I am a member of the original family in which the extremely rare blood antigen, Mg, was found.  Back in the 1950's, one of my uncles needed a blood transfusion but his blood agglutinated although the donor was considered compatible. Researchers from the Blood Grouping Laboratory, Boston, the Dept. of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School & the Blood Bank of the New England Deaconess Hospital, Boston, did a study that was published in Vox Sanguinis, Vol. 3, No. 2 (1958) called, “Mg, a New Blood Group Antigen in the MNS System”.   The study is posted online, although the version posted online is not in English.

My father and all of his siblings were tested as well as all of my siblings and first cousins.  My father and three of his four siblings have the Mg antigen.  Six out of seven cousins and my three siblings were tested, two of my cousins (from different uncles) and my sister have the Mg antigen.  I was not born at the time the study was conducted, but my sister thinks I was tested after I was born and that I have the rare antigen.  My cardiologist is very interested in further research on family members who have this rare Mg antigen and its possible relationship to disease and will have me tested to confirm that I have it.

I began the BTD in mid-October due to a serious family history of heart disease. I had a physical and some of my test results were less than encouraging.  Then my 59 year old sister had a heart attack this December.  Obviously, I am taking this very seriously.  I found out about a week ago that I am a non-secretor as well.  I contacted my family members to see if anyone had a copy of the study because I was hoping it would identify secretor status and explain the family history of heart disease.  It did not, but when I saw that the Mg antigen was discovered because of agglutination from a donor who was considered compatible, I began to think about how this might impact other things.

Should I have the rare Mg antigen, I am wondering how this might impact my success on the BTD.  I assume that if the Mg antigen caused the my uncle's blood to agglutinate with a seemly compatible donor, then my blood could also agglutinate with seemingly compatible food.  Does anyone else have any experience with this?

1. I'm assuming you've been all over the internet for more on this.
2. Await the input of Dr. D'Adamo, too.

Welcome to the forum!

Dr D'Adamo has studied many rare blood type antigens, and his conculsion is that none of them affect dietary needs as much as ABO blood  group, with secretor status (sometimes determined via MM group) making a few changes. Rh status affects portion recomendations, but not food lists. There's a very good chance that the rare Mg antigen won't have any significant effect on your food choices.

But considering your whole family health history, you might want to get a SWAMI (personalized computer program that calculates the ideal diet for YOU) to maximise the benefit you get from the dietary changes. With your extra information about the rare blood group, I'd recomend locating a practitioner to do a SWAMI pro rather than using the at-home SWAMI Xpress version. There's more likely to be a space to check off rare blood groups in the pro version than the "at home, user-friendly" version. How far are you from CT?

you might be curious enough to find out if you are in fact homozygous MM or an association between heterozygous MN or homozygous NN

I am n fact an homozygous NN......and this can be determined by a complete serotyping panel......

won t hurt to find out more about your individuality

Yes, Lola!  I am waiting to hear from my cardioligist on testing.  My dad and his three siblings who tested positive are NMg.  All of my aunts were tested as well.  Two male cousins are MMg.  My sister is NMg.  My mother is MN, so if I test positive, I assume I can be MMg or MNg.

I just heard that one of my second cousins (my cousin's daughter) tested positive for the gene.  I don't know what she is.  Her mom will have to be tested as well, I assume.

I am going to advocate to have the next two generations tested if their parents are positive to understand the issues should anyone need an emergency blood tranfusion.

Hi, Patty, and welcome!

If you are in MA, I would certainly say take a trip down to CT to consult with Dr. D.  The more information you have, the better, and as a naturopath and a true pioneer in the field of nutrigenomics, I believe his input could prove priceless.

Other than that, I wholeheartedly agree with Lola that following the correct diet for your type will be profoundly helpful because, among other things, it is so anti-inflamatory.

I wish you the best, and again, welcome!

Thank you everyone for you kind support and excellent advice.  My first goal is to have my MNS blood group type identified.  If I have the rare antigen, then I have to decide my best course of action and a trip to CT will probably be a very good idea!  Should I not have the rare antigen, then my need for a trip to CT is probably not so critical since I am very good at following the diet.  I just need to do better on the EXERCISE part of the program . . . am I the only O with the exercise issue?
I do walk every day because I have three dogs who need to walk, but other than walking I do NOT like to exercise.  I love to dance and do other athletic things, but I do not like the idea of organized exercise!

I would love to hear some other ideas or suggestions as to how I can accomplish this part of the LIVE RIGHT program.  I am not overweight but I do not feel I am in the best cardiovascular shape I could be in.  I have lost seven pounds since being on the blood type diet and I do not thing that I could lose any more than 5 more pounds without being considered under weight.  My family members were not considered over weight and yet they still had heart attacks, etc.

simply follow the guidelines and try to fit in a walking routine, just for you, with no interruptions
you can always build up if needed
some of us like using a rebounder

Oh, goodness, NO! I struggle with exercise as well- I feel good afterwards, but I have the hardest struggle getting started. I'm usually OK in the middle of it, once I get past the first few minutes.

Being "exercise challenged" is a common Gatherer trait.

Hmm, a common Gatherer trait?  I have not figured out my Genotype yet.  I have the Genotyping Kit, but my hubby and I have not had a chance to go through the whole thing.  Here are the few measurements I do know:  my ring fingers are longer than my index fingers, particularly on one hand, jawline is a narrow, gonial angle (square jaw), my upper leg space is definitely Andric with a large opening and my thumb and middle finger overlap around my wrist, and my legs are much longer than my torso.  My body type is probably mixed, although I am not sure of this.  My arms and legs are very thin and long, although I am quite short (under 5'2").  My husband guesses that I am mesoectomorphic (although I used to be a lot more muscular than I am now ) and my waist to hip ratio is .78 (got to work on that!)

Any guesses as to what I might be?

Longer ring fingers, Andric leg openings, longer legs than torso, and "long and thin" body structure is the exact opposite of a Gatherer, though I don't know if that would make you more likely a Hunter or an Explorer.

Patti, University of Bridgeport also has a med shift Dr. D supervises that you might want to check out if going to Wilton doesn't work for you. Dr. Nash at the Wilton clinic is great, too.

Al Sears is a cardiologist that put together something called the PACE program. From my understanding-- heart attacks sometimes come from sudden intense strain on the heart (like snow shoveling)-- and that affects how you want to build the heart muscle in your excercise program. The premise being our bodies were primarily designed for sprints, not marathons.
http://www.amazon.com/Pace-12-.....295634152&sr=8-1

It makes sense to me.

Dr. Nash has me rebounding. I think she's got me doing it for lymph flow and heart health.

All that being said, I am not a doctor and I think you would do really well to visit someone who understands individuals like Dr. D does and/or your cardiologist before really dialing up your program.

I ended up having results from a DNA test and it was wonderful that Dr. D put those into his program and my SWAMI is truly tailored to some things I need some support in from the SNP's that showed up. I am so grateful that this journey is leading me not just to feeling better, but to prevention. The more info you have, the more tuned in the protocol.

Blessings on your journey.

Well, just closing my window and there is a review by a reader on that link mentioning Genotype Diet the best diet book. And 58 people finding the review helpful to boot!

Thank you.  Very good advice!  I have an appointment with my PCP on Monday and will ask for the additional blood type testing (MNS and Lewis).  If I do not have the Mg antigen, my road to health will be a lot me straight forward, since I am in pretty good health now and my C Reactive Protein test has come down since I have been on the BTD.  If I have the Mg antigen, that will dictate a more personalized approach and I can look at all of my options.

I keep you posted and thank you again for your continued support!

here is a short mention of Mg from the Individualist.  No mention of how it effects the diet, but transfusions do get briefly mentioned.

Tons of antigens effect blood transfusions. Blood typing and crossmatching has come a long way since the '50's.

I am interested in the two posts regarding rebounding.  Is this something you do inside?  I live in Walden Woods and have beautiful, wooded trails for walking, so when the weather is good, I take my dogs and we walk, first slowly to let them do their business, and then we power walk for 45 minutes to an hour up and down the hills.

However, this routine gets interrupted during the bad weather.  We have so much snow right now that my little dogs cannot manage the long power walk in the deep snow and bitter cold.  I need to find a good indoor alternative for my exercise program.

Rebounding sounds fun.  Can you give me more details on this?

Type "rebounding" into the upper right search box and a lot will come up on the left hand side.
It's basically a mini trampoline and is highly efficient excercise.

That looks like a good deal, especially since it includes the DVDs...  There are some better rebounders and there are some not as good as this from what I remember from my previous research.

I am striking out on how to test for the Mg antigen.  I contacted Quest Lab in my area (the lab that Dr. D uses) and they say they cannot test for MNS, never mind Mg.  I contacted the Eat Right for Your Type site in the UK.  They have an MN blood typing kit, but it does not test for the Mg.  I am also assuming that their SWAMI cannot factor in the Mg antigen, since they don't test for it.  I went to my PCP and she does not know where to send me to have it tested and said it could cost over $1,000 and my insurance will cover it, but I have not met my deductibe, so I will have to pay up to $700 should the testing cost that amount. I talked to my cardiologist and she is looking into it as well.

Does anyone have any ideas as to where else I can get this tested?  Also, I have been reluctant to buy the SWAMI until I figure this out, but since the SWAMI cannot factor in the Mg antigen, how accurate will it be for me, should I have the antigen?  Should I just forget about the Mg antigen and buy the SWAMI?

If you get a rebounder, do your research for safety, mat quality, etc and make sure you pay attention to the way you control your knees and ankles or it can lead to pronation.

Patty,
I would find out as much as possible and run your swami with the data you can get,
your Mg antigen testing is fascinating, but perhaps not so important for swami.

have you done your haplogroup dna genographic project mitochondrial yet?

make a list of what is important and slowly get those done first
don t forget you can tweak your swami like forever, it grows with you, so to speak....
so you can keep adding the new data you get, whenever you want

Lola, I have no idea what this is!  You are so far ahead of me and I appreciate your advice!  What is it and how does one get this done?

I have made a contact with the Red Cross who may be interested in typing my blood, so if I am going to ask for stuff, now is the time!  If they won't do it for free, I am working on how much it will cost and will have to weigh the benefits vs. the cost.

Lola, you are a wealth of information and knowledge and I appreciate your continued advice

here Patty, and if either your dad, or a brother were close, you could have them do their Y chromosome for you....

you as female can only do the Mitochondrial dna test

the results of both M and Y haplogroups you can enter into swami as well

In addition to all that has been said only the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms that are considered nutritionally significant are included in the SWAMI pro.

You would have to know if the Mg antigen translates into some SNP being effected.

Quoted from Patty H
I am interested in the two posts regarding rebounding.  Is this something you do inside?  I live in Walden Woods and have beautiful, wooded trails for walking, so when the weather is good, I take my dogs and we walk, first slowly to let them do their business, and then we power walk for 45 minutes to an hour up and down the hills.

However, this routine gets interrupted during the bad weather.  We have so much snow right now that my little dogs cannot manage the long power walk in the deep snow and bitter cold.  I need to find a good indoor alternative for my exercise program.

Rebounding sounds fun.  Can you give me more details on this?
Could you leave the dogs home to power walk in the snow?  Walking in the snow is way more intense -- you'd go slower and wouldn't go as long and as far as usual.  A good pair of boots and snow pants is essential, though.  (My golden loves the snow, BTW.)



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.

I think you are right!  I am also looking at snowshoes.  I live in the most incredible woodland area.  Most people would love to have the trails that available just outside my door!  Thank you for the encouragement.  My hubby just had a total knee replacement, so my schedule has been totally upended by this.

I am sorry, but I have no idea what this means.  Are we talking MM, NN, etc?  Can you possibly explain this in laymens terms?

I will hopefully find out within the next two days if I have the Mg antigen, my MNS phenotype in general and my Lewis phenotype.

Thank you for your help!

Just was looking through an old conference manual.. and Dr. D has a list of SNPs. To my understanding it looks like having this low frequency antigen.. might not be enough to make a difference in your diet, you might have to have a SNP for it to make a difference. So getting tested for this antigen ( I spoke to the Blood Bank at work and they called it low frequency antigen and yes they test for it when matching blood) might not be the key to knowing that much more for you. But if you have a SNP then that would make a difference. Hope that is clearer for you.

2009 Personalized  Medicine in Form and Function is the manual I was looking at so far ahead of its time.
If anyone has any other thoughts they are welcome to chime in.


  Your body measurements hold clues to your heart disease risk, that is why we measure you. We are measuring your health/disease potential.

Try a pair of trappers.  I found that I could practically jog on snow with this kind of shoe.

I'm sorry Andrea.  I read the link but did not understand much of it.  Would it be possible for you to explain this in laymens terms?  If I wanted to get tested for this how do I go about it?

Can you tell me which measurements indicate risk of heart disease?  I am thinking maybe the waist to hip ratio?  Is that correct?  Are there others?

Any more detail you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Patty if you look up any of the things that are done in a SWAMi intake  they all correlate to your health risks..

Here is a search I did on leg lengths and heart disease. I know that these will be hard to read, but only read the conclusions.. or read the conclusions first then read the study so you know where they are headed.

http://scholar.google.com/scho.....amp;hl=en&tab=ws

A certain amount of plasticity ( we are not static beings) exists after we are born. All this is part of what Dr. D has done with the SWAMI software. We don't just measure the legs to know how tall you are, but to know about your future health risks. Finger ratios will give us information as well on where we are headed and where we have come from(what happened in the womb).

So your low frequency antigen needs to translate into something meaningful for your diet, A SNP or a measurement  that fits into the software values. Dr. D has really thought of everything with room for it to take information that will be in the future, he is a genius and on top of this understands human nature .

  Reading about these things will help you to get more information. This is something you will have to do  on your own, all the information is free you just have to start to look.

Why not think about coming to the conference so you can learn from Dr. D'Adamo?

listen to Dr D give an overview of GTD.....things will fall into place....

check out all his blogs, and use the search feature.....endless articles and details

have you read the GTD book yet?

also the monographs up in the GTD website?

use the pull-down menus for each GT......there s more of every GT there which didn t make it into the book for lack of space!!

I just received my blood typing test back from the American Red Cross and I do have the Mg antigen.  In the summary of the study, the antigen is stated as abundant and potent.

I am back to my original question of how this might interact with food lectins.  

I have a SWAMI, but the Mg antigen is not factored in.  I am NMg.

Is it possible to get the Good Doctor to weigh in?  If so, should I figure out how to upload the study so that he has the information?  Can anyone tell me how to upload the study?

What format is the study in?  Is it PDF form on disk?  

Is it printed on paper?

If it is in PDF file disk form, you could upload it for free to something like Scrib (Scrib is just one of many on the net) and link to it. I have loaded documents this way so that people can read them.

If it is in paper form, you could either scan it yourself into a PDF format and then upload it or hire a company to convert the document to a PDF file on disk for you and then upload it to a free hosting site on the net.


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Thanks for the tip on uploading the study.  Let's see if this works.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/48189871

After reading this, any input would be greatly appreciated.  I am waiting to hear back from the American Red Cross on the implications this may have for blood transfusions.  The first person who read it was not confident they could give accurate medical advice.

Thanks for helping!

Patty

the anti lectin, anti inflammatory issue will be taken care of if you follow your swami recommendations, after all, you are still an O nonnie and a Hunter......and that doesn't change....you have a lot to gain!!!
let s hear about your positive results

if swami isn t working for you and you wish a more personalized attention
For appointments at D'Adamo clinic:

http://www.dadamo.com/clinic/contact.htm

For an appointment at University of Bridgeport:

http://www.drpeterjdadamo.com/UB_shift/contact.shtml

but I do not believe you ll need to do that

yours being NM is like
mine being NN homozygous beginning also with the N as yours

and your second one being in fact the M, like in an MM homozygous
