GeorgeN, How much of Gundry's protocol have you adopted? All of it or parts of it? And if parts of it, which parts?
Ladyjane wrote: Since I have switched over to a LCHF diet last April and most recently delved into the research available for specific APO4 diet, I seem to be going two steps forward and one step backwards because of conflicting information--sometimes given by the same expert, doctor, or scientist. I am still uncertain of Gundry's opinion of MCT oil (C8)? I know he wants APOE4's to avoid pure coconut oil, but I think at his 2016 lecture at the Ancestral Health conference, MCT OIL received his nod of approval? Wish I had written this post to you sooner, so you could specifically ask him in your consultation today.

In his talk, he dissed the ketone salts sold by different companies to help increase ketone levels. Veech says these racemic salts are causing more damage than good. Of course, I have been using them intermittently between fasting! Who knew? I base my decisions on one expert (Dominic D'Agastino) and then discover from another expert that it is harmful rather than helpful. I did some further digging, and it seems Veech has a patent on a new product for ketone esters, which he praises their use to raise ketones. The post did not tell you the name of the product or when it would be released.

I am slowly but surely moving in the direction of a 90% Grundy plant based lectin-free diet (but digging in my heels because of so many restrictions--I enjoy eating meat and cheese). In the future, I hope our members can discuss A2 dairy products, and their ramifications on APOE4's. I have researched to a small degree the history of A2 cows and the politics thwarting the consumer's ability to purchase A2 dairy as well as thwarting the public's awareness of the health damaging A1 milk.
My understanding, from a Gundry perspective, is that the A1/A2 issue is an autoimmune one and is not an E4 issue, but for all. Gundry has told us that he's observed that cheese seems to be a bad actor for E4's (because of the fat). What he observes for animal fat and coconut oil is that for E4's, sdLDL increases with their consumption.
good lord. With Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (Type 3 Altz perhaps? I still get confused on this) it leads to gut inflammation, Dysbiosis and SIBO in many, many CIRS patients. A diet with these macros would kill my gut. I have to keep a moderate MIND type diet, low-ish in animal fat but not without. Some fats and animal fats are so much easier on the gut and do not feed overgrown microbes in the small intestine. Maybe some day as i think these fibers are beneficial when your gut is in good shapeI get my protein from oats, nuts, beans, brown rice, wheat and lentils.

I'll do this for a maximum of 8 weeks. If I feel awful without my usual ketosis, I will bail. But with so much gut microbiome fuel for the buyurate they produce, I may end up in ketosis....lets see.
