I have a question that even my ND wasn't able to answer...thought folks here or Dr. Dadamo might point me in a direction for an answer.

I am a non secretor A rh -. Recently diagnosed as hypothyroid. I have been on BTD since April 2009 with good results, now refining it to eliminate foods that interfere with thyroid (eg coffee is a beneficial for As, but not for folks with thyroid condition.)

Question: I have been looking into getting onto the bovine dessicated thyroid. The porcine one is out of the question for me for a number of reasons.

How does going on a bovine dessicated thyroid fit with my secretor status? I know the medicine is made from the glands of a cow, but since beef is an avoid, is this problematic for me?

Any insights appreciated. Or links to relevant research.

Looking at the reason that beef is an avoid might help you with the answer.

It is more the meat muscle/protein for an A that is a problem for an A. The  dessicated hormone should not be a problem as it does not contain any of the muscle tissue.
IMHO

Great thank you makes sense....I know that homeopathy often uses the glands of animals. I see in the US now all dessicated thyroid is porcine, which I do not like but apparently in Canada we can get bovine. Concerns over BSE is my understanding of why manufacturers stopped making bovine dessicated thyroid.

This is what I have read quite some times now. I am not sure, but is it correct that the only 'bad' about (organic) beef (and other red meats for that matter) for the typical A is that its simply tough for the body to digest? If so, I would presume that taking some kind of digestive enzymes whenever an A eats beef should make it neutral, right?

Also, just to check; dairy and wheat do contain lectins that are harmful (to some), right?

I believe that with common commercial beef and pork, beside the lectine issue for pork, there is just a lot of cholesterol for As. If I would ate beef I'd need grass-fed  as an A more than Bs and Os. I can tolerate small portins of rare or raw bef every some months no more, and I do not peruse them, mat be once or twice a year

I doubt that it is this easy or Dr. D. would probably have pointed it out - after all, many people would rather pop a "pill" than give up their steak.

You can see the lectin report in Typebase for each food...

Wheat does contain the WGA lectin.

There is no lectin data for whole milk, so I doubt there is a lectin in dairy products, unless it is introduced by some additive...

I have wondered about another conundrum: would taking lactase relieve the symptoms of lactose intolerance?  As for beef, even if I could digest it all right, the horrible pain in my body is going to be there no matter what, would be a reasonable assumption - I think!

I actually ordered such a supplement a few days ago:
http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Dairy-Digest-Complete-90-Vcaps/7269?at=0

Haven't received it yet, but have good hopes.

Not that I am going to increase my avoid dairy consumption, yet I hope it will help alleviate reactions whenever I cannot choose my meal and some kind of avoid dairy is in it.
