Take the next step in understanding your genetic individuality through cutting-edge DNA analysis—now with our updated Secretor Status Collection kit with new lab, improved collection tubes, instructions and redesigned packaging for determining your secretor status.
You may already know your blood type, but did you know that some people secrete their blood type antigen into other body fluids such as saliva and tears? Scientists have determined that your secretor status - secretor or non-secretor - plays a profound role in your health. Knowing your secretor type empowers you to further refine your Blood Type Diet and take strategic control of your own wellness and lifestyle choices.
In his book, Live Right for Your Type, Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo discusses the critical role that your secretor type plays in your health. This vital piece of information is just as essential as your family history when refining your Blood Type Diet, determining your GenoType, or one-of-a-kind SWAMI XP profile.
These* are some of the areas controlled or influenced by your secretor status:
- the degree to which foreign bacteria invade the system
- the adherence of lectins and other blood type-sensitive structures in food to your digestive tissue
- syndrome X or Insulin Resistance Syndrome
- the balance of intestinal bacteria
- predicting the relevance of tumor markers for diagnosing cancer
- blood-clotting capabilities
*Excerpted from Dr. Peter D'Adamo's Live Right for Your Type book (pg. 8). See the full list and dive deeper into how your secretor status influences your health.
Our single-use Secretor Status Collection Kit uses the latest in Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping to determine your FUT2 secretor status (secretor or non-secretor). Simply swipe the cotton swabs provided in the test kit along the inside of your cheek as directed. Be sure to carefully follow steps in the detailed instructions before sending out your specimen— and when you ship please do keep the tracking number for your records. With this updated kit from Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory, we've been able to reduce results time frame from 21 business days for lab processing to 10 (from date of receipt by lab).
“I am very excited about our new genomic-based secretor test. I’ve worked closely with Diagnostic Solutions Laboratories on a variety of clinical and professional genomic panels and am convinced that they are the premier genomic reporting service.” - Dr. Peter D’Adamo
