Factors Most Commonly Responsible For A Patient's Cognitive Improvement: Dr. Bredesen's Interviews Dr. Wes Youngberg

  • Discussion as to the factors most commonly responsible for a patient's cognitive improvement.
  • Insulin resistance is the most common and often the primary underlying trigger of dementia.
  • The most sensitive and effective way to measure insulin resistance in patients is with a Glucose Tolerance Test that includes
    insulin measures at fasting, 1-hour and 2-hours at the same times as the glucose measurements.
  • Extending the Glucose Tolerance Test with a 3-hour and 4-hour Glucose helps establish if the patient has reactive hypoglycemia which is a major risk factor for hypocampal neuron death and progression of dementia.
  • A more comprehensive and inexpensive assessment of a patients genetic mutations is possible using the “raw data file” from a
    23andme.com saliva test and the MTHFRsupport.com report. This goes way beyond EPOe4 and MTHFR mutations.
  • Understanding where the genetic mutations are gives us specific understanding on how to improve the downstream biochemical impairments related to each mutation.
  • It's important to understand that sensitivity to various toxins and exposure to chronic low grade infections lead to chronic
    inflammation and therefore greater insulin resistance.
  • Testing for mycotoxins, glyphosate, industrial toxin load and heavy metals is a critical step in helping patients restore cognitive

Dr. Richard Pither

Identifying Patients At Highest Risk of Cognitive Decline Due To Alzheimer’s Disease, From a Simple Saliva Sample...and The Actions To Delay Onset of Symptoms

  • Cytox launched their test, “The Alzheimer's Risk Test – powered by genoSCORE” into North America late 2021, led by their testing laboratory partners, Sampled.
  • The Alzheimer's Risk Test is a Polygenic Risk Scoring (PRS) test that provides a comprehensive assessment of genetic risk linked to late-onset Alzheimer's disease and associated cognitive decline. 
  • Alzheimer's disease is a highly complex disease with risk factors based in genetics, lifestyle, age, and environment but up to 50% of the risk factors are modifiable and so can be addressed to reduce overall risk.
  • The Alzheimer's Risk Test is offered by approved clinical practices and requires only a simple saliva sample and uses a Polygenic Risk algorithm to predict the risk of individuals developing Alzheimer's disease and so optimise clinical management of those at highest risk.
