Welcome, DanaOBX We are happy that you have found the ApoE4.Info website and that you are interested in participating in the biomarkers study.DanaOBX wrote:Hi,
I am interested in participating. Please keep me posted.
Since you have recently joined, I’d like to point your towards some resources available here that you might not have found yet.
The Primer, written by Stavia, a physician member, is an excellent overview of the ApoE4 allele, explaining what the ApoE alleles do in our bodies, what risks are associated with the ApoE4,
And prioritized steps for reducing the risks and improving our odds of living long, healthy lives .
We have a Wiki that goes in depth on many relevant topics. And if you are interested in seeing what has been posted by community members on a specific topic, the Search function is a tremendous tool. Click the magnifying glass to the left of you user name and enter a word or phrase and it will bring up all posts containing what you entered.
Other tools for navigating the site can be found in the How-To Get the Most out of the ApoE4.info website section of the WiKi. That will give you information on subscribing to threads, quoting when responding to another member so they are notified of your response, previewing and saving drafts of posts, and other useful tidbits. As someone who had to discover these things slowly over time (by trial and many errors) before we had this WiKi section, I highly recommend it!
You will find a supportive community here as well as a wealth of information. If you’d like to tell us about yourself and let us know what brings you to the site the Our Stories forum is a good place to do that.
On behalf of the community, a warm welcome to you.
