I have auto immune conditions for a long time now.
Following the Blood type diet and eliminating wheat and most grains except for rice has given me some improvements with these conditions.
I would love to hear from others and their success. While mine has been small I know I am on the right track, finally.
My sjogren's syndrome(SS) dryness has been improved as I rarely suffer from dry eyes,and dry burning mouth any more - these were a daily classic feature of SS. I am ever hopeful of more improvements especially for the muscle pain and nerve pain.  Good Luck every one and keep on trying.

Hello Leslee, nice to meet you :)

Following the BTD has definitely made a huge difference for me. My fibromyalgia symptoms are much reduced and I feel better in general, lots more energy and endurance. When I give in to temptation and eat wheat it REALLY does me in! Glad to hear you've found a big difference for you too Leslee, that's excellent!

Welcome to the board, I look forward to your posts :)

have you decided which system you want to follow?
there s a test you can take to help you determine which will be more targeted for you!

Hi Leslee, and good to meet you!

I deal with dry eyes (not dry mouth), and chronic fatigue.  An extremely high level of compliance on the diet is necessary for me to be creative and healthy.  

I have actually switched over to the genotype diet, which seems to make me feel much better (after a few weeks of transitioning).

Hi Leslee, I also have Sjogrens. I take medicine from the doctor for it, but I don't think I would be anywhere as good as I am with this way of eating.  I ate the O nonnie way for years, but now I am eating for a gatherer.  I can really tell a difference when I get off track.  Please stay with us!

I just notice that you are an O nonnie and a Gatherer just like me!!! Cool.

It seems hard to change to gatherer, I need time to work it out - maybe after Easter.  
lola - I did the test when it 1st came out  and it said only a minimal difference between the two. I tried again and the lines are equal. I have the book as I'm interested in everything of Dr D's and will read it again soon. I need a daily menu that works for me not just lists of foods.  it also seems to have mainly lamb as a meat and not many veges with substance.
Meribelle, Hi sister o nonnie gatherer, what changes have you noticed when switching to gatherer diet - I would love to hear. Was it hard to change?

Leslee:  I came out even (b/t BTD and GTD) when I did the test the first time.  I re-did the test, switching from Yes to No on "I want to lose weight" and it swung over to BTD.

I have MS and have had it for nine years now. I was diagnosed at a young age and for so long I didn't know how to help myself. This last year could easily have been the hardest yet. I felt as though I was out of options as far as medications etc. I'm not responsive to many anymore. Thank goodness I heard about this diet.

Right off the bat I started seeing changes, and I had only eliminated red flag foods from my diet. Nearly everyday I saw improvements! I bought eat right and have been following the diet more fully. It has only been a month and I can't remember the last time I felt so good. I have more energy and no more dark circles under my eyes. All of my MS symptoms have improved since I started the diet. It is amazing! I'm impressed at how easy it has been for me to adapt to.
