Question if I have 2 copies of the apoE4 does that mean I will get it later on?.
Hi KrisRich, I want to add my welcome to you and reinterate what the others have said: Genetic information like 2 copies of ApoE4 shows a risk factor, but does not determine your future. It certainly does not mean that you will get later on. There is so much that you can do to reduce your risk, and it sounds like you are already off to a great start with two tremendous resources: the accumulated knowledge and supportive community here on this website and Dr. Bredesen’s book. You can do so much to impact the environment in which the genes either express themselves or do not. Since you are already following an Ayurvedic diet and adjusting your food intake to go with Dr Bredesen’s recommendations that is another plus, and then you have a head start with the supplements you are taking. Looking at the Primer, as Jan recommended, is a good way to introduce yourself to further steps you can take to optimize your long term health.
