Grommet, my dad is doing very well, in my opinion. He travels frequently both internationally and domestically, he exercises (treadmill, biking, racquetball) regularly, is mindful of carb intake and the quality of carbs he does eat and his mental outlook is very easy going, non neurotic, which I think is a true blessing! He takes a low dose statin and metformin. He's not on this board and other than the general principle practices I just listed, he doesn't drill down on diet. He has two older sisters and one older brother. One of the sisters (just turned 80 yrs) is showing what I consider moderate cognitive impairment. This is my opinion based on what other family members have reported although her primary care doctor says she's just fine! (So frustrated with much of the medical community's approach to alzheimers/CI, but that's a story for a different day lol). I wish VERY MUCH that I knew the apoe status of these two aunts and uncle. The other aunt/sister is very sharp and bright and I communicate with her frequently on Facebook. She is 82 years old. The uncle is ok, I believe, as I've heard nothing to indicate otherwise.
