B+ non-secretor, female

agreeance that nonnies would recognize heath issues / digestive issues being related to food and diet and so go looking for answers.

For years i wished food came in little capsules so that wouldn't have to worry about digesting it, per se.

I predict this thread will keep on  being bumped up for YEARS, as new members discover their secretor statuses.

Almost 60% non secretors after 22 voted. Interesting, indeed Seemes like Non-secretors may have more diet related issues in general. What do you think?


O+ : Secretor

Not 100% sure about this, but from the few Explorers that I know, regardless of Rh factor all seem to have diet related issues. Several posts by the Explorers on this forum seem to reflect this as well.

Quoted from ruthiegirl

For example, a type O might stumble upon low-carb dieting, cut out or down on wheat, potatoes, and corn by default, and see great health results. That individual would stop looking for a better diet, and won't be posting in this poll.


Seen a lot to fit this bill on an afib forum

A healthy secretor with no obvious reactions to their curent diet isn't likely to find BTD.


Millions upon millions around the world are, yes, likely to beg to differ.

Im quite happy with O- secretor and my Hunter/Swami. Lots of foods that I enjoy and can easily obtain. A great fit for me.

Looking at the poll results Female non-secretors way outnumber Female secreturs even though they make up only about 12-15% of the population.

Non-secretor issues could be what brings many of them to sites like this, looking for help and answers.  Non-secretors have their antennae up on extra-alert?

I think that would be it. Though it is a small sample it goes roughly 60% nonnies vs. 40% secretors as opposed to say 12% vs. 88% in the overall population. A very striking divergence.

Though I am a secretor I realize nonnies have a more difficult path and I wish them well.

I still think that the saliva secretor test is not very accurate to say the least. This poll would tend to also indicate that as well. Try and justify it how you want but everyone I know that I have turned on to the blood type diet and have taken the saliva test have come back as NON-secretors. Both family members and non family members. Too coincidental if you ask me. I think it should be looked into furthur and having read all of Dr. D's works I know that he wouldn't want it any other way.

I first had the serotype panel done and came out a LDN

then the secretor test thankfully confirmed my non secretor status

how long did your saliva have to travel Mono?

I waited till I was at a conference in the US to do all my testing.

i know in my circle, those who have sent away for their saliva secretor tests, only myself and my birth mother came back as nonnies. The rest (about 7 or 8 so far) have been secretors.

I think Lola may be on to something about the distance / time issue. I literally scheduled mine in based on when UPS was doing their pick-ups.

In one of  Dr. D's articles he talks about  A2 being from Northern European. Thats all I remember right now. Not sure I can find it again.

There are blood test you can do to find out for sure.

My saliva test was confirmed with a blood test, non-secretor.

Why not just go for the blood test if you are concerned about accuracy?

I was worried about the time aspect as well, but there was nothing I could do differently   Do you mean that the secretion in saliva might "wear off" if the sample takes too long in getting to the lab?

No-one here is even heard of Lewis typing, so that's out of the question.
I thought there was a lab in UK that would perform the saliva testing, I hadn't realized the sample would have to be sent all the way to the States.

I took my sample on 03/26, it left the country the next day, and arrived at NAP lab on 04/06.

Then again, Henriette sent hers (from Denmark) and turned out Sec

Hey Pixu,

Just FYI; if you email the guys at right4eu.com they can supply you with a blood test that can do your Lewis typing. (You should take the blood yourself and then send it in to a lab in the UK.) That same bloodtest can also confirm your blood-, rhesus- and MN-type if I'm correct.

Yes, I ordered lewis, A1/A2, duffy, MN test kit from Nature-cure Labs in the UK. I need to send it in an express bag to get it there fast so it is viable for testing.  It is a blood sample, just ten drops.
Ps hello Damon & JillP, great to see other nonnie warriors!

Hi Serenity,

I suppose that means you still have to 'take' your test?
I can tell from experience that getting blood out of your fingertip (after having punctured it with the enclosed needle-thing) is close to impossible for an A nonnie (warrior).. I spinned my arms around like crazy, kept my hands low and tried to push all my blood to my finger tips, but only got 5 drops out, even after multiple punctures. (I was close to replacing the enclosed needle with a kitchen knife in order to make a proper cut! In hindsight the culprit turned out to not have been the needle, but thick A nonnie blood..)

Anyway, in summary, I would advise all A nonnies aiming to take that test to completely avoid all avoids the days before doing the test, to focus on some natural blood thinning foods like garlic, and to not be afraid to make a proper hole with that needle.

Damon   I can just see you eyeing for that knife

I just sent NAP an email asking about the viability of my results, considering it was 11 days until they got my sample.

I just could not afford an extra test right now...
