I don't know their secretor status, but sometimes that doesn't matter.  I believe I know both of their RH factors and blood type of course.  

So, can I measure them and be correct?  They are 7-1/2 and 5.

For boys the age appears to be 15.

For girls the accepted age seems to vary.  Some say 12, some say 13, some say 15.

The important thing is the child is fully grown. 7-1/2 and 5 are clearly still growing and the proportions measured can change.

For children of this age the recommendation is to follow the blood type diet.

But think how much better your kids will be eating (than most other kids) with "just" their BTD foods.  Remember also, not everyone needs GTD...my husband does not. I do. Maybe they won't either when they get older.

And you may be able to guess from their personalities and activity types what they are anyway especially as you know their blood type already.

ABNW: Maybe if your kids are on the BTD, they may be less likely to need the GTD when they are older.
Either way, they will be so much ahead of the average person.
Going from BTD to GTD is so much easier than from SAD to GTD!!
Glad you are doing better!
Isn't this diet wonderful!?

Now there's an interesting thought.  However, with the way my children are so sensitive to foods, I feel like the GTD may do them better.  Like if my 3 y.o. A is really a Warrior like me, I shouldn't be giving him millet, but right now millet is one of the few grains he can tolerate.  And if my 5 y.o. AB is really a Nomad like her Daddy, she shouldn't even be attempting soy and peanuts (both of which she has a lot trouble with).

Yeah, you got any tips for asthma?  My son has been struggling the last couple days.  I give him this supplement called D-Hist.  Has stinging nettles in it and I had to give him his inhaler a couple of times and I don't like doing it.  Usually it goes away after a day but it seems to be up and down and hanging around right now.  It's frustrating and I can tell he's frustrated with it.  He gets more whiny and of course tired.  He was fine most of the day yesterday, then it flared up at night.  I think I need to keep the windows closed.  Rrrrrrrrr.....

I believe typing our kids to their genotype is very important.
There must be other genetic markers to offer or ways to interpet the currently known head,jaw,finger,Leg length ect...
I've been dabbling in a proportionate mindset, ratioing down the measurment values as close as I can to deduce their Genotype.
(as in figuring out a miniture).

I feel it's a better approach then just following BTD alone when the theory of genotype is to express the healthier side of our genetic inventory.
I want my kids to have all the opportunity to live to their highest,and healthiest potential.

Reason being kids are not immune to dis-ease until they reach age 15 or when they have the final growth spurt.
Especially if there are genetic disease's present in the currant family past, the odds are more so.  I feel very strongly To get kids on the genotype as soon as we can.
I hope Dr. D finds a way to Genotype Kids.

in the meantime, applying BTD principles is key!
