I think the key ones are likely LDL, Triglicerides, h1AC / Glucose levels.
The University of Wisconsin researcher Dudley Lamming (postdoc with David Sabatini) has suggested at higher doses you would want to check TREGs to see how your immune system is functioning. I have no idea on the cost of this type of test, it seems more difficult to get than something like the sirolimus blood tests, but I may be missing information here.
** TREGs (T-cell Regulatory Test)** (Test details ), Labcorp TREGs test
Test TREGS on the same day you test Trough Sirolimus levels to see if there is significant disruption to your immune system.
Juvenescence is so expensive and I don’t really think it works much better than the salts. Though I do get a little buzz when I take it, that’s not really worth it. I checked my urine for BHB,(keto strips) and didn’t have any. WTF. Is it making something else? I don’t know what’s going on there.
We’re in the middle of harvest here so I don’t see the computer till I get home late. Usually.
I think my doc will prescribe for me if I ask after harvest, otherwise I may try the low dose of Empagliflosin. Thanks though!
When I printed out articles on rapamycin some years ago, my physician was persuaded by it and wrote me a prescription. While my doc may not have been representative, you could try printing out the most relevant studies.
You could draft a letter for your friend to his physician with a request to be included in clinical trials of senolytics for pulmonary fibrosis.
I thought I read somewhere, it’s better to take Rap in am because it could effect sleep. I sleep a little better after taking in am. Still not through the night. I suspect I’m at too low of dose for my “wants”.
Interesting how it affects different people in different ways.
I noticed I become very alert/focused after around 12 hours post taking Rapa. Having been taking it when I awoke in the morning I figured why waste the enhanced alertness/focus during the next sleeping time. So I switched to taking it just before I go to sleep and no effect on my night time sleeping.
Incidentally, did this just before getting on a transatlantic night flight, actually slept on an aircraft for the first time in my life with 3 hours of sleep, and full of energy during that following day with no jet-lag at all !!
A relative of mine was diagnosed with lung fibrosis, maybe bc of asbestos. She is still get ring tests done.
I’m now researching about potent senolytics and about what rapamycin can do for her.
I saw a post about this topic from last summer. So if you have any information, I’d be thankful.
The Mayo Clinic tested dasatinib with quercetin for pulmonary fibrosis. Would that have a positive effect on lung fibrosis? In my friends case, a doctor I knew in town was willing to consider treating him. The problem was and still is, my friend won’t consider anything out of mainstream medicine.
This poll was/is very helpful…thanks for doing it…!! It gives more more substance and credibility to the claim that when rapamycin is taken episodically (once weekly) there are only minor side effects compared to substantial positive health benefits.
However, I frequently tell people, rapamycin is not a quick fix or a “cure” for anything. When a person starts taking rapamycin, every cell in the body starts working better…and gradually, day-by-day, small improvements are made. Often there are no noticeable effects of slowing down the process of biological aging. The “noticeable” effect is that you remain healthy, energetic and strong…compared to many of your peers who are increasingly showing the effects of biological aging.
Hi - hard to tell exactly. We’ve had around 225 at this time who have responded to this poll here (but we don’t still publicize it), and there were around 330 that participated in the U. Washington Study - but most people don’t respond to surveys…
