The Blood Type Diet Archives Volume 13
Did I bring up a sticky topic?

I posted a few days ago about my A pos husband who's gone toward diabetes. But I'm getting no response. We've both been doing ER4YT since October of '98. I'm an O neg, and I did very well, but he never did.
We had his blood fully serotyped, because we thought he might be an A2--who should eat more flesh foods, apparently--but he's not. However, he's always done better on chicken and turkey than on soy. Now, his grain-based diet is actually making him very ill--he's got the scary pre-cursors to adult onset diabetes, which runs in his family.
I got NO responses to my first post, which is bizarre for this board. Someone e-mailed me privately about Zone ratios and the insulin-glucagon connection (thanks--we're on it). But that was it. What's going on?
He's cut all grains and fruit out of his diet, and he's gone back to zone ratios for each of his meals--he's doing much better. But what's the story for A's with family tendencies toward diabetes? They certainly can't be expected to base their diet on grains and soy, right?
