Questions About The Diets

Diet and Pregnancy


QUESTION

What impact does the blood type diet have on the developing fetus during pregnancy? I am pregnant (five months) with my first child and am type A. My husband is type O. If I follow the type A diet, and the baby happens to be type O like my husband, would it have any adverse effects on the baby? I am also concerned about any adverse effects of a low-protein diet during pregnancy. My mother has been on the type O diet for two months now, and has had wonderful results. I would also like to benefit from the diet that is right for my type, but am concerned about my baby.


ANSWER

Under situations of sickness, such as frequent miscarriage or whatever, the appropriate diet for the mother has worked wonderfully. We have had many patients as mothers who have followed the diet with great success. To my knowledge, the diet has resulted in no problems or reactions in these situations. Of course, everyone is different, and you might want to bring the diet to your obstetrician's attention if there are any other health problems. There should be no reactions should you conceive a type O child. This is true for a number of reasons. First the fetus is to some degree "immunologically priviledged". Second, type A does no normally react to O tissue. For example, if you are type A, you could receive type O blood. Sometimes, however, type O mothers can have a problem with B and A children.




The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
