Just wondering if there's a correlation between blood type and hypothyroidism.

Hey Nelah...welcome the forum and the BTD way of life.  

I take it since there is only one vote for the blood type A that that is you.  If you go up to the member center you can click on the avatar setting and get yourself an nice A type shield.  That way you won't have to post each time and everyone can see at a glance what blood type you are.  You can also go to the personal settings and signature to add a little something of your own.

The Encyclopedia has a chart that shows the relative risk of hypothyroidism for the different blood types and secretor status.  Type A is listed as high risk and type O with the Hashimoto's thyroiditis autoimmune disease type of hypothyroidism.

Hi all,
I have a sister slightly hypothyroid, a brother hypothyroid on medication as my mother, all group A blood group. An aunt and a grand mother were clearly overweight probably for thyroid problems, because their quantity of food did not justify their weight. All As ! So I am not personally hypothyroid, but I believe really that As are easy to this problem, especially if lharmful lectins and gluten or gliadin sensitivity  trigger it. In medical literature there is a consensus that celiac children have to be regularly checked for thyroid problems.

I'm a little confused by the references to the diabetes resources.  Are hypothyroidism and diabetes linked?

I was diagnosed hypo.(Hashimoto)in 1993.In 1997 I was diagnosed hyper.(Graves) I had radioactive iodine treatment for the Graves. Now I am hypo again. I worry about what the effects of radioactive iodine are going to be! I was in my early 20's when I had it and not smart enough to get a second opinion on my treatment options.

My wife is type A and has Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.  So I voted in your poll on her behalf.  Now it's a tie b/t O & A.

Not sure yet what my diagnosis might be.  But as I'm being treated for adrenal fatigue, I'm starting to have panic attacks.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

They are both symptoms of adrenal issues. Poor adrenals being the cause of both thyroid and blood sugar issues.    You would want to focus on repairing the adrenals. That in turn should 'repair' the thyroid and blood sugar issues.

Me too, but I'm hoping when I get my adrenals repaired that I'll be able to get off it.

Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is good for adrenals.
I take it extra. For me, 250mg. works well when I eat properly & 500 when I don't.  I sometimes forget, but 25 years ago, it was very impoprtant to have it regularly.  I don't know why it isn't emphasized. I think it also helps with hyperactivity.
Cheers,

When someone votes in the poll, it shows up as a new reply, even if that person doesn't post a reply.

Hypothyroidism and heart disease.. must be linked as well. I can't tell you how many patients have both problems.

My low thyroid doesn't show up in blood tests but it does in other ways. My basal temperature on arising was 95.7 or so the last I checked 2 weeks ago.

I've taken Armour thyroid but seem to get little if any benefit from it. I bet BTD and my nutrient program with fish oil and p5p might do it some good. )
