Take an in-depth exploration of the complex web of risk factors associated with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.  In our this webinar, we delve into the latest research on hypothyroidism, depression, immune dysfunction, complement activation, and IgE allergies and their potential contributions to dementia risk. 

The webinar examines the interplay between these risk factors and the role of APOE genetics in exacerbating inflammation and overall dementia risk. Through a thorough review of laboratory testing, we'll discuss how you can evaluate thyroid function, environmental allergy, and sensitivity to minimize these risk factors and prevent cognitive decline.

The Webinar Will Cover:

  • Review the difference between Alzheimer's and other dementias
  • Review environmental, genetic, and lifestyle factors that can affect risk.
  • Increase awareness of common health disorders that can affect risk.
  • Review available studies linking IgE, atopic disorders, and dementia risk.
  • Review the contribution of mast cells, histamine, and microglia activation to dementia risk.
  • Review laboratory tests, nutraceuticals, and lifestyle adjustments that may decrease risks.
