Ron,

Much success with your new diet...  I'm usfre it will be quite an adjustment, but your health should get better because of the change.

I'm positive I'm a B.  Virginia Blood Services and Red Cross both tested me as such.

Quoted from 521
I wonder sometimes if AO's differ from AA's, in terms of their physiology and temperament.

Me too.

Quoted from 521
The only thing that remains for me to know now, is whether or not I can still be a non-secretor... since, when Great Smokey Labs sent back my results, they already had "Type O" on them.  So, clearly, I must've indicated beforehand what my blood type was.  And, if they were only testing for the presence of "O" antigen in my saliva, then there might've actually been "A" antigen there, and I'm a regular secretor.

It hasn't been long since I did the secretor test, and I can confirm that they do ask for your blood type.  Probably saves them a lot of trouble: if you indicate type A, they only have to look for A antigens, instead of looking for A, B, and H antigens in every sample.

I give blood also and I am an A. Now can the blood bank tell me if I am an A1 or A2? Twister, you work there, do you know? Will it matter on the diet in the long run?...Aani


Aani, if you decide to do the SWAMI down the line, A1/A2 could potentially make some small differences even though you do GTD now.

That's incredibly horrifying.  

How many deaths have secretly resulted from this kind of mistyping?

Thanks, Joe.  I think so, too.  

I went out just last night and bought some glucosamine and chondroitin, as well as some oregon grape to kill off bacterial overgrowth in my bowels, and already I'm feeling very good.

I just put in an order for Deflect A, so that should be arriving within the next week, too.  And once I can finalize what my genotype is, I'll probably be sending off for the genotype supplements, too.

Drive,

I've already emailed Great Smokey Labs and asked them.  Let's see what they say.

Ron...when I first did my secretor test through Francine she said that it was imperative that I give my blood type as the results could turn out wrong.

So glad that you are feeling better already.

You see?  I had a feeling this might be the case... Thank you for letting me know.

Also, who is "Francine"?

(By the way, I had both my parents secretor tested, and they both came back as secretors... However, I'm not sure if they both took the BT test.

...Actually, now that I think about it, since they both came back as secretors, that means that their BT antigens were detectable, so I think that means they correctly knew their blood types anyways.)

Francine is the person who used to distribute NAP through a Quebec, Canada site.  From my understanding she doesn't do it anymore.

Finding out you have a diffent blood type than what one thought, sure takes a person for a loop.

  When I was in highschool I got my blood tested in Biology class, unfortunalty another student told me that I was blood type A.  I didn't really start eating for type A untill 7 years ago, experimenting with lots of grains and vegetables and almost no meat.  

Within the span of 5 months I hade gone from the very best health in my entire life to barely being able to function for two hours out of the day.  In depsperation I did a colon cleanse which was my life saver at the time, I have never again experienced such a night and day change from a cleanse.  I stoped experimenting at this time, two years later I found out that I am O, both from a medical lab and from when I had a live blood analysis done. and the rest is history
  Well almost

Ron, that's fantastic news!  As I read your first post all I could think about was several months ago when you were so discouraged you quit the forums for a while.  No wonder!  Will you do something for us?  Will you take a "before" picture and an "after" picture?  Like will you post a "Ron on the O diet" picture, and 3 months from now post a "Ron on the A diet" picture?  I bet you're going to experience some real nice changes over the next few months.  You may not look like an ice bear anymore after you follow the right diet!

Okay, I'll do that.  

But, for the record, I never was morbidly obese or anything... probably because, growing up, my father essentially kept me on the same exact diet he felt best on, which was largely the "A" diet, in hindsight.

The only thing he did eat was a lot of wheat and dairy on pizzas and what, but he hated red meat with a passion, and wasn't much for dairy at all.

Tomatoes and wheat, however, were staples in our house, as he is very Spanish-Italian, albeit a mostly vegetarian type.

Ribbit,
I was thinking the same thing about Ron a few months back and his leaving the boards for a while out of frustration.  I hope he finally gets some results!  Congrats on finding out the truth!

  I got my liveblood analysis done in Surrey BC Canada, A husband and wife team, This is their web site  http://www.qwest4health.ca/.  I also did a biofeedback with them.  
They also follow the BTD however I don't know if they have caught onto the GTD yet.

  When I had the live blood done it was the first time anyone could even begin to tell me what was wrong with me, I previousely had several test done by the high tech medical labs we have here, and all my tests came out fine, of couse I knew that I wasn's fine.  And now that I understand how the different blood types function a few more peices of the puzzle are fitting into place .

I know I have a few more pieces to go and a little more self dicipline and I should fully recover.

Sorry IceBear Ron didn't mean to hijac you tread.

Good Lord, Ron, OMG an' all that. Holy cow. Makes me want to test myself with the extra kit I have.
I agree with the before and after shots. Or at least do a list for yourself of current complaints, large and small, and some weeks later go down the list and record the changes. And I bet there'll be changes you weren't looking for as well. That's what's happened to me and other people I know. Happy surprises.
Gotta go, best of luck, AND glad you came back and ended up testing yourself. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, yeah, and I recall the secretor test saying that you had to put down your blood type or they couldn't do it correctly. So you'll have to do another one, most likely, but that all-important secretor status knowledge is going to help you a ton!!
Let us know!

I'm shocked Ron, but relieved at the same time. You'll be in a new part of the same jungle, so go explore and come back with new findings! Dont leave anything to chance and assumption.

Waiting eagerly to hear more from you  !

Yes, I am eager to find out if I have to take the secretor test again...

As is usually the case with me, I will probably serve as some exemplar of worst-case scenario in future cautions to new arrivals to BTD.

Always, always, always, verify your blood type results with an actual test BEFORE you start the diet and/or take your secretor test.  Don't trust A-N-Y-O-N-E to know what your blood type is... not even your own cherished, absolutely certain, mother!

wow!! Ron.......yeah what a shocker. I'll tell ya, this thread makes me want to check mine. Tho I think that w/ all the surgeries I've had, mine is prob right. In the end, as you say, to be sure, is the key.
No doubt, you will start feeling so much better now that you're eating for the right b/t. I'm so happy for you. Funny how doing things on a whim pay off at times.

italy,

Since your secretor test results came back positive, then I'm willing to bet that's because it only detected the presence of type O antigen in your saliva.

I don't think it would've given you a positive result if you were any other blood type but A.

And, yes, in just the day or two that I started changing things and taking the chondroitin and other supplements for A and the Teacher type, I'm already feeling noticeably better.
