Don't know what to do with coconut oil???  Cooking, flavoring?  I love coconut meat but I can live without it.  


I make tooth soap with it!

will you be following GTD or sticking with LRFYT for now, Virginia?

sprouting your lentils might be a better approach......

I've started using extra virgin coconut oil for my sauteing, saving the olive oil to drizzle on vegetables after they are cooked.  I always feel wary of stir-frying with olive oil since it is so heat unstable.

Well, my report just came up, after me emailing customer support.  I was shocked to see that they classify me as a non secretor, too!  

Like O in Va said, new reading to do!  Bummer!    Good to know, though!

Off to the nonnie clubhouse!

I'm going to stick with LRFYT until I do SWAMI.  I can't figure out whether I'm Gatherer or Explorer, I'm torn, I seem to have a lot of both.  It's not important anyway right now.  Now that I know secretor status it will be easier to do LRFYT.  Eventually, in the hopefully near future, I'll SWAMI and move on to the next phase.  I'm still just a newbie, but I'm impatient and want it all NOW.

Good to know, Victoria.  I've never used coconut oil.  My past consumption of coconut has been...coconut cake, almond joys, pina colatas...umm...you get the picture.

Welcome to the world of nonnies.  Bummer, I think not!  Now you know and can better serve your health.

O in Virginia & labrat,

Welcome to the Type O Nonnie club!  A couple more significant differences between the O Secretor BTD and the O Non-Secretor BTD are, for Nonnies:
(1) that carrots are beneficial (yeah!)
(2) your recommended doses of meat and poultry are higher (also yeah!)
(3) On the downside, mozerella and feta cheese become avoids (boo!)
(4) But red wine becomes a beneficial-it helps protect the gut which is more vulnerable because our gut mucus does not have the defense of our blood type secreted in it.

It's fascinating wondering what you are... Mine took a couple of weeks.  I had it done twice because I wanted to make sure.

Thank you.  Yay for red wine (keep the carrots.  jk)!  Boo for no mozzarella and feta.  I have a nice log of goat cheese in the fridge calling my name...but I suppose it's a no-no.

I'm a little concerned that mine is incorrect, too.  I had to rinse with cold water a few times to work up enough saliva to fill to the 3 ml line.  I'm wondering whether that might have diluted my secretions, or washed them away, so that I tested as a nonnie.  Does that make sense?     Before that thought occurred to me I had already called up NAP to check that it was ok to be on antibiotics and do the secretor test.  I was told yes, that's fine, that secretor status is not affected by that.  I'm a worry wart!

You did say that you had a problem with oats and wondered why, right?  They are bad for nonnies.

I don't know about retesting, especially at $50 a pop.  I may see if I can get my Dr. to put the Lewis test on my next blood work.

I don't drink but is it a good idea to drink some red wine?  I like wine but it's just not something that I look for.  I can take it or leave it.

Yes, it makes sense about oats now.  I wonder if the Red Cross or blood donating center would do a lewis test.  Someone here had mentioned that.  Worth asking anyway if you give blood.

I called and asked about that.  They sent me a copy of my last analysis, at the time I tested positive for Hep C.  Now, things may have changed but at that time, they were only testing for the 2 type of Hepatitis, HIV and venereal diseases.  No general blood work at all.

I'm going to talk to my Dr. and tell him about the diet and ask for the Lewis test just to confirm.

I'll probably ask my doctor about it, too, next time I'm there.  I'm due to go back before the end of the year.

Mine has been after me to do something for YEARS so if I tell him that this will help with the diet I'm on, he may do it.  Doesn't cost him anything,
