I'm a little confused. Apparently I'm a "teacher". I'm 5 feet tall and pretty much fit the profile. But, I have recently diagnosed heart problems after a bout with a virus. Heart disease runs in my mother's family. No sign of cancer in family. And I took meds for ulcers several years ago. Doc. said too much acid. That worked. Contrary to A+ blood type? I'm allergic to gluten, dairy, eggs, sunflower seeds, yellow food dye (skin tests, racing pulse, and experiences), and apparently all grains and maybe soy. I took an IgG4 residual blood test last summer which said I'm allergic to some of the foods on the type A "avoid" list, but also other foods that are on the safe lists, like pineapple, mushrooms, asparagus, squash, blueberries, and red grapes. What gives?  There's not much I can eat apparenly. I am highly allergic to chemical smells, many inhalents also. Is this typical of some A+  blood types? Is the IgG4 test reliable?

You need to pick one diet and stick with it. Either follow the BTD (blood type diet) and follow the food list for A's, or follow GTD (genotype diet) and follow the Teacher food list, or invest in SWAMI and get a list that's personalized just for you. That's the most individualized option but also the most expensive.

Whatever you decide to  follow, it's wise to avoid any food that you have a known allergy to, at least at first. Over time, as your gut heals, you may outgrow some of the allergies. Are you allergic to all dairy or just to cow's milk dairy? You may benefit from goat and/or sheep milk yogurt and/or cheeses from the Teacher list.

Dr. D'Adamo wrote a book called--- Allergies fight them with the blood type diet might be a good idea to read a bit more.

When I was "allergic to everything", it was an indication that I was really toxic and my gut wasn't working well (or at all).  I know that you need to stop eating avoids and work to heal the gut.  This will help with the allergy symptoms, but it is hard to tell how much relief you will see or how long it will take, but the difference should be noticeable soon.

DL,
Maybe you are an explorer instead of a teacher or perhaps a nice mix of both...I think I am. The diets per my swami..I ran 2 ways..are very much alike.

I agree with Ruthie that if you know you are allergic don't eat it for now.
I took the IgG test and came up allergic to what I now know as avoids for me. Mainly cow dairy and wheat gluten. Sheep cheese is fine for me...no reaction.

Good luck on your journey. Listen to your body and think about what so many on this forum have to say...lots of experience and wisdom here!

Dear DL:  I advise just start with the Blood Type Diet for A and find out whether you are positive, negative, and what your secretor status is. That's all you need to start, unless you want to Genotype really badly just for the info...not the practise of it yet.
The reason I say this is I had a host of problems that mimiced allergies AND: if you start genotype first without getting rid of all your avoids on BTD....you wont have the proper knowledge to move forward and progress.
The last thing strangely enough that I had to eliminate on BTD was BEEF. Even when I eliminated every single other thing....beef gave me the binging and vomiting addiction of bulimia just as if i was eating wheat and sugar all over again!
Pay attention to BTD and check for your gradual gains in health every forty days or so.
You will be glad that you did!

DL,
When I did food testing about 8 years ago, like you I came up "sensitive" not allergic to a bunch of stuff, including gluten/dairy/eggs/yeast and some fruits, veggies etc.  What I learned over time was that my gut was in bad shape and had affected other parts of my body.
For me it was important to work on the gluten/yeast issue and build the immune, and eat healthy for my liver.  I'm still working on it but I've improved a lot.  
Follow the allergy guidelines for taking a break and reintroducing foods.
Try one of the Blood Type diets and just avoid those foods you currently have an issue with.
Good luck.
Lin
