My Dad has recently developed a throat condition. He is A+ (I get my blood type from him). Often after he eats a meal he has to run to the bathroom to regurgitate it. He says he gets an uncomfortable feeling in his chest. I've asked if he's noticed any certain foods that trigger it and he's mentioned meat such as steak and roast and carbonated beverages as well. He said even apple juice triggers it. He can't go to the doctor right now. Any type A's know what this could be? I really want to get him on the diet but he is very resistant to change.

Could be reflux related.  Perhaps a hiatal hernia. Could be something completely different.

Removing the offending foods could help. So could the A diet.

Sounds like he has nutcracker esophagus--- he needs to see a Gastroenterologist.

give him the choice......to either keep living with the problem or get better by following a lectin free anti inflammatory approach

If it came about suddenly then he should definately see a doctor.  If he has always dealt with this, then he should still see a doctor.  Sounds like acid reflux of some type.  

For me a lot of acidic foods and drinks like coffee set the stage for this to happen to me.  Greasy foods, tomato sauce, smoking, alcohol can definatley contribute to this as well.

Why can't he see a doctor right now? Even rapid dietary changes may not be enough to heal existing problems.

At the  very least, is he willing to stop eating the foods he's identified as triggers? All of them are "avoids" for type A anyway, but he may be willing to stop eating foods he's noticed an obvioius reaction to, even if he's not willing to try the BTD.

I have the same problem. I found out it is Eosinphilic Esophagus. It occurs when our immune system helpers (white blood cells) invade the esophagus and cause inflammation. Those white blood cells help in other parts of the body, but are not supposed to be in the esophogus. They originally get there because of repeatedly eating the same foods you are actually allergic to as well as stress. If this is what he is experiencing, he will probably need to see a Gastrologist and get a endoscopy. Your father may have had this a few times as a child. I hope this helps!

Wow. First of all thanks everyone for the input. I'm a newbie here (and to the diet as well) and this seems like a really great group.

Additional info: he says that he got this from drinking alcohol too much. He is easily depressed but has just gotten a new job. He hasn't had insurance which is why there hasn't been a doctors visit. Hoping for one soon.

I looked up nutcracker esophogus and the hiatal hernia. Very good recommendations but I personally think he has GERD. I know its mentioned for type As in the books. Ill have to look up the condition michele mentioned too. That actually sounds more like what I get from time to time by eating the wrong foods

Oh and I meant to answer ruthie too. People over here are very "that's the way its been forever so it can't possibly be wrong to eat". Haha. I'm thinking I may see which foods to avoid with GERD and the BTD and tell him he's on a gerd diet. If its something like that hed be more willing to cooperate. Go figure

Very interesting!  I have dealt with a very similar thing.  Been trying to figure it out.  I am using aloe gels and peppermint gels currently and they seem to be helpful.  I also cheat and use antacids still on occassion.
