Questions about sweat, blood type and diet

Posted By: OJoan

Since following the type O diet I perspire far more freely than in the past.
This may be coincidental to two very humid summers, poor memory about the
more distant past, and/or my changing hormones. However, I do recall in the
past staying dry while those around me dripped.
However, I was told recently about a young woman who had a splenectomy
and now can no longer sweat, which made me wonder if the ABH part of the
immune system is involved in sweating, and if so, what role might diet play?

In browsing PubMed, an abstract by Saito, S (1994) on ABH blood group markers in
sweat (taken from men and women who used saunas) showed that there were multiple
antibody responses to ABH antigens in SDS-PAGE separated samples of sweat.

Does anyone have personal anecdotes about shifts in ability to prespire related to
change in diet?
Does anyone know of blood type specific responses to heat and humidity?
Given that saunas are used to rid the body of toxins, this could be useful to know.
