Wow ... unfortunately at $70 for the test, that also will have to wait.   I know that this info will be beneficial to me but I can only do what I can financially afford.  It's on my list!  

Thank you also, Victoria ... off to check out those links now!  


I'm curious...since you followed the BTD years ago and stopped, what foods did you start eating again that you weren't eating while following the BTD? Also, so glad to see you back to eating right

The biggest cause for my weight to start going back up immediately were wheat and gluten.  What has put me OVER what I should be were some meds I was on for the Lupus.  That's added the 20 pounds I want to lose.

I finally got to see my friend briefly the other day.
She said she was feeling better.  I hope someday to get her to read the books & get on this forum.

I don't know her schedule or energy level to know how much time she can spend here, but it would be great!
How are the rest of you with auto-immune diseases?

Can I bump up this topic?
How is rcmichels1 doing? I would love to know.

I thought that type B was the main one for auto-immmune disease & would guess that AB is next.
What does the Dr. say?

We know that all types can get all problems, but which ones are the main ones for this?

I did get to see the woman with lupus & she says she is doing better. She showed that her skin is improving. I think she said she was off the drugs(or at least taking fewer!).
That is such good news. Too bad I don't have time to talk more in depth. I mentioned dadamo.com. I hope she remembers it!
Maybe she will show up here soon!!!!!

That's encouraging!  Getting rid of the side effects of the drugs alone has got to make her feel better.


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 had an uncle and an aunt who died with lupus - my mother's siblings. It would have been so wonderful to have known back when I was young something that would have helped them. They both were such wonderful people and a great loss......

I was beginning to learn about the wonders of alternative medicine but hadn't realized the magical value of it yet. And I'm still learning, of course.

I was diagnosed with lupus and sjogren's late Sept. of 2012. Just discovered the blood type diet about a yr ago when I started craving bloody steak (I'm a born and raised vegetarian...and had never had steak in my life). Yeah, turns out I love steak, especially on the rare side.  

I'm too new to the lupus thing to know what triggers what exactly and I'm still fine tuning. I've cut out wheat all together and have been strict about that for 4 months (not counting finding it in foods by accident....that will train you to be more diligent fast). I've noticed a huge improvement in how my guts feel without wheat. I know stress and sunlight can trigger my lupus. Yes, I'm officially part vampire it seems. lol

My guess is that as you follow Dr. D.'s diet recommendations, the inflammation will eventually go away, although this may take a while depending on how much damage needs to be repaired.

I have a niece who has a serious problem with sunlight and has to go to extreme measures to avoid it. (Like wearing cotton gloves to cover her arms when she is driving - summer and winter!) In spite of that, she does not have lupus. They were certain that was what she had, but they were able to rule it out after extensive testing. She has been on one or another of Dr. D's diets for fourteen years and is really healthy.

Oh poor gal! What happens to your niece if she doesn't cover up from the sun?

it seems due to the testings and results and researches from here: http://www.klinghardt.org
lupus is also related to this thema and can be reversed with the right treatment!!!

The book, "The Paleo Answer" by L. Cordain good too for those with autoimmune disease, in meantime, don't eat white potatoes, grains, legumes, dairy foods, sugar, or seed-like grains ie buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, chia seeds.  Keep other nightshade veg low too.  Cordain explains well in book. Keep it simple, animal proteins, veg, fruit, herbs, spice, few nuts, oils. just brief reply for now.
