Hello bluepearl and welcome to the fourm.

Secretor & non-secretor status is covered in Dr. D's latest book on the diet, Live Right 4 Your Type, but you can read the short tutorial here, and also in Dr. D's wiki entry

Dr. D has also a Health Library Series book on Diabetes which should answer your questions on the GI of foods, and how important/not important that is on the BTD.

Again, welcome! Please continue to ask as many questions as you need.  We are all here to help each other succeed in this new way of living and eating.

You're welcome!  There's a lively bunch of posters here, who are very eager to help you succeed on this program.

I highly recommend checking out other areas of the website, specifically the Media Center page, where you can read main stream articles about the diet, listen to Dr. D lecture and speak on radio shows, as well as see some power point presentations Dr. D has given.

I also encourage you to check out the Frequently Asked Questions page, as well as the hundreds of entries in Dr. D's ASK Column and what he has to say in his Blog.  Knowledge is power, and there's lots here to emerse yourself in. Enjoy!

you should be more concerned with eating avoids.

'avoid grains' will only raise your blood sugar levels, causing insulin resistance.

hope you don t drink coffee.......?

Actually, I have been controlling my diabetes with how I eat (and don't eat) for now about 8 years.  I have been aware of wheat and glutens for about 20 years.  I still have to work on the occasional Starbucks coffee intake.  What I did find interesting is the foods on the avoid list were instintively being avoided with the exception of a few and then I never seem to snap that it was a gastro war due to those items.  I see there is alot to mentally digest as well and look forward to learning as much as possible.  Thanks to all who can impart there knowledge to this ever learning mind so I can make this flesh behave! ! !

Welcome to the forum, blupearl.

You did not mention if you owned any of the ER books.  Since you are new to this lifestyle, you can utilize the Typebase4 to check food values for beneficial and neutral foods for your blood type:

Yes I have ER4YBT and CRFYBT - in fact - just made a bananna pineapple smoothie - not bad (silken).  There are alot of places here to find info and people have shared some interesting links that were good too.  I just peeked at your link and that will be a reference forever.  I think I will start a personal O cookbook for easier access to good eating.  I have younger newly married friends that are O's and she is already asking for O recipes.  Can't think of a better gift to help them on their way to health and happiness.  I think recipes converted for diabetics would be great.  High glycemic index foods are on the hit list and some folks get discouraged when they see some of the ingredients and think they can't have that but they could make a substitute and if it's already done for you then what could be more incouraging.  Hey, is there a link for what I am already thinking of doing?

As well, you can add recipes to the Rcipe Index once you get your blood type 'O' cookbook organized.

Click on a key ingredient in your recipe, scroll down to where it states: "Add recipe..."
