I just found out yesterday that I am a non-secretor. I'm following the Explorer diet right now so I'm not really sure it will matter a lot as far as food choices go but I wanted to know.
It does however explain why the BTD was not working very well for me. I was following the secretor eating plan  
I am going to get the LR4YT book from the library again and read up on secretor status a little more (I've read everything here already, looks like we kind of get the short end of the stick in a lot of cases   ).

I have the test now, but haven't taken it until the coughing situation gets better, which I think it will with the GTD. I also noticed a light bloody nose a few times, hopefully due to the dry heat. Now my GT doens't depend on secretor status, but I want to know anyway.
I used to think nonniedom was another diet, but I read that it also means you are more prone to certain diseases1
But, I suppose if you keep the diet, you are as OK as a secretor.

Finally Mrs T!!!!  Canít wait to hear if you are one of us or not.

The dry weather here in Chicago land has given me a slight bloody nose too.  Every other day being springtime rain or artic tundra is playing havoc with my sinuses.  We just have to be tough to endure DA weather.

Are you looking for a way to remain vegetarian somehow? Going to be a challenge with the soy ban I think. Not much regular eggs either. Easier with BTD but perhaps won't work very well. Didn't in my case.

Proto, Yes I think I am going to stay vegetarian for now. It would be easy to go back to meat if I had eaten it in the past, but I haven't.  As a kid I though I would rather starve to death then eat meat. I have contemplated giving turkey a try but I just can't bring myself to do it.
So far I am doing just fine with the Explorer diet. I am just a little low protein wise, averaging about 45 grams a day instead of the 60 I should be getting according to the calculators I have looked at. I could easily get enough if my body liked the whey powder we are allowed.

Thank you for the warm welcome everyone

You can get rice protein powder too  which I think is not mentioned anywhere but is an ingredient in some BTD protein blend. The quality of rice protein is said to rival soy. I just hate the taste and need to hide it in some sauce or make sweet shake out of it. Another more or less complete protein can be found among carbs as you probably know - the quinoa.
