Well, we finally got the test and sent it away.  It was very fast, sent it out Monday and got the results today, Fridday. We both came out secretors!!  ;D I am surprised though, so surprised, I almost did not believe it when I saw it!!! It is good that we are both the same blood type and secretor status, it will make things much easier.  I wonder why things that are OK for secretors and not for nonnies bother me and not Paul? Because of this I was 90% sure I was a nonnie, though I am thirlled I am not (It means I can have my beloved feta cheese on occasion). I guess my recipes and menus will expand greatly now since I have been watching closely the amount of nonnie food I used. Hopefully we now can better refine the diet and move forward  :D Sandy O

Congrats Sandy and Paul on being secretors.  Yes, that will broaden your recipe files and food intakes.  Just a little word of caution since you did so well with the nonnie version.  Introduce the new foods a little at a time so you can be aware of some things that still might not agree with you.  Have fun in the kitchen.  :D

Individuality.  BTD is a guide, not exact.

Besides, what is your Rh status?  If one of you is Rh-, that would change things.

Mr. KK and I are both secretors, but I'm Rh- and he's not. Rh-'s require more protein and less grain.  I find I do better with virtually no grain, and following the arthritis program.

introducing them one at a time for a week at a time, will give you an even better picture of whether or not a food is bothering you.  (not to take away from debra's suggestion. :-) )         :K) to you debra.  :B

My DH got his results back fairly quickly as well. One week to the day of it being picked up and the results being delivered via snail mail. I was impressed. He is also a secretor. Thank goodness. If he had to give up corn too............   ::) :'(
;D

Hi Sandy  ;D :)
That's awesome that you and your husband have the same blood type and secretor status!  How that must simplify grocery shopping and cooking.  And I'm happy for you that you get to still have some of the secretor foods you love! :)  I'm about to take the plunge and figure out my secretor status, so I'm still trying to figure out if I want to hope for being a secretor or not.  (I'd love to have avocados for a beneficial, but it may not be worth all the other nonnie avoids!)
