Knowing your secretor status which is a spit test that can be completed through the mail would be the best thing to  do for the moment.
What  diet are you following and do you have health challenges?

well the staples of my diet are
smoothies (pineapple, banana, yogurt, flax or hemp seed, blueberries, soy milk, spinach)
juice (carrots, lemon, celery, cucumber, spinach)
6 or so eggs a week
rice cereal with soy milk
ezekial bread with almond butter, nutella, or peanut butter and honey
tofu
pad thai noodles with peanut sacue

so all in all, maybe not enough calories.  but often, when i do eat a lot of calories(say refried beans on corn tortilla, with peanut butter jelly sandwhich and glass soy milk)  i'll get sluggish afterward.

no health problems i'm aware of.

Having your secretor status would make a difference.

Have you read the Live Right for Your Type Book, or the most recent book by Dr. D the Genotype diet?

A non secretors have higher protein requirements, and some of the foods change value based on the results.

The A's have the most profound difference between secretor and non secretor.

The Live Right book has details about secretor status.

typebase has all the updated food values

check out the differences in values for secretors and non secretors....
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm

beginning with soy

always check the ingredients listed in the back of the products you purchase, like the soy milk
and the pn...etc
you will learn to detect additives added, which are not compatible for your type.

I believe some labs are able to do the A1/A2 test (for a fee) at the same time as you have the secretor/non-secretor test done. Also in the past the Australian Blood Bank used to do it automatically, but possibly don't anymore. You need to make some phone calls around your state I would think. the A1/A2 might make a small difference in animal products, as you will see from the Live right book.

that is called a serotype panel......
a complete blood test, giving you your subtype, RH factor, and secretor status
also your MN status

I'm interested in knowing more about my type A subtyping, MN group, etc.

Can anyone suggest a lab service for this?  I live in SW Virginia.

I suggest Southwest Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ.  480-970-0000

http://www.scnm.edu/medcenter/laboratory.php

Request a "Serotype panel"
This will confirm your
Blood Type
Rh factor

Tell you Lewis group (determines secretor status)

It will also tell your subtype A1 or A2  
as well as MM, NN, or  MN

the biggest issue here for all nonnies is to cut back carbs but really cut back!!! ;)...no sugar, no honey but if you were a nonnie I'm sure you'd have remarked your reaktion on too much of carbs dito onto honey and other sugars, we love it salty and honey gives us.... :X :P feelings  ;) ;D ok this is only my reaction I don't really know how other nonnies feel with sugars ( but white choc. is still fine with me (grin)(blush)(grin) ;D

Thanks, C-SHARP.  Southwest was the only one I could find on internet search (what a chore).  Will contact.  Too bad I already did secretor test independently.   Not so economical.  ;)
