Er ... no! I'm looking back at my post, and genuinely baffled as to what I said that might've been interpreted that way. (And to be clear, I didn't and don't think there is any need to do so, and indeed had no intention of doing so -- tho' my comments were possibly taken as implicit or indirect criticism of her).Stavia wrote: I do not feel the need to criticise Julie.

It is, of course, rather a different thing to use them to sustain function than as a preventive strategy per se. It is to the latter use that my post was primarily directed, tho' I'd continue to urge caution about going further into "full-on" keto for the reasons I outlined and others I've not gotten around to yet because they involve more complex argumentation.Juliegee wrote:We have members here (myself included) who need some ketones to function. Yeah, we'd all like PROOF of long term efficacy and safety, but some here aren't afforded that luxury.

I didn't really assume that the group was associated w/DP as such (tho' as you know, I was concerned about the appearance of a quote from him on the homepage), nor that he is the focus of your personal approach or advice/input. But (again) he has a bestselling book that has convinced a lot of people that full-onketogenic and/or gluten-free diets are the key to neurological health, and you did just now identify yourself as "a patient of Dr. Perlmutter's."Juliegee wrote:I assure you that you've made another assumption by suggesting that we are in any way associated with Dr. Perlmutter. Yes, I consulted with him pre Grain Brain and received tremendous help...but he is hardly the focus of my message or platform. He actually avoids or neglects to work on the E4 specific pathology- which IS our focus.
Seems like getting ketones higher would be a good thing for ALL genotypes whose brain cells' utilization of glucose has become compromised, but maybe, for whatever reasons, the E4s would do best on a ketone supplement rather than a very low-carb diet. (Or maybe a VLC/KD diet is still a good option, but the optimal fatty acid ratios have yet to be determined...which really makes it no different from the knowledge we have regarding the "optimal diet" [and I use the term loosely] for any other genotype or individual person.)
