I found this old thread and found it to be interesting....donated blood today and I got to thinking about blood types and eating.  Never thought that it would matter but it makes sense.  So, I went ahead and the totals for the thread as it was up to this point...

Sjogren's  Blood Statistics for our board - not scientific

31 replies (including me - I'm A+)

A   2       6%
A+   11  35%
AB+ 3    10%
B  1        3%
B- 1        3%
B+ 2       6%
O 7        23%
O+ 4      13%

I think it would be interesting to know out of the different blood types, who has confirmed diagnosis based on blood work and tests?  For example, I'm A+ and cannot get a diagnosis from blood work.
Plaquenil (generic), vitamin D, Amitriptyline, Citalopram

In order to place this in context, you have to remember that the distribution of blood types isn't equal, and the proportions vary around the world, making it difficult to see if certain types are more commonly found in certain disease processes.

The statistics I have at hand are for Canada (no surprise) but the breakdown is:
A-__6%
A+__36%
B-___1.4%
B+__7.6%
AB-__0.5%
AB+__2.5%
O-___7%
O+___39%

I'm A+, and have high levels of almost all AI antibodies with the exception of dsDNA, and highly positive lip and lymph node biopsies.

I'm sorry but I find this whole thing silly.

Your body makes so many important proteins in order to function -enzymes, hormones, and immune molecules etc. and to only focus on a incredibly tiny number that determine your blood group doesn't make any scientific sense. It is only of importance when you need a blood transfusion.

AB+ Here.  There do seem to be a slight excess of AB+s here, though. Sharon
