Dr D  says O's should not take aspirin. I had bypass surgery surgeon says I have to take this as I will compromise the graft! I do not understand the clotting problems in O type ...but I am a bleeder

Quoted from 39345

Dr. D's advice is for O's in general.

O's who have had recent bypass surgery were not considered in his advice. Your surgeon knows a few things about you that are more important right now for aspirin use than your blood type, i.e. your surgery.

If you were meeting with Dr D directly, you could have him talk to your cardiologist and discuss medications and supplements,and together they could work out something that reflects your individuality.

Lacking that, you should work with the doctor who's actually examined you. You can't rely on advice from a book when it goes against the advice of a doctor who's actively treating you. It's fine to follow advice from a book when it has nothing to do with what the "treating doctor" tells you- such as changing your diet.

do follow the advice in the book concerning avoid status of certain foods, although revising your secretor status would help target this advice

this non inflammatory guideline approach has never hurt anyone, not like we are telling you to take medication.......none of the sort.....or to avoid your doctor's advice......no way!!!

you have come to the right place, non the less and I wish you a prompt recovery

Thank you ...the advise is pretty much what I am doing I have been doing BTD for over 30 yrs started with James D'adamo's book & have used Live for your type in recent years ...I am in UK & I am a Physical/ health practitioner...I do have other genetic faults ... EDS.& Haemochromatosis & doing very well considering. I do recommend BTD /gluten free for most of my clients. I am on the ...best statin ...& take half ...& half  buffered aspirin so sort of feel I am somewhere in the middle of Dr D & my surgeon ....It is good to get other opinions

Was there not a mention that taking Vit E would be having the same effect?   Goes way back in my memory bank..

Or was it that Vit E had some kind of bleeding effect and so should be avoided in O's? even though it was advised by some doctors for prevention ....


So sorry I just do not remember, but maybe taking Vit E might be as effective as Aspirin.. but Doctors might be more 'secure' in prescribing Aspirin.. yet 10 thousands die every year from aspirin use?????  

I wish I had that difference clear in my head...

I think I would trust some of Dr D's supps more, and adhere to BTD/Swami...  but then it comes to knowing more because of being on BTD, and knowing way more than those still eating 'average foods'.  

I would fear the food /diet advise I would get from BTD ignorant doctors...  It scares me to think what I would be fed in a hospital or nursing home.... yeaks..

I would possibly / maybe be taking responsibility for arguing strongly with my doctor... or like advised above have a email consult between the doctors and Dr D on the subject.  I wonder if the 'textbook' has a page on this subject?

Then again once in a (long in-between) while when I think I have some heart issue, or some inkling that something could be going on, then I have taken on aspirin as prevention and think it worked just fine.    




Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I did speak to Tom Greenfield ...I did not feel inclined to pay £300 for a consultation...when my info needs are really understanding the blood clotting issues in O type
also issues with the supplements... I was taking Exacta...because it has 7 mg of iron I was loading this too so ...very dangerious  There is not much in info generally re iron loading...it is quite common especially in Celtic origin....thank you
