Ok, I just talked with my mother. She is A+ and my dad is O+. She said she didn't know what type I was but thought I might be O+.

Can I figure it out from this info or do I need to get a test to figure it out?

Thanks,
Mike

LOL Well thanks, I guess it turns out I'm either A+ or O+. :) Guess I gotta get a blood test to find out for sure.

Hi Mike. You still need to be tested to learn your blood type. Your mom's alleles, for type A, can be either AA or AO. In addition her Rh factor can be either +/+ or +/-. People with type O, like your dad, have only the OO allele. But they can still have both Rh possibilities. Confusing! Takes me back to Gregor Mendel and those darn pea experiments!

Love,
Carrie

AB+/CC, Red Cross never askes for my blood! I am a donor but haven't donated in a long time. Most of my blood goes for Thyroid testing!

I am so fanatical about knowing everything I can about every aspect of my body, and was shocked and horrified to realize that I don't KNOW what type of blood I have!!!! But I'm certainly glad to know I'm in good company - I figured I must have been the only one to not know something this important, and I guess I should consider myself lucky that I haven't had the need to know. I wonder if that's something my GP has in his chart - maybe I should call and ask him?

Hi Sue. Maybe the next time you have to give blood for tests you also can ask to have your blood type done. I think it's a good thing to know.

I like your new avatar! It's so nice to be able to put a face with a name!

Love,
Carrie

Yes, Carrie, it IS nice to be able to put a face with a name, so let's get that butterfly off of your avatar and see who Carrie is! Laughing

And you can't use the excuse that you don't have a picture.... as you can see, mine is my driver's license, with the crest and seal going across it and all! Makes my mouth look distorted, but what the heck - you get the general idea.

Hi Mike. Glad you now know your blood type. Good move! And unlike the statistical rarity of MC, you are in the majority with your O+ blood.

Love,
Carrie

I'm A+ and have LC and quite possibly full-blown celiac (?) as well as casein intolerance. Haven't been tested for anything else yet...

Oops, I do not know.

I think I will have to ask it on my next blood test.

I'm O+ and donated almost 6 gallons of blood before I could no longer be a donor due to meds/health problems. Never be afraid to go to The Red Cross or United Blood Service and try to donate, just be HONEST when it comes time to answer the questions as if you don't qualify, you won't be able to donate. First you will be given paperwork to read and if you decide not to donate, you can walk out no questions asked. If you still want to donate and still qualify, you will go into a private cubical where a small finger prick will happen to check your iron. If your iron is OK, the tech will continue with the screening asking you private questions. It is here you MUST be honest! If your uncomfortable at anytime, please say you no longer wish to donate instead of lying and donating anyway and possibly tainting the Nations' blood supply. After your short interview, you will still be given the chance to walk away. if you pass all of the questions, you will then donate. There are many screening in place to test the blood that has been donated, but it all starts with the donor. You don't need to know your blood type to donate, they will figure that out, you need your ID and you need to know your meds and medical history. With all of our military needing blood, it is a great thing to do! you also never know if you will need blood yourself someday and let's hope if you do, there was someone willing to donate for you. I actually felt physically better after my donations.

Just looking around, and I don't see any other 0- blood types. Interesting. I was curious when Entero Lab asked for my blood type. Seems like plenty are in the O category, though.

Hmmmm.... The poll says there are 3. One of them is probably you which would leave 2 more. I don't think you are alone. Very Happy
