Hi. I don't know if I am a secretory or non and I doubt any blood test sample would survive a trip half way round the world if I tried so my question is

"How many of B's can tolerate caffeine? " secretor or non?

I'm hoping to establish a pattern , thank you.

I hate coffee, but I love caffeine.  I drink green tea, put liquid caffeine in water, and eat chocolate.  Too much in me or anybody else can cause leeching of the minerals in your body, so I have to limit for that reason.

I don't know what the numbers are (how many Bs can "tolerate" caffeine).
Dr. D'Adamo says that a Genotype he calls "explorers", representing a small minority of Bs, take a very long time to process caffeine - if that's what you mean - so that it makes falling asleep very difficult.
I tend to have a cup of coffee every morning, FWTW.

Actually, blood samples are not generally used to determine secretor status.

But if you desire use a blood test, look for a lab locally that tests for Lewis bloodtype.  This is a standard test and will indicate your secretor status.

More common is a saliva sample.

It can be tested in two ways:

1) Present or absence of blood type antigen in saliva. Secretors secrete these antigens into the saliva.

2) Genetic marker for FUT2.  DNA holds up well over time. So shipping should not be a problem.

Tests can be gotten  through a variety of independent labs, that test for other things.

Or there are D'Adamo affiliates around the world that offer testing services and other D'Adamo products.

A tolerance for caffeine is not necessarily going to equal a tolerance for coffee.

I love caffeine and get it via green tea, which I thrive on.  

I was quite a coffee addict for many decades, yet I haven't drunk it in many years.  Even though I enjoyed the taste and aroma, it didn't like me.  Still, it wasn't the caffeine in it that bothered my system, but the many other things in coffee.

Coffee is neutral for Bs. My son drinks it on occasion and seems to have no problems with it.  It can help him feel more alert when he's sleep deprived and wants to stay awake (because it's a  time of day when most people are awake) but he could also drink it right before bed and have no problems falling asleep. When he was younger, he found that caffeinated beverages helped him fall asleep more easily.  I highly doubt he's an Explorer (though I haven't measured him for Genotype since he was about 8 or 9.)

My type O daughter drinks it sometimes too (she's 20 and in charge of her own nutrition) but she finds that it makes her feel irritable, and she does much better on tea. When she does drink coffee, it's usually to help keep herself awake when she has a lot of schoolwork to do.

(emph. mine)

What this means is: The Secretor Saliva Test yields the secretor's ABO blood type, too.

If you did not know your ABO bloodtype, and sent in nothing but a saliva sample for a Secretor test, you would be told BOTH your bloodtype and your secretor status, if you were a secretor.
If you were a nonnie, your result would simply show that your bloodtype could not be discerned via your saliva.

Though I'd known almost all my life, through more than one means, that I was B: My saliva sample shortly after LR4YT's publication came back "B" secretor. If I hadn't known "B", I'd have killed two birds with the one spit-bit.

Actually, I think they request your blood type before running the secretor test on the saliva. They only test the saliva for the blood type you've told them to test for.

You're perhaps right that my BT was requested, but my test definitely came back B Secretor, not simply "Secretor".

Welcome Jenny!  I also don't like the taste, but like the smell. I once walked into a Starbucks & felt a lift!
I am sensitive to caffeine, so can't even drink regular tea. I love rooibos which I found late in life. But better late than never!
I can have chocolate though.  If it is a large amount in the evening, it may affect sleep, but not like tea.

Currently, if you order the Saliva test in the US from D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition, you are tested for the FUT2 gene.  

http://www.4yourtype.com/secretor-status-collection-kit/

I have not actually order this test.

But this test is not dependent on blood type.

So there would be no need to request a blood type.

The test result for FUT2 gene would not indicate a person's blood type.
