Mayflower...even though you still came back with secretor, maybe you're 'borderline'...as you're craving those nonnie foods?
I'm officially secretor but feel that I'm more nonnie than secretor because of the foods that suit me etc.
Just my opinion of course.

I hear ya Janet, I've always been kind of sickly for a secretor growing up. My mother always had me at the doctors for colds throat infections...and I had my tonsils removed at 6 years old.  
I was disappointed that the results only said secretor but not to what degree.    I suppose the blood test would say to what degree.  The member that asked about saliva who turned out one way and the blood test that turned out the other way was told that the saliva is more accurate.  I still have a hard time with tomatoes.. I crave them.

I had the lab do the Lewis test. But I already knew I was a nonnie, because I was getting allergic reactions to non-nonnie food.


Mind saying which non nonnie foods for instance?     Just curious.

Not at all, it was safflower oil. I bought a  rice milk that contained it and broke out in rashes. It's neutral for the secretor but avoid for the nonnie.

Hi Andy,

Quoted Text
Here's a site in the UK that apparently does Lewis blood testing as well as Secretor Saliva testing.  I haven't used them so can't comment and I'm not sure how it would work with regards to your being in Sweden.  Perhaps you could contact them to see.

http://bloodgrouptest.co.uk/page6/page6.html

Let us know how you get on.


I have already been in contact with them but they don't do the saliva test. It seems like the only way for us in Europe is to send the test sample overseas. It might go faster to send the saliva sample with mail from Great Britain than Sweden. I'll probably wait until I travel somewhere near the lab.

Tom Greenfield has a lab facility and does perform saliva testing for secretor status

Thanks for the tip Lola, I'll contact them again. It would be great for all of us who lives in Europe.

I did contact Tom Greenfield but he says that they only carry out Lewis tests in their lab and that they currently send any saliva samples to the U.S. for analysis.

So for now it seems like there is no lab in Europe that can do this test.
