I am a RD who uses the blood type diet extensively in my practice.  I have noticed an interesting observation that I was hoping someone would be willing to comment on.  When working with people I am usually adept at "guessing" their blood type based on personality traits.  However, when I am wrong, it is almost always on the type A's who are behaving like type O's. SO...I did some further sleuthing and asked these individuals to find out the blood type of their parents and siblings.  What I have discovered is 100% of the A's I mistake for Os have one parent or sibling who is blood type O!  Is there such a thing as an AO blood type? and if so, does that change the dietary recommendations to be part A and part O much like the ABs?
I plan on doing a presentation on blood type diets for a business in the next week and would love to know if my theory has any merit.  
THANK YOU!

I have made that mistake too!  There are some folks who are strong willed, extroverted, & very productive. They seemed least like A than the other types, but they were A!
Then with the genotype of Warrior, it explains that.

According to the Eat Right and Live Right books, there is no Type AO, but according to The Genotype Diet book, there are differences among all of the blood types.  They are two related but different diet systems so you may want to check out the differences.  In order to more fully individualize the personal diet more than is possible using tables in a book, Dr. D'Adamo developed the SWAMI (Genotype and Xpress) software.  The Genotype is used by trained practitioners and Xpress is used by individuals to get their specific diet printout.

Dr. D'Adamo's father Dr. James D'Adamo in his book "just an ounce of preention is worth a pound of cure"  recognises the influence of the parent blood group.  
I imagine the Genotype/Swami pick up on these differences in a different way.

I have his book ,too, Lin!  
Yes, he does recognize and I can tell you that, for me, there is something to the Ao combo...and not genotype warrior. I am a teacher/explorer...and my swami says I have a reactive world view! Sooooo true!!!! Most teachers are receptive!
My dad is an O- Hunter/explorer. My mom is an A+ explorer.
Many of my family members are O's, as are many friends.
Believe me when I tell you that I identify with A personality traits and teachers perspective BUT ....I find myself thinking and behaving like an O much of the time!!!

Cajun,
It's an interesting book.
And very interesting how you relate to both your parents blood types.
I am teacher/explorer too, but receptive.  My mother is A/B blood group and Dad A.
That is interesting how your Dad's O is expressed in you....I'm curious how thinking and behaving like an O is?

Like your Paul McCartney quote!

A person inherits a blood type allele from each parent.

If a child inherits an A allele from both parents, than the child has a genotype of AA. Their blood type is A.

If a child inherits an A allele from one parent and an O allele from the other, than the child has a genotype of Ao. Their blood type is A.  This is because is because A is dominant.  O is a recessive trait. The o allele is only expressed when their is no dominant allele (A or B).


Simple explanation:

Lin,
My father, husband, son and best friend are all O's and each obviously unique.
But, there are a few traits they have in common such as; being leaders,
wanting to control their environment, and being honestly outspoken. These are especially true of my dad including thinking he is right 99 percent of the time; a trait I share with him...
Interestingly, (or not ) I am physically built like my dad, not my mom, have a blend of their coloring, enjoy the same foods/ activities/ studies/ music as my dad, not my mom.

My husband and I are both type A's. We have four children... all are A's except one. Our firstborn daughter is an O. My father is an O, and my husbands father is an O... So many people have told me that this is impossible that she could be an O... I feel she has characteristics of an AO. I also feel to some extent that my husband and I could fall into an AO category.

Cajun, Very interesting that leadership, control  and outspoken.  We have some "O"'s in my husband's family and I can see those qualities in them also.
I do think that interesting about you being physically like your Dad, as each of the types do have particular builds.  My sister and I have extremely similar body types just like our Father. He was A, she is A/B as is our mother.

LA1980, Those people don't understand about carrying the recessive blood group, for you and your spouse carrying recessive "O" and the odds of you having a child with O blood group was 1 in 4, and that's exactly what you did!

Seraffa,  that's pretty cute about the in vitro accidents and you being an explorer too!
