BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  An 'O' Secretor Vitimin D Deficiency!!!
Posted by: 1323 (Guest), Thursday, February 15, 2007, 2:45am
Been having horrid muscle and body aches for such a long time I can't remember.  Been attributing this to my fibromyalgia.  And some of it is most likely from that.

Out of curiousity my NP did a vit. D level blood test.  I was EXTREMELY low.  

So she's got me beefing up for the moment to bring me up to par.  There is research  that not only does low D cause rickets and thinning bones but also contributes heavily to deep and lasting muscle fatigue.  

I suppose my being low is from not being aware of the blood type diet for years and then not being as compliant as I could be.  

But I think it's important for newbies to really know how anemic they can be just coming into the program and really find out where they are low and beef up on either supp's or the food that contains what they are low in.  

The important point for me is that when I came into the program, I didn't pay any attention to Vit. D because Dr. D's book says O's do not need to supp.  

Low and behold I did need to supp cause I it has taken me awhile to be as compliant as I am today.

In my charting of a weeks worth of food, I found the only thing I was not getting was 'D', but I spend time in the sun nearly every day. Also get some via the supplement route, so no worries. Just a note that D is not automatic in an O's diet. Most easily D is gotten from fish and dairy as well as some grains. The dairy and grain is mainly by supplement. Not all fish have a lot of D.

So, if you don't eat enough/the right fish and/or don't spend time in the sun, D could be an O issue.
