Happy New Year, JudyH!JudyH wrote:I am also a new member, less than a month. I unintentionally found out I was APOe3/4 recently. I am glad I know. For me it explains something that I knew was genetically wrong in my family with my mother and grandmother dying at 42 of heart attacks and me battling the markers for heart disease since I was 30 years old. I have 3 autoimmune disease, one of my brother's 5 and the other also has 3. We have some bad genes! I am 58 and female.
Knowing is changing a lot for me. I am biting this off one small piece at a time but more aggressively and actively working on the biomarkers I can change, my high tryglycerides, and A1C and fasting glucose just creeping out of the normal range...I am due for bloodwork in March with my regular, not functional medicine, doctor. I am right now preparing a short list of blood tests that I would like added to what is normally run for me, focusing on learning more about my IR and inflammation status. Again not going full ReCODE and asking for the whole list but my APOe4 status, if Bredesen is correct, points me in the direction of likely biomarkers that I need to understand and might be able to improve....APOe3/4 gives me a little more peace and the ability to take my time as I learn and improve my health.
You can also look at the raw genetic data from a company such as 23andMe and look up your results for rs429358 and rs7412. These are referred to as SNPs, which represent variations in your DNA. Once you look up your values for these SNPs, go to this page at snpedia to help you convert the results into your APOE status.
