As a young (but still 10 years older than you) asymptomatic 4/4, I wish for you what I have experienced so far in my journey.
18 months into implementing (the basics) of the protocol I'm healthier and happier than I've ever been, and consider the knowledge of my APOE status as a great gift.
Diet, exercise, sleep and relaxation/meditation are transforming me!
Sending you love and light on your journey, you'll find an exceptional community here to support you.

All the things we do to prevent AZ will help us prevent other health problems and stay in good general health as well. The fact you are following a pretty healthy lifestyle, practice yoga and keep yourself intellectually challenged is a marvelous start. That you are a medical resident is great news because you can aid in spreading the word that there is something we can do to prevent AZ.
Sending you a big welcome hug!

I am 31 and just found out last week that I am 4/4 through 23andMe and I am still dealing with the emotional aftermath. I was especially shocked at the results as I have no history of dementia in my family with 3/4 grandparents living beyond age 84 (without cognitive dysfunction) and my paternal grandfather passing away recently at 99, living independently with my grandmother (currently 94) until 1 month before his death. My parents plan to get tested soon, as they are both at least 3/4, given my results.
After I discovered my status, I immediately found this website and read the Primer, which lead me to Dale Bredesen's book, which I am in the middle of now. I live a pretty healthy lifestyle, practice a lot of yoga, and keep myself intellectually challenged in my daily life as a medical resident.
I know there are other young and asymptomatic 4/4's out there in this group, and I was wondering if anyone has had success implementing the ReCODE protocol at a younger and/or asymptomatic ages. I am worried about not getting much traction with my primary care provider, since I am otherwise healthy. I also don't know if this is considered "overkill" at this point. In the mean time I plan to eliminate inflammatory foods as much as possible and reduce my sugar intake, which I think is relatively low anyway.
Thanks for listening,
