I was having a very good day until I read those percentages on Amylee Amos' article saying that 4/4 carriers chances of getting AD increased by 90% when I was suddenly plunged back into that dark place of despair and fear. I received these results via True Health Diagnosis back in March from a script written by my family dr requesting detailed blood work, I was shocked and extremely upset because I had no idea this was being done. I have no family history, from parents, Grandparents, siblings or cousins, and my family is rather large. There is also no history of diabetes in my family. But since that day I've read up on everything I can, and some articles were just so darn depressing. My diet consisted of everything they say are risk factors for AD; High in carbs, dairy, processed foods. I've been addicted to chips for the past 35 years, although I gave them up 3 years ago. So, do I even bother giving up all the foods that I've loved all my life knowing there's a good chance I'll get this disease anyway, or do I just live my life and enjoy what's left of it? I feel like at 65 years of age, the damage has already been done. I wish so badly that this was a bad dream or that my results were an error, I'm actually thinking of being retested, but I'm terrified of getting the same results.
