Where can I find the most up-to-date values?

TYPEbase4, a searchable food value database by blood group, now displays all updated values on listed foods. While further amendments will be few, this Errata and Clarifications Page will serve as our change log, showing any additions or modifications made relative to the food lists in Live Right 4 Your Type.

The Melatonin dose (200mg) in one of the Encyclopedia Protocols seems a bit high.
This was a typsetting error. The dose is 2 mg. No preparations exist in the 200mg strength!

The lectin lists on pages 348-49 conflict with the diet. Which is right?
1) Page 348 contains instructions which conflict with the type O food lists. The second paragraph under the heading Group O-Specific Lectins should be ignored in favor of the food list values. 2) Page 349 contains instructions which conflict with the type B food lists. The paragraph under the heading Group B-Specific Lectins should be ignored in favor of the food list values. 3) Page 349, regarding type AB: The statement that "Blood group AB should avoid any of the foods that contain lectins capable of reacting with groups A or B" is only a key to understanding many of the type AB food values. It does not mean that ABs should use the A and B food lists instead of the AB food list -- which is based on more than just lectin avoidance, as are all the food lists. The AB food lists contain the specific values to be followed.

For type O's in the Anti-inflammatory protocols, Yucca is listed with one value as a food and another as a medicine.
Both entries are correct. Yucca is to be avoided for the reasons mentioned in the food list. Concentrated yucca saponins (the supplement recommended as an anti-inflammatory) are used in the dosages indicated for inflammation. These are two separate substances with differing effects: one is the whole food, the other is an extract of specific active compounds.

Some of the herbs listed as cooking herbs in Eat Right 4 Your Type conflict with the herbs used as medicine in ther Protocols.
Several people wondered why certain herbs or spices used in cooking which were listed as "avoid" for their types in Eat Right found their way into therapeutic recommendations in the Encyclopedia. Consider these new values -- fenugreek for Bs, for example -- as updates. New techniques, new discoveries and wider research have resulted in the several changes and additions in foods and herbs found in the later books.

On page 565 Glucosamine, N-acetyl (NAG) has a different value as the page 572 NAG. Are they 2 different products?
No, it's the same product. All the usages listed are valid for N-acetyl Glucosamine, also known as NAG.

In the Blood Type Encyclopedia, on page 488 at the bottom of the page on the left, it lists Co Enzyme Q10: 3 mg. Is that correct, or should it be 30 mg?
It should be 30 mg. Many CoQ10 supplements have even higher dosages, due to the low bioavailability of the CoQ10 in those specific preparations. There is a fairly new product called "Q-Gel," which claims to deliver more of the active compound per mg than other formulations do.

On page 103 of the Encyclopedia, Dr. D'Adamo recommends vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) in a dose of 20-30mg/kg for Type O's. Can you confirm if this is correct?
That is an error: it should read, "2-3 mg/kg." We'll make sure the publisher is made aware of this correction.

Lamb is Neutral for Type A Non-secretors in Live Right 4 Your Type -- but in the BTD Encyclopedia, it's an Avoid. Which is correct?
Live Right 4 Your Type is correct: Lamb is Neutral for Type A Non-secretors.
