I just received my SpectraCell micronutrient report but I'm having a hard time adjusting the results to what Dr. Bredesen recommends as optimal values in his program. For example, Dr.Bredesen recommends vitamin B6 to be between 60-100mcg/L, in the results i have 65.
Can someone help understand how one relates to the other, or point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance...
Hello Jorge, Welcome to the apoe4 forum, so glad you found us!
It sure can get confusing with what is optimal for each of us when looking into our lab values! I am still sorting through all of that myself! Your primary practitioner may have better insight into what your optimal
would be, and I am sure there are others on the forum that will chime in here.
I am not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I do see that Dr. Bredesen gives a little more detail on optimal B6 values in his book, The End of Alzheimer's.
On the bottom of page 121, he writes, " For vitamin B6, you don't want to be at the low end (30-50 nanomoles per liter) or
over the top, either (>110nmol/L).....You want to shoot for 60-100."
You might also like to take a look at the info on the Bredesen Protocol
page in the wiki section of this site.
While you are here, there are two links that you may want to check out. First, there is a section on getting the most out of the Apoe4.info website, you can find it here
and second, one of our physician members wrote a primer
, it is chock full of information and super interesting.
Again, welcome to the community, Jorge!
I look forward to learning with you.
