Hi ebaker and welcome to our site!
I'm also glad you found us. I'm sure all of us here have had similar feelings when we first discovered our E4 status, so we understand your initial panic. I'm glad to hear you're feeling more optimistic now, because you are right; a 3/4 status does NOT guarantee you will ever develop Alzheimers. There are many members of this site who are 3X (+!) your age, including E4/4s, (like me) who are healthy and asymptomatic. At just 22, you have lots of time to learn about the possible downstream effects of the E4 variant as well as strategies to stay healthy along the way.

I haven't chosen to go that route, so I can't give you advice, but I'm sure others here will weigh in if they have.

If you've read articles claiming higher rates of AD in certain populations, you'll want to dive into the detail to understand the basis for those conclusions. It's possible that that studied population may have a higher incidence of 4/4 carriers, higher rates of chronic diseases related to lifestyle choices, etc. So...perhaps based on data that doesn't relate to you as an individual at all.
