I am not sure as to where to put this since there is no genotype book out yet.  Someone move me if they have to.

Okay Dr. D...  Now that you have had your genotype testing done...how can the rest of us get ours done?   Does it come in a kit like the secretor test of the blood typing test? Or do we have to wait for it to come out with the book? $150.00 US        Canadian...better start saving.

I am not sure what genotypes Dr. D'Adamo considers in his book.

But if your blood type is O, then your genotype for the blood type trait is OO.

O is a recessive trait, it is only expressed when both genes are O.

If your blood Genotype was

  • AO you would have type A blood
  • BO you would have type B blood

debra,

Here's a link within the link that Dr. D posted on his blog where you can test yourself

Your Genetic Journey

Hope this helps.

here you go Deb or anyone else for that matter


the test sounds more like a  test as to where your genes originated from...good if you've been in North America for a long time and have lost  touch with your roots

Are you saying if a person has "O" blood type that both parents have to have "O" blood type also?

I don't think so.  C-Sharp is just mentioning the O is recessive.

A parent of an O child could be O, AO or BO.  The O child has to get an O from each parent.

Not really. An AO or BO could have parents that are also AO or BO. In order to get an O (i.e. OO) you only need an O available from each parent.

This is how O survives even though it is a recessive gene. We started out with all O, and even though A and B are dominant O can maintain itself by force of numbers.

It is hard to comprehend that a DNA test can tell you where your ancesters came from and give you a history of your previous relatives. You have to wonder how accurrent this test really is. My family has a Bible(with family tree inside) with our relatives that goes back as far as the 1800's. So it is possible to check the genotype test with this past history gather in the Bible family tree. But say you are adopted and have never met either parent -how would you check the results of the genotype test to determine if it is true or not. Would you just assume it is true.

From my understanding, what they look for, are genetic markers specific allelles/loci that they have already identified as belonging to specific groups/types through the ages.  This comes from looking at the DNA in ancient and recent grave sites.

In one way of looking at it, it just tells you where 1 or 2 of your ancestors came from. Although one ancestor and their set of genes can be pretty important (just look at the one gene for blood type and its linked genes).

Quoted Text
Testing family roots through the Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA has serious limitations, too: it tells you only about your direct paternal or maternal lineage, not the ancestor footprints hidden in the rest of your genome. Go back 10 generations, and that's 1,024 ancestors, says Stanford bioethicist Hank Greely. "Your Y might be from Japan, your mitochondrial DNA from Mexico and all other 1,022 ancestors from Sweden.

You do not need Haplogroup testing to get the Genotype System to work.

What is cool and flexible about the GTD is that each level of genetic testing is treated as an additional modifier of your existing profile. You can add haplogroup results as a "filter" if you so desire-- in addition to other advanced tests such as "Nutrigenomic SNPs" (such as APOE4),  "Advanced Classic Genes" such as (such as A1-A2, MN and Lewis) and "Genetic Screening Tests" (such as BRCA1 and BRCA2).

However, as long as you provide the basic information,  the system works fine with very simple, inexpensive and easy to perform findings. These additional tests and screens just continue to refine the picture.

As time goes on and new technology evolves you'll be able to check with the website to see if a filter has been developed for that new test.

To use a real world example ME..............i'll chime in.  Dr. D genotyped me, and it just further detailed a diet for me.  Some values like veggie glycerine for example went to avoid somethings that were neutral or avoid changed, plus my 'reccomended amounts' changed for lots of different things.........for example I can eat alot more eggs than a normal sec.  Also, just like the health book series books that they give 'super beneficials' I have my own super beneficials, such as rutabegas, turnips, pears, peaches, snapper, cod........etc.

It has really helped make the diet more me, and it really feels this way, I look forward to each time I can go to the next level.  What is interesting is alot of the genotype results and changes were things that I had already been feeling

I'm interested in hearing more about this process and how much it cost.

Thanks for chiming in!
