Blood group A is defined by a terminal α-1,3-linked N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc).

http://web.expasy.org/spotlight/back_issues/sptlt098.shtml


Impact of: Alpha-N-acetyl galactosaminidase (alpha-NaGalase) on that blood type?

"alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase blood group A2 degrading enzyme..."

http://www.brenda-enzymes.org/php/result_flat.php4?ecno=3.2.1.49

A2's more at "risk"?

http://www.biotype.net/diets/typeA2.htm

(The "egg allergy" connection? One of Bb's lipoproteins is phosphatidylcholine. PMID: 8157583)

To eat or not to eat...

"The results suggest that administration of egg phosphatidylcholine to mice with dementia increases brain acetylcholine concentration and improves memory."

http://www.iowaegg.org/egg_nutrition/eggs_come_full_circle.asp


PLA2 looks to impact PC -> lyso PC...

Alky-lysophospholipids (ALP) are synthetic analogues of lysophosphatidylcholines (LPC), also called lysolecithins.

Wikipedia (for more on ALP...promising).

You might want to read up on the blood type diet. There are protocols for each blood type in relation to illness. We are all individuals. After all, not all lyme remedies work on everyone.

My husband and I both have Lyme and I am blood type A and he is B. I am way sicker than he is.

How can I find out my blood type? Will I have to get tested or would a dr. who did blood work for me in the past know?

That's her MO. Puke out a bunch of stuff that causes everyone confusion. It just frustrates me.

Everyone knows you are brilliant, Marnie. Dumb it down for us, okay?

From what I could read--some of the sites would not open properly for me. There are of course the four basic blood types--A, B, AB, and O. There are also subtypes--example A1 and A2. Those with A2 blood have more allergic reactions to dairy, eggs, and gluten than the A1 subtype. Thus--I assume that people with A2 blood, then, might, be more predisposed to autoimmune diseases.

Blood typing is easy to do and I know I am blood type A, but I don't know if I am A1 or A2. However, I don't do well with lots of dairy or eggs and I am gluten free as I have the celiac genes.

Happy New Year Marnie and everyone on lymenet.

I think I read somewhere that more people in the world have blood type A .

So if that's true, it stands to reason more people with Lyme will be blood type A, too.


That said, my husband has picked numerous ticks off of him throughout his life, he's blood type O...and is never sick.


So who knows.

Has anyone here tried the blood type diet? If so, do you feel better on it?

I am blood type a - don't know about the subtype. I tried the test but it was so close between A1 & A2 that I didn't know which it was.

I bought the regular blood type diet book (old one) but I find many things I'm allergic to on the list of approved foods.

I also bought the cook book hoping for help in what to cook. Same problem - many, many allergens used which are supposed to be "approved" foods for me.

Dx with Lyme & homozygous for MTHFR. Antibiotics & nutritional IV's didn't help.

I have been on the geno type diet, which is the next generation of the blood type diet for 9 months.

I feel much better on it. I did get the swami software that goes with the geno type diet that allows you to put your health information into the software. Based on that, it comes up with beneficial foods to boost the immune system.

I learned a lot about what makes my body feel better and what makes me gain weight. Lyme doctor loves the diet. I am am A+. On the geno type diet it puts me into the "Teacher" profile. Some A's should be vegetarian but I am one who is allowed meat proteins based on my health information.

I feel that it is instrumental in my treatment for Lyme.

I might also say that many of the beneficial foods on my list, I am not able to eat yet. That is the Lyme affecting the GI tract. As time goes on, and my stomach gets better, I have been able to add some foods back in.

All this healing takes time. Well worth reading up on it if you are interested.

I had been sick for years and following the B blood type diet. I'm sure it helped some but when I switched to the Geno type diet (same Dr who created the blood type diet)about 1 1/2 years ago I started herxing within 3 months. Within a year I was herxing enormously. I can only imagine that my immune system started working again. This is what got me to a LLMD and got diagnosed for Lyme Disease. I got a swami from the website which refines the diet even further. I think it really helps me but will not cure me by itself. It's a lot of work but I find it really worth while.

I would have been much sicker if I hadn't found the Geno type diet. It has really saved me.
