Eating With Your Proper Blood Type, What Do You Think?
0

6 posts in this topic

I eat the same thing every day with barely any modifications and I was thinking that to maximize the results of going Gluten-Free I should combine this with eating right for my blood type but it seems as doing this while avoiding gluten is just incredibly challenging. Some stuff going as far as coconut oil being bad for anyone but some things really make sense. I am of type O and it warn a lot about avoiding glutens and grains even corn. Now I though I was going good with cereal and bread being gluten-free but with this it's like all I can eat is meat and more meat and some fruits.

 

Pretty boring, gotta avoid coffee too, that one thing that actually make me feel really good.

 

I can eat almonds but I have to avoid peanuts? Makes no sense to me nuts are nuts and it says to avoid nightshade yet tomatoes are ok. Gets me confused a lot, what do you guys think?

We have had this discussion before and everyone with Celiac has different blood types and needs to avoid gluten. Not just the ones with whichever blood type it is.

There is no scientific evidence for this blood type eating.

I've been told by a homoepatic doctor to eat following my blood type. While I'm willing to give it a try in my own home for several reasons that I'm explaining in another post, I'm not going to subject to new difficulties all my patient friends who had to learn how to feed me gluten free. Nor will I skip meals in restaurants for this. I mean: I'm B and I'm supposed to keep free of buckwheat AND corn, apart from peanuts and walnuts and mussels AND chicken AND tomatoes AND anything coming from cow milk. I can deal with the rest, but baking without corn bread and buckwheat is going to be a real challenge. Especially since they apparently do NOT trouble me at all. Life is difficult enough already. I'm cutting out on these red flags foods for a couple of months and I'll see how it goes but no way I can tell my friends "uh, apart from no milk and no gluten I'll give you a NEW list of prohibited foods because I know how you love a challenge..." :-D

Does this mean that I can only eat with people that have type O blood? :huh:

My doc suggested I try this diet years ago when the book was first published.  He loved to have his patients try things out and report back to him.  He also like prescribing two different meds for the same issue within our family to see which one worked best. 

 

But I didn't do it.  Instead, I went on a candida and food allergy/intolerance rotational diet that really helped.  Basically, the "Eat Right for Your Blood Type" is like other diets.  Eat simple foods (fruit, veggies and proteins) and cut out junk food.  Also, don't eat the same old things day in and day out!  Hit the Eastern Markets and try some new veggies!

    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
