The biggest surprise was my high risk factors relating to cardiovascular measurements. I'm starting more cardio immediately! My doctor in San Diego is certified in the Bredesen Protocol and will be a great resource as I meet with him again, but until then I'm confused about diet. Apparently the dietary suggestions are different for APOE4 than for other genetic levels -- and I read suggestions for the MIND Diet, and Keto and so on, but there are a lot of suggestions there that are specifically NOT good for APOE4, like a glass of wine and many grains, etc. Is there a dietary guide specifically for APOE4 so I don't go in different directions?

But I don't think all the keto recommendations apply to Alz E4. Thank goodness we can have a piece of dark chocolate! Keto allows sugar substitutes -- are they ok for E4 in moderation?
