Facebook Live: Special Considerations for ApoE4 Carriers – Parts 1 & 2
Apollo Health’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Dale Bredesen; Chief Health Liaison, Julie Gregory; and Principal Research Scientist, Dr. Ram Rao, discuss the ramifications of ApoE4 and the special considerations carriers need to take to prevent neurodegeneration. Drs. Bredesen and Rao took a deep dive into the ApoE4 protein and how it acts as a “master control” affecting 1,700 genes, while Julie Gregory shared her insights into how this science translates into clinical practice. Topics covered include: why ApoE4 carriers have a greater need for ketosis, the importance of avoiding insulin resistance, protecting your head from injury, and more.
