A Finnish study found a 4/4 woman centenarian (exact age not reported) who was cognitively normal.

Hello U07jrb,
I'm Starfish and I'm 82 and a 4/4. I too have often wondered how many APOE4 people we have on this site that are 75 and over. Some people may not wish to give their actual ages online. Perhaps if any of you are 75 or over you could PM me and I would be glad to report the resulting numbers of people of a given age.

We all love to hear about KatieS's mom who is 99 and doing well. She is an inspiration to us all. Katie's mom was way ahead of her time in adopting good health practices. I personally don't know anyone who is over 92 regardless of their apoe4 status. This makes me think I'd better try to make the best use of my time while I'm fortunate enough to still be here.
