Welcome to the ApoE4.Info site KTW11! We’re so glad to have you as a member of this active community! Your love and devotion to your husband and extended family is an inspiration to us all! I can tell that your big heart, courage and curiosity must already be paving the way for more informed and healthful lifestyle choices for your children and grandchildren- your love shines through! As was shared, our genes are not destiny; we have the ability to turn them on and off and you are taking bold steps to educate yourself on the multitude of choices and options available.
I see you’ve already had a chance to share your story with the community and receive heart-felt responses from fellow members (NF52, Mike, and Nords) as well as helpful tips about navigating on the site from Julie, slacker, and others. As you are already seeing, this forum is a great place to share and receive support!
Fellow members have mentioned several resources available to you on the site and I wanted to provide you the links. If you haven’t already seen it, the primer
is a great starting place to learn about the extensive resources available to you on the ApoE4.info site. It was authored by a member physician who carries two copies of the APOE-ε4 allele, is regularly updated and provides information on the science behind the APOE-ε4 allele, tips on diet and lifestyle choices, biomarkers to check, and prevention strategies. Additionally, you may also be interested in checking out Our Stories
to learn about fellow community members who are embarking on this journey and to share more about your own journey caring for your husband.
Welcome and don’t hesitate to reach out with questions. Best, Mandy
