Is Fibromyalgia Linked to Your Blood Type?

blood type fibromyalgia

Although fibromyalgia has not yet been considered as a type of autoimmune disease, this condition is often associated with similar autoimmune condition like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers are still not sure of what causes the chronic pain condition, although several theories have emerged. One of which links one’s blood type to fibromyalgia. Can your blood type determine if you’re predisposed to this chronic pain condition?


How Can Your Blood Type Relate to Fibromyalgia?

Type O is the most common blood type in the world. According to some experts, fibromyalgia patients with blood type O could see positive responses if they adhere to a wheat-free diet for a prolong period of time. Yet, this does not address the question on whether those who are Type O are more highly susceptible to fibromyalgia.

You may have probably come across several articles and posts on the most recommended fibro diet. While some patients find these diets to be effective for them, others have a different result. The truth of the matter is that there is no concrete cure for fibromyalgia yet. However, making some adjustments to your diet and lifestyle might help in mitigating your symptoms, perhaps a little bit more.


In Conclusion

D’Adamo, the author behind a book studying the link between blood type and fibromyalgia mentioned that blood type is key to understanding the disease. It helps to unlock the door to mysteries of disease and its effects on the health, physical vitality, longevity and emotional strength of a patient. Your blood type can help determine your susceptibility to the disease, the type of foods that you should eat and how often you need to exercise in order to combat the condition. This is because your blood type is a factor in your energy level, your body’s efficiency in burning calories, your emotional response to stress and even your personality.

Despite all of the data gathered, there is not enough proof that certain blood type increases risks of fibromyalgia. However, it is important to note that D’Adamo’s study is somewhat similar to the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In general, the quality of a patient’s blood is a significant feature in Chinese medicines and can help determine the type of treatment needed by the individual. Similarly, your blood type could determine the best diet and lifestyle for fighting your chronic pain.

Nevertheless, his book offers a lot of valid dietary solutions that can help those with fibromyalgia cope with the symptoms, including other diseases similar to fibromyalgia.

    I have A- blood so I don’t agree with this article at all. There is no way that a blood type can be the cause for a disease that’s so difficult to diagnose!!

    I don’t agree with this either, my RHB is Negative. Also there is another theory that using a computer can be link to Fibromyalgia, that is not true either! In my case I was diagnosed with Fibro back in 1993, needless to say, I started using a computer in 2002.

      What I know is what we ate is how we are. I’m doing different kind of research that fibromyalgia is come from in different way, what I know is about 11 reasons. One is from gluten intolerance, what I know from type blood O positive should not eating gluten it because type blood O is high in Uric acid and gluten is part of acid, so if too much gluten can be the mean cause too. This condition is happen with one of my friend but because she can’t resist eating bread and she is suffering of fibromyalgia

    I’m O+, my daughter who has FM is O- has FM. I started symtoms in 1988, dx in 1992. Been on disability ever since. But i worked hard in military and for government Canada for many yrs, and raised 3 kids. One of whom has a very rare lung disease being in CHEO many many hospitalizations. Did u know that trauma, car accidents can bring on FM symptoms.? I heard that FM can be inherited altho not genetic. I have 2 daughters with it. I hope any of my 7 grandchildren dont get it. Also another theory was growing pains in children led to FM later. We shall see!
