Hello !

I don't know my secretory status, the problem is, that I called many laboratories in Poland (West Europe) and genetic centres and NO ONE know what I mean.

Today I try to call some another laboratory in Warsaw, last, the bigest and main laboratory.
But everyone asks what I want the result - to which the symbol is stored result.

And about PROP propylotiouracyl status - also no one know what I mean.
What kind of a symbol are marked results ?

Can anyone help me?

If professors from the laboratory tell me that they don't perform such research, what to do?  
Can I do myself such research and how?

Thank You.

alexandrasandra,

you find testing facilities in some limited places. I suppose there is one in UK. I just cannot recall where. Please do not be surprised that many medical people around the globe are not aware of the tests that you have mentioned. I am in Nepal and have not yet done my secretor test and prop test. I will do so only when I am in a country where the tests are done! I have assumed myself a secretor (among the 80%)! If you are thinking of genotyping yourself based on the Genotype Diet book, please think of using the advanced calculator and can assume yourself secretor and see where you fall and for this, you do not need prop testing at all!

For Secretor status:

If doing genetic testing, look for stuff related norovirus susceptibility

If doing blood test, look for a test that determines Lewis blood type

For PROP ask for tester strips in a biology department at a school at the liceum or uniwersytet level.

Biology instructors often use these in simple genetics labs.

Strip is just paper saturated with PTC or PROP.  These strips are only a few cents a piece so if they have them they will just give them to you.

The PROP tester strips are include in the GenoType kit:

You can also get just the strips directly from biology or science supply companies.  I am unfamiliar with Polish companies involved in supplying biology labs.

Here is a US company selling the strips:

THANK YOU !!! Very helpful answer. I hope, maybe when I say about norovirus and antibody  Lewis, someone in Poland can make me such tests.

Quoted from Kumar
If you are thinking of genotyping yourself based on the Genotype Diet book, please think of using the advanced calculator and can assume yourself secretor and see where you fall and for this, you do not need prop testing at all!

Also: Often, Secretor Status doesn't affect Genotype on the Advanced Calculator.
For example:

Of the 12 possible measurements for B+ women:

Secretors: 10/12 Nomad; 2/12 Gatherer; no Explorer.
Non-Secretors: 5/12 Nomad; 5/12 Gatherer; 2/12 Explorers.

If you are a secretor, chances are quite strong that you're a Nomad, versus Zero that you're an Explorer.
If you're a non-secretor, however, you could be any one of the three.

Maybe I should have pointed this out earlier-- if you use the advanced calculator, you do not need the PROP test results.
