Has anyone heard of the link between type O blood type and Celiac? A friend was told by a doctor that since she had type O blood, a gluten free diet might help her. Any news?
From a post by Mother of Jibril in an earlier thread:
"....according the American Red Cross, here's the prevalence of each blood type in the US population:
O pos - 38%
O neg - 7%
A pos - 34%
A neg - 6%
B pos - 9%
B neg - 2%
AB pos - 3%
AB neg -1%"
O+ is the most common type.
Please understand that there is absolutely NO clinical research that proves that this diet is valid.
The Blood Type diet was developed by a naturopath named Peter DíAdamo. This guy is NOT a medical doctor...he has a doctorate in naturopathy. His book, Eat Right For Your Blood Type, says the key to weight loss lies in a humanís blood type.
Which is absolutely ridiculous, if you ask me. You might as well base your diet on your eye color.
Don't get mad at me now!
I have A negative blood, and I have celiac disease. I do best on a low carb diet. I know this because I've tried literally everything. I know what D'Adamo recommends that I eat based on my blood type and it would NOT be good for me to follow his diet.
OK....that's my rant, and my 2 cents worth. I just don't want to see people get confused with stuff like the blood type diet.
