• Alzheimer’s Risks and Genetic Predisposition Summer Specials on Coolsculpting, Fillers and Micropeels

    Mused while planning what I’ll be serving besides fried chicken at an upcoming picnic. See “La Dolce Vita” below for more summer ideas. The weather is supposed to be grand this week, a picnic will be a perfect way of enjoying it.

    Alzheimer’s Genetic Risks

    Do you want to know if you have a significant risk of developing Alzheimer’s?

    Everyone has two copies of the apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene, one from each parent. There are three variants, one e4 is associated with increased risk of Alzheimer’s. About 20% of the population has one or two copies of the e4 variant. One copy increases your chances 3-4 fold. About 2% of the population has two copies which can increase the risk by as much as 14 times.

    What would you do if a test reveals the risk of a disease for which there is neither a clear prevention nor a treatment?

    (Did You Know? There are support groups on Facebook and other web sites for those who have the APOE gene.)

    Experts say that having the gene does not guarantee you will develop the disease. Many other factors increase or decrease the risk including 35 other genes known so far. The best advice currently is to focus on getting sleep, exercising, learning things, controlling stress and hypertension, as well as social interaction and a healthy diet.
