for a couple months to see if the estrogen would offset the progesterone, but no luck. Maybe after a while. How long would you wait?

Re: E4 interaction with a High Carb Diet

This means -- I am not going to stop making this point, sorry! :) -- that we can't tell from the abstract whether it was dietary constituents, or higher caloric intake on the HCD that produced the observed effect.... GB Thanks for making the point again Gilgamesh. I'm too busy to read all the threa...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Hi Starfish, I wonder about this situation where estrogen sensitive breast cancer rules out HRT. I can see where it would be so true when it comes to conventional HRT, and I if I were in your shoes I'd be very cautious too. But something maybe to research and ask your doctor about ... There is a les...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

I'm 51. Also had the meno crash last fall a year ago. Hormone levels didn't yet justify supplementation. Got better during the winter, then began crashing again at the end of Aug. My hormone levels were finally "there" and I got on bioidenticals. But I can't take progesterone due to excess...

Re: Diet Discussion

We're pretty much on the same page, but I am for now keeping the complex carbs in the form of whole grains and some legumes (not breads or pasta) as well. I do go back and forth on all this. I was paleo for a while. One thing for me with paleo is I just am sooooo hungry. They say that's because I do...

Re: Diet Discussion

Yep, just mean those that are easily oxidized. Are SFA also eventually oxidized? Why take the carbs out of Mediterranean? I'm suggesting that low glycemic load carbs, as unprocessed as possible, and *selected and processed to maximize their antioxidant content* may be fine in larger amounts (not lar...

Re: Diet Discussion

Lately I've been thinking that a logical case can be made for, speaking in general terms, vegan, Mediterranean and Paleo. I am thinking maybe this macronutrient balance is a bit of a red herring, *in general*, while one diet might lead to better blood results than another for each individual. Fats l...
