I am part of a family with very serious, early heart disease.  So far, I know that we are type A's and type O's.  All of my three siblings have had bypass surgery.  Two of the three who had heart attacks prior to their bypass surgery are type A,o ne of my brothers and my only sister.  My brother, who had a quadruple bypass but did not have a hear attack is a type O.  My male cousin, who is a type O had a quintuple bypass at age 49 without having a hear attack.

We also are the family in whom the rare blood antigen, Mg, was discovered.  So far, this rare blood antigen does not seem to have an effect on the heart disease, since all of my eight male cousins have had heart disease in one form or another at a fairly early age and only two have the Mg antigen.  My sister and I are the only females to have the antigen.  She had a heart attack in December, 2010, and a triple bypass.

I have no idea of my siblings and cousins secretor status.  It would certainly be interesting to find out this critical information as it relates to our heart disease history.  I can assume, since I am a non-secretor, some of my relatives are non-secretors as well.

My cardiologist at Mass General is interested in studying our family to look for markers of our heart disease history.

It is certainly interesting (and scary) to see a family with such a terrible heart history.  I am hoping I can beat my gene's with the Genotype diet.  People keep telling me that if I have the genes, there is nothing I can do about it, but I can only hope they are wrong.

I have already talked to HER and all of my other (female) practitioners about non-secretor status.  She is certainly interested, as is my PCP.

Our genes are not our destiny.

Phenotype versus Genotype... we are plastic beings to some extent so even though you have the gene you may not get the disease.


You do know how medicine advances, Right?  One funeral at a time...
I had a doc tell me ( he was 50 or more) "Well I never learned that in medical school."

For goodness sake.. can't the medical schools at least teach them to be curious.

Keep repeating that as a mantra add it to your signature line  "Our genes are not our destiny." Read about the Agouti mice.

I put this text to the blog first but now I put it here. Do you have some knowledge I haven't...?
---

If non-secretors (especially among type A individuals) were wise when eating lower protein diet, so WHAT macro nutrients should they emphasize if
-they are more sensitive to carbohydrates than secretors and
-don’t digest fats either so good as secretors do?

Or have I understood something wrong…?


He [Jesus] is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

But for the A individuals, at least drinking lemon every day or sprinkeld over meat will help to keep the blood flowing -

the same the day before and during any flight and using compression stockings to equalize cabin pressure will go along way..

taking the sups (aspirin).. to prevent heart issues while sleeping, take them late in the evening to keep potency at their highest in the morning, when you might need help the most.. also keep fresh bottles of aspirin at your bedside in case you ever feel heart issues...

and for woman remember: we feel heart issues in our jaw or shoulders before in the arms even.. and we need to call 911 faster.. so for every A that read the article.. you can do many easy things to save you and your life, just by knowing of a potential weakness...

My friend from my fraternity passed away in his sleep from a heart attack at age 29.  He was blood type O and a hunter i believe.  Guy nearly single handedly pulled us out of going down financially, reestablished relations with rich alums that stopped supporting us, and was going to get married a month from the day he died.
He died on april fools day.  He was a high strung guy and jumpy all the time, but a mastermind and very caring person, very well liked.

Does anyone know if A explorers have a lower heart risk?  It isn't a risk mentioned in the book.

I sent Dr. D's blog link to my cardiologist.  It will be interesting to see what she has to say.  She is a fairly well-known cardiologist specializing in women's cardiology at Mass General.  She is one smart cookie, so I would love to hear her opinion.

Patty,
I am very interested in this also!


Easy E,
Do you still smoke? Are you drinking lemon water to thin your blood among other health benefits? What do you do to fight stress?
You sound like a smart (and funny ) guy....follow what you know....you'll be great!

She found it very interesting and does not doubt that there is a blood type connection.

He did not take care of himself.  He would stay up for several days at a time, i think he used speed type meds to party and then study and not have sleep get in the way.  He also drank and smoked and prob used other substances as well.  And he would always take on too much.  But he was bt O and i think a hunter.  Detail oriented, 360 awareness, understood things working together, etc.  Did not rest like a hunter needs tho.

My dad was a cardio surgeon for 20 years, now is retired.  But he told me there is a gene that enables people to break down cholesterol in foods, esp. meat that people either have or are missing (or something like that).  He said it is not dependent on blood type.  He saw people of all blood types with and die from heart disease.

They never examined blood type frequency related to heart disease prob.  I'm gonna ask him more on this and get back.

Cardio surgeon's are not schooled in this type of science, if you are a surgeon all you think that the patient needs is surgery. If he is retired his education is ancient. I work with medical docs they simply are not curious enough to move into any area where they can't give a pill for a condition.

Eventually enough patients will demand a change but these things are slow.
