we use agave...gave up sugar in our early 20's prior to reading Dr.D's diets. Our son, now 21 (hunter  nonni O - ) was apparently born with a mal functioning pancreas ie diabetic.He totally controls his condition with his diet and is very strong and healthy with no diabetic problems! He never had any sweets or sweeteners except for trying organic Stevia once and organic fruit fructose twice which gave him horrible shakes, depression,total high then total slump, sweats etc, Also tried xyitol which changed his personality within minutes, made him shaky and his heart race! Then a few years ago we discovered Agave syrup! He can take this in moderation and only uses it sparingly in festive cakes, the odd brownies etc but not on a daily basis.There was a time he was using it every day and he was dizzy, tired,sweats, poor concentration, poor immunity to flu type disease, poor sleeping, highs then lows, huge rings under his eyes etc, He cut it back and all the symptoms of diabetes have gone and he is fine. He has measured his blood sugar with and without Agave and there is no difference! If indicated for your type I think organic 100% Agave is ok in moderation,and  not every day.


THIS is the most remarkable post I ever saw over the near 20 years of BTD posts.
What a remarkable young man, and what a great success story of a mom who cared and stuck to the teachings!
This is the kind of lifetime achievement (story) Dr. Peter D'Adamo can place on his fathers halo.. and the learning and teaching that came from there...  
What a remarkable success over the time of one young persons LIFE!.  What a 'sample of prof' in place of a double/blind study.  I would follow this young man's progress for the rest of his lifetime.
What a human study he could be the principal subject of.  WOW!
Take this + test that = outcome n~1.




Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Welcome Jo:

There are several products that use the term "Raw Sugar"

Depending on the product I would use the rating for sugar or sucanat.

Blood type rating for foods are given in type base.

Rating for most sugar variations:

Rating for Sucanat (type of "raw sugar" sold in many health food stores):

Just to clarify, agave is not 100% fructose, closer to 60%.  It has more fructose than glucose, so some with fructose malabsorption won't do well with it.  Those same people won't do well with apples, pears, or mango, for the same reason (molasses and most types of honey also have more fructose than glucose).  There are different degrees of fructose intolerance and malabsorption and different causes, but most people don't have to worry about  that.  If you get bloated after having those foods, a gastroenterologist can do a breath test for it.

I have a question.  I'm just starting thus diet and I have a fructose intolerance and am blood type A.  In my list of foods that are beneficial and neutral I am told I cannot eat.  Does anyone have any experience with this?

Because of my past medical history there are certain foods that could possibly trigger a coma.  

I do not eat these food regardless of how highly they are rated.

The blood type diet does not consider my medical history. I know what it is and see know reason to risk hospitalization ... just because the blood type diet says a food is okay.

If you know that you should not eat foods high in fructose, don't eat the foods that are high in fructose.

Some people overcome certain conditions after being on the diet for some time and can eat foods that they previously could not.

I see no reason to start with foods that you know create problems for you. Start with foods that are problem free.

Then after you have healed for some time and depending on the severity of previous food reactions and your willingness to risk those consequences you may want to test whether you could handle a food.

Well said CS Also there are different ratings for different brands of agave syrup.. Wish I could remember where I saw it but just today I read about a lady who came across an older bottle of agave syrup she had & noticed the older one had a higher fibre content... So the manufacturing processing also may be different now, as the demand has increased?!
