I have known I am hypoglycemic for decades and have learned how to moderate the glycogen responses using protein, fat, fiber and such.    So I have to ask, if the blood sugar response to small or moderate amounts of sugar can be controlled then what other issues are there with sugar?   I am referring to white and brown sugar.

There are other biological involvements of sugars besides the amounts carried in your blood. Some of the processes include glycation and others that have the end result of affecting aging, free radicals and so on.

There is quite a bit of information that is easy to access in The Individualist if you want to research further. For example, the page on glycation is here:

yes, and also being an A2 and a nonnie answers your question on limiting most sugars, as all us nonnies here!

Glycemic index is 100 for these two...it spikes your blood sugar to quickly. It also depresses your immune system

Everyone knows that sugar is bad for your teeth and gums, and there is no where to hide from that if we go on using sugar. Even normal brushing does not deal with this adequately.

Sugar also feeds candida.

Hi Lola.    Sorry to be dense, I suppose it should be obvious but I'm not sure why being A2 and nonnie makes a difference.

Blood Type A's have the most subtypes.  A1 or A2 are the most significant.  Depending on which A one is, that will have an impact on some food choices and health issues.

I believe I have that right.

If not, here's the wiki entry on Type A subtypes.

Quoted Text
Practically, since A1 is transfusable into A2 and vice versa, they can for all practical purposes be considered equivalent, but you might see if you feel any benefit from increasing the amount of seafood in your diet, though I would still advise restricting foods which are listed as avoids for type A.

Quoted Text
There is however a distinct increase in the occurence of type A2 in certain forms of leukemia. There appear to be some differences with between the A1 and A2 subtypes with regard to succeptibility to certain fungal lectins.

in the book LRFYT page 196 under meats...A2 should increase by 1 serving weekly.

under fish page 197.....increase by 2 servings weekly..

under dairy page 201....decrease 2 servings....
grains page 206.....decrease 1 serving weekly

under oils  page 215....increase 1 serving weekly
that to me represents an important difference....
also try the general search button on home page for more info.

I should rephrase the question.
I know there are significant differences in A1 and A2 and secretors and non-secretors, I should have asked Why is it A2 nonnies should be more concerned about sugar?

Because nonsecretors are more susceptible to the bad effects of sugars, inclusive of a variety of factors as discussed previously.

I might add, for most non-secretors, sugar results in fatigue.  In this non-secretor it may take a couple of days to recover.  I can do fruit and agave and xylitol although not excessively.  As Lloyd mentions it is more than a sugar spike, it affects us systemically.  Take care.  CB

For some reason, I thought I read A2s have a more difficult time with grains, anyone else remember that?  CB
