I think the self test from NAP is the most accurate type-test.

I thought I was a B until I did it. I was kind of surprised myself. Good thing I didn't know about the blood type diet then..Being a hippy, I was following vegetarian...anyway..

Hmmmm...so it was a doctor who originally told your mom that you were Type O, huh?  And then not one but two NAP tests said A?  WEIRD.  You know what I'd do, just to be SURE at this point?  I would go to a blood bank and donate blood.  Trust me, they don't want to get your type wrong, because it is their patootie on the line if they send the wrong type of blood for a patient.  They are extremely accurate with their testing.

I would just do that to be sure at this point.  BYOJ, btw, as in, bring your own juice of a compliant variety.  Otherwise, they may try to pressure you into drinking OJ and/or eating a WHEAT cookie.

Sounds like sneaking behind enemy lines for a lab test. Good idea to get the Blood Bank or some professional laboratory to confirm the type though. You need good basic knowledge to get anywhere.

stefina,

Apparently I'm an "A" Teacher... and I'd been on an O-nonnie diet for just over two whole years.

That meant lots of red meat.  I've been dealing with aches and pains in my sternum, neck, and entire left arm for just over a year now, although the diet did stop the irritable bowel I'd had for 21 years, which was a huge benefit.

For the last three days I've been following the Teacher diet and taking the suggested supplements, and I'm already feeling a huge difference, and my abdomen has already started to go down noticeably.

Since I found out today that it's entirely possible that, since I sent off my secretor test two years ago as an "O", and that's the antigen they test for, that I might actually be an "A" secretor after all... So I'm taking the "non" off my avatar until I know for sure.

Ron, so glad to hear you are already feeling better. I can only imagine how awful you must have been feeling on the O diet.   I know how awful I feel if I eat avoids let's say for a week.    Anymore I can't even imagine 2 years of that!! So bless your heart for finding out the solution and not giving up.   HUGS

The most important thing is that it's been four days now and, without red meat, but on the Teacher diet, I've had no IBS symptoms and my morning breath was virtually nil when I woke up this morning.

To me, that's huge.  I could never figure out why my bowels were always such a problem.  When I thought I was a Hunter, I figured it was an inflammatory problem to do with my "being" an O non-secretor, because I couldn't tolerate wheat or most carbs, as I thought they would cause yeast overgrowth and intestinal lining inflammation.

...So I was totally thinking in terms of a hyper-sensitive, hyper-intolerant inflammation issue, rather than the complete opposite:  a bacterial over-permissiveness issue!  I thought my system was too intolerant, not too tolerant!

I never thought there would be a cancer risk in me and, truth be told, I don't have any whorls on my fingerprints, so I suppose that helps a bit.  But it's nice to know after 38 years of unending discomfort and seemingly inexplicable health problems, that a reason existed for all of it.

Dollars to donuts..that you are a Warrior...Ok, lets see if my prediction comes true..

I had pretty bad IBS when I was eating red meat in my twenties. The only thing that stopped it was wheat bran..a Warrior beneficial! How cool is that?!!

Dear Ron, I'm so glad that being a Teacher is working out for you and your body! I think that it is such a huge testament to the BTD/GTD that in 4 DAYS you are already feeling the benefits!

Now that you've spent so much time on the "wrong" foods, perhaps it will be easier for you to avoid them in the long run.  

Yea! for finding the 'right' path.

Actually, as my torso is longer than my legs, the top halves of my legs are longer than the bottoms, and my ring fingers are longer on both hands, the exhaustive chart in the back of the book says that it doesn't matter if I'm a secretor or non-secretor, because it's "Teacher" for both.

So I'm a Teacher, no matter what...

Yes, but do you have a big, long head? I measured the top halves of my legs longer too.. Are you tall? I thought I was a Teacher going by my measurments also..Dr. C thought she was a Teacher..remember? Dr. D said no way, I was a Warrior.

The diets are pretty similar but Teachers get to live in cheese land ...

Well Mayflowers, my sinuses do get a bit stuffy after these new cheeses, if that makes you feel better.   But hey, you can eat WHEAT again!

After a few years, you may not miss dairy. I am so unused to eating it, I don't want to bother, except for butter which I didn't consider dairy for so many years.
I also don't want to deal with the congestion & the other "C" problem which dairy does so well!!

I'm in Illinois & if I have to travel thru Wisconsin, I have to go incognito! Those "Cheeseheads" wouldn't like me!
Neither would the beer & brats crowd for that matter!
Hey, I'm an O. I can eat the dairy cattle later on!

Sweeeet wheeeeat!  The funny thing is, now that I can eat it again all my cravings are gone.  It's not psychological.  It's physiological.  I like it, but I don't feel  a terrible craving for it anymore.  GTD fixed me.

This thread reminds me of what my friends always ask me..

"what if it turns out you're a different blood type than you think, and it's all been in your head?"



I don't even doubt my O'ness.    One lick of wheat, or a few days without meat & I'm swine feed.

Accidental,

I think I might... it would set my mind at ease if I'm a secretor.  

But it would never explain my bizarre sensitivities that are so unlike my father, who is also an A-Teacher.
