Welcome to the community,1ja2s2!
There's a lot to absorb on the site, isn't there? I've been here for a couple of years, and it took me a while to realize that I could find the topics that were most relevant to me and give myself permission not to learn everything! So here's a resource that may help you do that: "How-To" Get the most out of the ApoE4.info website
. It has screen shots and brief directions for how to quote users so they are notified of your post, how to subscribe to topics and conversations of interest, what all those icons next to your user name in the upper right corner of the screen do, and more.
As for the biomarker study, don't worry! The "urgent" part of that was just to gauge the interest of forum members in a not-yet-available study of biomarkers. If you happen to be interested in currently available clinical studies of people with ApoE 4, just post a reply about that, or do a "search" (magnifying glass icon by your name) for "clinical trials".
We hope you'll check out the topics in the Wiki
, our own online resource of background info and deep dives into topics, curated by some of our members who have done the legwork so we don't have to re-discover everything.
And if you're new to the whole area of ApoE4, or looking for a balanced view of what strategies you can use now to reduce your risk later, the Primer
is a great place to start. It was written by our physician member Stavia, who is herself ApoE 4/4.
Feel free to tell us about your own experience and interest in ApoE 4 and your current needs or questions by posting a New Topic in Our Stories
Happy 4th of July!
