I was just curious.......is there a way to get a good gauge of your secretor status, without taking the official test?  I have heard of getting average pulse rate (before rising out of bed) over a week, to get the norm.  Then eat a food you suspect you have a sensitivity to, and if your pulse goes up within a certain range like 20 minutes after you eat....chances are high you are sensitive.  

Anyone else done this?  Any other ideas?  

Sorry, times are tight.  

Thanks,
Carolinagirl

no.....
the test can be done by saliva or blood.....

that you mention is more allergy testing, has little to do with the Lewis test.

They sayyou really need the test, but if the secretor diet isn't working, it can't hurt to try the 'nonnie' diet for a while. I did that &  now am doing the gatherer GTD.
I think I am a nonnie because of certain things, but there is still a lingering doubt.
I ordered the test, but sometinmes have a coughing problem in the AM or I forget or I am not sure where to drop it off for delivery.

I saved pennies till I had the money for the test.  We never tested the rest of the family though.  I was just desperate to know one way or the other.  When I first put my AB daughter on the diet, I did secretor.  Several months later I switched her to the nonnie diet, just to try it, and her red allergic-looking eye circles went away.  (Unfortunately they're back, and have been since Thanksgiving, but I'm not sure what's caused it.)  She did a lot better on the nonnie diet.  So you have nothing to lose by giving it a shot and seeing if it's better, worse, or no different.

Instead of ordering the test, can we also figure out the secretor/non-secretor status by going to a doctor? Has anyone done that? Or do you have to order the saliva test kit?

It would be more expensive having a doctor do the test for you and send it to a lab.

Hey I thought I was a secreter with reading the book and the kind of profile I matched...guess what ...It is worth  getting the test cause I turned out to be a nonnie!

I have another question, according to what I've read about non-secretors, they are more prone to alcoholisms and are more susceptable to diseases than secretors. I have no taste for alcohol what so ever, let alone enjoying it, and I rarely get sick. Does this mean that I'm more likely a secretor?

Joey:

You are more likely a secretor, because 80% of the population are secretors.

I scarcely drink at all and have never been "drunk" from alcohol. Until I had food poisoning several years ago, I had scarcely been sick since childhood.

Yet my tests showed I was a nonsecretor.

One really does need to test to determine secretor status.

But you said it yourself that you have never been drunk or succumbed to alcoholism and rarely ever gotten sick. But suprisingly, you're tested as a "nonnie". Wouldn't the same apply to me as well? Maybe I might be a "nonnie" as well.  I hope not, but knowing my luck I might be one.

You have to call them first to get confirmation, is that correct? I live in New York as well. What should I do?

Not quite sure where to post this information, but it is essentially for Australians only who have reservations about doing the saliva test which some people find takes quite a few weeks. The alternative of the Lewis test is available at Symbion Laverty path collection centres, the blood sample is couriered to a centre such as that at North Ryde and the result in my experience is available within a few days. Unfortunately it is necessary to have a Dr or Naturopath referal for this test. The price is as yet unknown, but may be in the $30--70 range. I will inform you when we get the bill.
