I am type O (90% sure), but I do not know if I am a secretor or not. I know that secretor is the vast majority of the population but 20% are non-secretor.

I am reading LR4YT, and on pg. 46 it mentions that if you are a secretor you will have a lot of mucus development if you're cells are attacked by harmful lectins. I have hey fever, and most of my issues with grain and dairy come from sinus blockage and all that fun stuff. So can I assume that I am a secretor?

don t you know your parents blood type either?

you can t assume you are any type until you get results.

there was a guy before, thought he was an O non secretor, turned out he was an A, but found it out years later, cause he simply assumed he was an O!!!

Secretor status cannot be assumed from anecdotal evidence.

Since secretors make the large majority, it is likely that you would be one based on chance.

O nonsecretor here, with major mucus problems from dairy and spring/summer/fall hayfever.  But the hayfever is much less a problem if I adhere to the plan.  I can live on 1/2 of a Benedryl on the bad days instead of 2 or 3  

I correctly guessed that I was a nonnie, but it was because of a mouthful of cavities, insulin resistance, being very sensitive to sugar (getting palpitations and such), and how quickly I develop yeast infections when taking antibiotics, though I never have them any other time.  While waiting for my secretor test I decided to follow nonsecretor plan to see what would happen and I felt better right away, and then the test confirmed it.

I found out tomorrow don't worry, at least my blood type not my secretor status. I'm almost positive I'm secretor because I don't have any of those issues. Also my parents do not know their blood types either, yet I am forcing them to find out after learning about BTD.

Also what about the MN status? Dr. D, only talks a little but about it in LR4YT, and do blood banks like the red cross usually perform that test?

Blood banks will do the Lewis typing test, usually for a fee. I think Peppy T mentioned that in her post on another thread.

O+ secretor with MAJOR sensitivities here I had severe hayfever and pollen/mold/dust allergies as a kid, to the point where I'd have to stay inside for weeks during the summer. Mowing the lawn made my throat close up and my hands swell like balloons. Just going outside after the grass (or hay) was cut caused terrible problems. My mom put me in a desensitization program at St. Joe's in Ann Arbor--six shots a week. It worked, but I'd rather just eat right for my type than endure six skin pops a week! My upper arms were tough as leather at the end of a year!

After five years on the BTD, I have two or three weeks in the spring where I feel a little tired or lethargic and my eyes sometimes itch when the pollen count is into the stratosphere. Pretty rare now though. I start taking double amounts of nettle leaf in mid-February and by the time spring hits I'm doing fine.

Anyway--secretor status doesn't necessarily dictate sensitivity. I was convinced I was a nonnie based on my medical history, but found out differently. Individuality is truly amazing.

I love the supplements Nettle leaf + Quercetin + Bromelain.  Throw in a good amount of food based vitamin C and you've got a great anti-allergy cocktail.

Ditto what Victoria wrote.  Plus, collinsonia and a neti pot are indispensable for those of us with sinus problems.


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.
