I've been reading about the Eat Right For Your Blood-type diet and found the following on their forum.
Groups A and O have a higher incidence of osteoporosis. |
Depression and Osteoporosis can both be caused by digestive trouble and intolerances. The intestines are responsible for so much: production of most neurotransmitters as well as the obvious mineral/vitamin absorption duties.
Many cases of osteoporosis respond well to a gluten free diet, even after celiac disease has been ruled out.
Blood and urine samples revealed that the depressed women had overactive immune systems, producing too many chemicals which promote inflammation, and not enough that keep it in check.
One of these chemicals - a protein called IL-6 - is known to promote bone loss.
My disease, systemic mastocytosis, causes the too many mast cells to degranulate - releasing interleukin's (IL-6), heparin, histamine and more.
This could also be the issue for those with significant allergies.
I would be curious to know if most of those with bad DEXA scores have allergies, stomach issues, and/or type A or O blood.....
