Hi everyone!

I'm new and not quite sure where to post this, so I hope its okay if I introduce myself here.
I'm fairly new and hope someone can point me in the right direction to find out more about my blood type and well as a lifestyle suited for it.  

I just learned last year that I am a blood type ORh -, all my life I believed I was AB+.
Last year I was pregnant, my husband is O+...so imagine the disaster and the problems.

At the same time I also started falling really ill (still am, I'm 28 ). Even after the pregnancy had ended. Granted, I have been of not so good health for a while, but nothing like that. It is just like one thing after the other hits me since being with my husband...it's sad that I'm ill so often when we only try to be happy.

- Mononucelosis (lasted 6 mths, followed by 2 yrs weak immune system)
- HPV - Pap3
- 06' I started noticing a fructose malabsorption after eating american food (HFCS)
- 09' pre cancerous cells on the Cervix due to HPV
- 09' massive hair loss
- '10 Hashimoto, I'm hypothyroid ( and very thin!  )
- '10 Elvated prolactin leves and pituitary tumor
- '10 pineal gland cyst
- '10 unexplained groin pain and ovarian cysts

I have read as much as I can about O types and RH- types, and I have to say many things fit exactly, but many also don't fit at all. The way the character of an O person is described, well I'm the total opposite.
But I do have so many characteristics of RH- blood types, and all members of my family I know of are RH-, I'm the only O though, they are A-.

I was often wondering if my current illness may be a reaction to the former pregnancy, blood type or not...I'm sure it at least messed with my hormones.
I'm currently being treated with "cabergoline" pills for my tumor. No thyroid medication yet since my TSH is not too high, I just have a lot of anti-bodies.

I was a very healthy person until I was 17 you could say (always outside, robust), and I would like to get back to that..I just don't know how anymore and maybe I can benefit from certain lifestyle changes that harmonize bettter with my blood type.

If it helps in any way - I eat a high carb, low protein (meats) diet, rest is veggies and I rarely eat fruits. I need the carbs to stay at a healthy weight since my metabolism is so fast, I would dissappear without the carbs. I drink a lot of tea, rarely coffee and I love chocolate.

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

I would try increasing the amount of compliant meats (Beef, Buffalo, lamb, venison) in your diet.

Also with your collection of health problems, I would consider getting professional nutritional help.

Try following the appropriate blood type or genotype diet, which, since you are an O might well include much more meat protein and fewer grains. Meat is about the only thing that can put weight on me, esp. since I don't eat junk food or sweets.   If you eat dairy, you may need to stop, or at least greatly reduce, that.

Have you thought about getting the secretor test?  It's very helpful.

With the increase of good meat for your type, you will increase the amount of good fats.  From my understanding of BT O, the fats are a much better source of energy for you than the carbs.

Nyd, I am also O Rh-. Daily intake of lean, high-quality animal protein is definitely the way to go. Reduce the grain, delete the gluten and dairy. Since I started to eat like this I feel much better--more energy and less drowsy/drained. Hypoglycemia and anemia gone.

Have you read Dr. D's "Eat Right 4 For Type" book? That's the best way to get started.

Thanks everyone for the advice!

I do eat a lot of dairy, always have. That will be very difficult to cut down. Also I'm not really a big fan of meat, I only like to eat a little bit.
Basically I was raised to eat the opposite of the O-type diet. Why dod you think I felt healthy before? It's just I wonder if it really only is the diet causing it since I had healthier times.
I have to add though, when I was healthier I lived in Germany.

Goof meat is hard to find, my endo. actually said to cut down on meat since it contains hormones that are bad for my thyroid. I think organic meats would be the only choice and those are hard to find.

I have not made a secretor test, but I'm planning to get checked out all over by a naturopath. Just have to see what works with my insurance, cant' afford out of pocket.

Hi Nyd,
I never liked meat or ate very much of it but the transition when I went on the BTD has been much easier than expected. I really enjoy it now and don't miss dairy that much and my grains are way down, but wheat has been competely eliminated. I am also very thin (5'7 and 112 lbs) and do not find eating compliant carbs makes much difference, maybe 2-3 pounds. What would put weight would be refined carbs and sugar, but that wouldn't be a healthy weight gain.

I see you live in NY. Do you have a Wegmans near you? I get most of my organic meat (beef and chicken) there.

Good luck!
Lisa

Here's a link to a great video describing the O diet.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-VPbbu2pmU


Also, try http://www.localharvest.org

Type in your zip code and you'll find local sources of organic and grass fed meats. Lamb may be a good transitional food while you're reintroducing meat.

Nyd...Have you been tested for celiac?? My son is an O and at a ton of carbs/grains etc and never grew or gained any weight , we had him tested and sure enough...celiac as soon as we pulled him of the grains/gluten he gained 8lbs in a month!!! and we like you thought he needed carbs to keep his weight up and it was actually the exact opposite....

Also carbs in many people can casue emotional issues such as depression and anxiety especially if you are gluten intolerant and or celiac...just my thoughts.

Also I see you are in NY now, did you recently move? and was that when alot of your health issues started?

ARe you hyper thyroid or hypo thyroid?

I think step one is to eliminate all the "avoid" foods in your diet, even if it means replacing wheat with rice and dairy with farmer, goat, feta, and mozzarella cheeses. Focus on adding in healthy foods and eliminating the avoids, and don't worry so much about the quanties or frequencies. IT's OK to have a little more cheese than you should (as long as they're the right cheeses) during this transition.

What I have found with all illness and all people who follow their blood type diet is... they heal. They get healthier. So really, don't waffle back and forth or hum and hah about following your type. Just do it! Also, each blood type seems to have a chemical dependency, almost addiction like to the foods that are "avoids" for them. Whereas the foods that are highly beneficial are the ones that you don't ever really crave or have any real strong desire to consume. If someone told me their favorite foods to eat and they weren't following the BTD I would almost 100% be able to tell them what their blood type is just from their favorites. O's that aren't following the BTD will always say they LOVE cheese. A's will more than likely tell you they love a good piece of steak and some potatoes. lol
So if you want to be healthy, just follow your type. Medical Drs have an old flawed system that they follow and they like to medicate people. That's all they know. Just do it and you will feel AMAZING!


O positive baby boy.

Also Nyd, Dr. D'Adamo has said that it's more the wheat that messes with a person's thyroid and can cause the elevated auto antibodies.  Someone above mentioned celiac/gluten intolerance.  It's a major problem that can cause many problems in the body that don't seem related, but are.  I would agree, make sure you get off wheat/gluten and next would be dairy.  I also loved eating cheeses all of my life.  I find it was easier to find wheat substitutes, but I still allow some dairy in.  I am working on the dairy now.  Organic, grass fed meats will not hurt your thyroid.  Welcome to a great place to find answers to your health problems!

Sounds like hashimotos type thyroid disease, but again, get off the wheat first and foremost, then start adding in beneficial foods.  Which Dr. D book do you have?

Good article Lola.....I just recently had a patient who had pemphigus and I had never heard of it before.  It was the most awful thing though, blisters everywhere..  She unfortunately passed away from her other overwhelming health issues, but I'll never forget it.  So interesting that the BTD cured him....definately something to remember.
