I just finished reading the BTedD last night and I am a type A.  I was surpriz when the doc mentioned that type A's have gallblader and liver problems. I am 21 but had to have my glallbladder removed when I was 19 because of gallstones, which i know is highly unusual especially since i have no family history. Ever since then, I crave red meat (bad for A's) and have been more sensitive to certian foods, especially avacados.  In the book, he talks alot about stomach acid: I was wondering if anyone else has lost their gallblader and knows how that affects how much stomach acid we have and nutrient absorption?

found this thread dealing with the problem:
http://www.dadamo.com/forum/archived/config.pl?read=130086

following the guidelines strictly according to your blood type will be wise.
also look into strengthening your liver using the online protocols:

liver support and allergy support

http://www.dadamo.com/protocols/1.html

and this thread:

I would advice you to tweak your food intake by following the advice in the allergy book of the health series:

I'll look into gallbladder issues, but I just have to say this is another example of poor practice by the medical establishment, to take a 19 year olds gallbladder out because of gallstones instead of working to deal with the problem in other ways is ridiculus.  Unless of course there was some sort of serious obstruction that was atomic in nature, there would have been soooooooooo many better ways to deal with this instead of taking out an organ

Yes, it is really sad that the health professionals have failed the population. Greed has become their priority. Surgury is such a money maker. I am sure the doctors never even discussed the natural and inexpensive ways of dealing with gallstones.

Occassionaly if I eat dairy I feel a pain in my back that penatrates around my side which I assume is my gallbladder acting up. But it is only with the dairy- which I try to avoid at all possible. Otherwise I have no problems. Greasy foods will do the same thing. Eating right solves all these problems. It is just hard to do sometimes.

dairy is bound to form stones in those types for whom it is an avoid.

Welcome to the forum, jm320.

I am not sure which one of Dr. D'Adamo's books you finished reading, but the LR book has a section on liver/gallbladder diseases that may be of interest to you.

Dandelion greens, artichokes, and dandelion tea are great food items/beverages to include in your 'A' meals to assist with the liver.
