Blood Type

Recommended Posts

I posted earlier but I'm O+ with med brown hair and green eyes. My youngest son is O+ also with medium brown hair and dark brown eyes. My oldest son is A+ light brown hair and the deepest blue eyes you ever saw. My dad and brother(whom I think have celiac) have B+. They were both toe heads when they were little and their hair eventually turned light brown. They have hazel eyes. As for my dad, brother and I mostly german/european decent with a touch of native american(my great grandmother was half). As for my boys, they have what I have plus from their dad's father's side is pretty much all irish decent and some native american(my husband's grandfather was half). From their dad's mother's side I know that they were german Jews that emmigrated to the US.

A+ here! Sounds like I am reporting a grade!! Oddly enough I have looked at my blood type diet, Swedish decent, and the foods I have been forced to eat to get my vits levels where they need to be are the exact foods on the blood type diet and the diet of the Swedish.....lots of fish!

I am A negative. Blonde hair, blue eyes, maternal grandparents were from Denmark and paternal grandparents were from Norway so I'm about as Scandinavian as I can get.

My celiac daughter is also A negative, blonde hair, blue eyes, 3/4 Scandinavian and 1/4 Heinz 57. :lol:

I've never given a thought to checking into the blood type diet.

OK, I forgot to give my background and coloring. I have grey hair that used to be brown, blue/grey eyes, and I am German, English, Polish, and Lakota Sioux. (What a combination!)

O+, Hispanic with 1/8 Irish, Brown hair with red and blond mixed in (and some white now). My mother was a natural red. Eyes are brown. Undocumented, but very likely some native american from my fathers side.

0+, CMV-. Light brown hair, blue eyes. Grandfather of Irish descent and mom's side has Danish roots.

If you don't know what CMV negative is, I have never been exposed to the Cytomegalovirus, a flu-like virus most people are exposed to at some point. CMV can be dangerous to individuals with weakened immune systems, newborns and people undergoing organ transplants. For these individuals, having a blood donor who is CMV- (someone who has never been exposed to cytomegalovirus) is very important.

I used to donate a lot, but thanks to gluten (I know this now), my pulse and blood pressure got too high to donate. Getting off gluten has it back where it needs to be and I can donate again.

I think we are all over the place with blood types!

I'm 0+. Reddish brown hair & freckles! No one asks where my ancestors come from, they just assume Irish or Scottish. Actually, only about 25% Irish, mostly German and some shady areas we are not sure of.

I'm B+, black hair, Brazilian and Italian descent.

So far i've been the only one diagnosed in my family but I suspect people on both my mothers and father's side could be celiac.

I'll play, since it was the blood-type diet that had me eating spelt and rye and very occasionally wheat for several years when I should have been gluten-free. :angry:

O+ American (Scottish and Canadian French and who knows what else).

    Chances are if you have lumps on your body for years and the Dr. isn't concerned they're probably not lymph nodes. Chronically swollen lymph nodes would be something every Dr. would be concerned with.  Chances are you just have cysts ...
    It's different  for everyone, it can be a month or maybe a year. Most probably within a few months. This is assuming the symptoms are in fact related to gluten, which they may not be. 
    Hi Laura I'm so pleased you found answers.  This is very encouraging.  Seven years on from my own diagnosis I wish I could have some vitamin and mineral screening, I'm sure I'm still deficient. Cristiana
