whit4health wrote:Hi, I'm new to this forum. I've known for about a year that I have E4/E4 as well as MTHFR C677T. I've been reading and doing as much as I can to prevent issues. Neither of my parents had Alzheimer's and no one in their past history has. However, there was a massive stroke in both grandfathers at around age 75 and my dad died of a heart attack at 72. My mother lived to 86 without Alzheimers. She was not a healthy eater either. I will soon be 54 and I've been a pretty healthy eater and have exercised moderately since I was 24. I've noticed during certain times, my mind does not do as well, especially with changes during the monthly cycle. I'm 90% vegan, but I definitely cheat on my diet. Blood work looks good. I could definitely lower my LDL a bit more, but HDL is excellent. Finding all this out in the last year had depressed me initially, but I now feel that knowing helps me work on prevention even more. It also helps my children who are still in their late teens and early 20's to start their protocols early. My main question here, is does anyone else know if they have a MTHFR mutation as well as the E4/E4 and do you follow a certain diet/protocol that is slightly different from what I'm reading here. Seeing that I need to change my diet even more makes it difficult, ie removing all grains, certain vegetables I enjoy and other items does not make it easy. Certainly, I know my kids will never do this at this stage in their lives. Thanks for any advice.
