I guess this is as good a place as any to do a sort of introduction. I'm Susan, 44 yo, wife, mother, nurse, country dweller. I'm very fortunate to live in a house with four other "A's"
About three years ago I was researching what to do with my daughter (then 18 ) who seemed to be exhibiting signs of irritable bowel disease ... and I was listening to my friend go on and on about this conference she'd been to about eating right for your blood type
There seemed to be enough coincidental likenesses to catch my attention. A family history of digestive trouble, Kids with 'bubbles' the their throats alot ... Eliminating wheat and dairy ...
My daughter was willing to try and found some improvement. I wanted to lose weight so I thought I'd try it too.
I did not actually succeed with the weight loss until I counted calories within my blood type. 40 pounds! Yippee!
Recently, after fumbling with cafeteria food for two years, my daughter threw in the towel and went to our GP about her bowel trouble. I'm happy to note he suggested she try avoiding wheat and dairy. So, she's back on the bandwagon.
My husband and I both can clearly see that we feel better when we stick with our proper foods. We have no ongoing health problems but just note an increased feeling of fitness. Better skin, energy, less gastrointestinal distress.
We both have aging parents and see in them the toll eating poorly can take on our bodies. Gallbladder, hiatus hernia, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease. We're taking steps to head off those so called 'aging process disbilities' before they begin.

Susan,

Welcome to the BTD community! So nice to hear a great story like yours. Might I add, you lucked out having a whole household of A's to simplify your shopping and mealtimes.

Welcome Susan,

Your moniker is nearly as confusing as mine... SusanB who is an A.

I toyed with PaulB for mine, but as a type A moderator I thought I'd just confuse everyone.

Enjoy the forum.

All A's....I'm jealous!  Please spread the word, ok?  It's nice to hear of someone with a medical degree that believes in the diet!  I wish you even more success with the BTD!

Hi susan
I just joined the community as well.I am a nurse as well and  just discovered the diet as recommended by  a homepathic I went to  as I was just diagnoised with
osteoporosis.I am in good health except for this problem and I wanted to see
what other things may be avaible besides taking  the med the Doctor recommended
as it can have alot of side effects,I am interested in alternative medicine.I am taking calcium supplements as well exercise program. I am a type A as well and trying to follow the type A diet,looking for recipes for ezekiel bread as this bread is suppose to be benefical.I love to experiment with recipes so looking for recipes people tried that was successful with other gluten free breads or muffins. Hope the diet works well for your  family.  good luck

Hi sunshine and welcome!

Was there any celiac disease or lactose intolerance contributing to your osteoporosis?  If so, eliminating those foods will help tremendously.  There's also some great calcium supplements here at the blood type diet store, phytocal and clearcal, which are very easy to absorb and easy on your digestion.  Get into sardines and canned salmon (with bones), as they are also great for calcium.  I know most Os with osteoporosis or osteopenia see good results with the diet, and we have even less dairy than As get.

Click on Member Center up above, then avatar settings, to select your type A avatar and save yourself having to type your BT in every post.

Wonderful NEWS! and thank you for sharing. It is always encouraging to hear another success story. Considering I was just drowning my lonely sorrows in ice cream it is encouraging to be uplifted. Kudos again my friend and fellow A!
