In Response To: miniere's (Ed Mitchell)
I am a nutritionist(RD) and certified diabetes educator(CDE). I have worked with Meniere's Disease for several years now. Long before I became aware of the blood type diet, I used a diet designed to reduce the insulin response with great success. The guidelines are actually very close to Type O recommendations. I recommend that carbs be very limited am and midday, using only small amounts of fruits as needed. The daytime meals should be very mineral - rich(ie. LOTS of greens), and should include lean protein and small amounts of good fats. Evening meal and late pm snack should be individualized and can usually include natural carbohydrate foods along with - lots of green veggies!
I have found that the blood type diet(s) definately facilitate symptom management and very often symptom elimination.
Exercise, stress reduction, and herbs/supplements are also of great benefit but should be individualized.
A very common problem found in many Meniere's individuals is elevated triglyceride levels. Following a modest intake of grains and sugars will greatly improve this problem for most.
