Just a curious question. If I married and had kids with another O, would they be less likely to be healthy than if I had married an A or a B? Also would they without a doubt be O as well, or could they possibly turn out a different type?

It is unlikely I would get along with another O, however. But having all O's in the family would make things a lot easier, food wise.

Evan-I would think it would all depend on how healthy each of you are and, of course, the gene thing.

And...what's wrong with another O?   Oops sorry...you did say it was you that could not get along with another O.

Well, it's just a guess. I don't really know anybody elses blood types, because they don't follow the diet. So who knows? Do you have a good relationship with another O? I kinda thought it was like personality types...you know: two extroverts won't get along very well, and two introverts won't get along very well. Although, I've noticed I have a more B type personality.

I guess it's impossible to determine some of this stuff just from blood type.

I wish you could get your genes analyzed and from that determine the possible genes of any kids. I wouldn't want to have deformed or disabled kids because I married the wrong person.

Not necessarily. Kids inherit their father's blood type or father's mother's blood type. It's called 'revenge of the grandma' or something to that effect.

but then she went for fatty acids, B-vits, and a bit of magnesium and all went fine ...sooo what's about that bloody Ritalin...huh we are going to give it to the teacher....and won't be shy, I am waiting until she/he has taken it....on his/her  own

Yep my situation: I´m a Bo - my ex boyfriend Ao- and we had a tough OO kid very surprised- I had forgot about the revenge.....
Grandmothers revenge- in this case it was both the grandmothers who was O´s ...

My first husband is an O and our children are Os.  As near as I can tell our daughter is an O secretor and our son is a non-secretor.  I am introverted, and he is extroverted, our children are in between.  We are all pretty healty, no bone breaks on either side of the family.  His mother just died at age 91 despite being a life-long smoker and having breast cancer in her fifties.  My parents are alive at 82 and 87.  It certainly is easier to deal with a one blood type household, especially if you are used to eating as an O.  I find it much harder to sense what is helpful for my second husband, an A.  Suzanne's blogs help with that.

Much more important would be flexibility and openness to doing things differently.  I watch some good friends who are have a mixed household.  They tend toward vegetarian menus since the wife is an A.  The O husband eats meat outside of the home.  While the wife is quite slender, the husband is putting on a little weight with what is served at home.

As for friends who do not follow the diet, often you can tell their blood type from what they are eating, especially if they seem healthy and happy. Then there are people like my daughter.  She would like to be a vegetarian for philosophical reasons, but after finding that she could not function well on that diet she reluctantly added chicken and fish to her diet.  She knows that beef would be better for her, but can't do it yet.  She might do it for a healthy pregnancy.

If you as an O marry another O, there is no doubt that you will have O children...  O is the recessive, so there can't be any A or B in the mix.  I think the children of any blood type can be healthy, we as parents just need to feed them correctly...

The Secretor status may have a larger influence on a child's health than the blood type...  Non-Secretor is the recessive, so it may be lurking and come out in children.

Well, if you married another O, all of your kids would be Os.  If you married an AB, your kids could be A or B.  If you married an A, your kids could be A or O.  And lastly, if you married a B, your kids could be B or O.  
I can't really say if any of those combinations would be worse than the others, they all have the plusses and minuses!

As we learned at the 2007 IfHI conference that the most important time is correct nutrition and good health for the women before she becomes pregnant. The importance or impact of nutrition decreases from that point on for the offspring.

Isa, I do not really believe in ADD either...society (their teachers) are the ones that label them and complain to parents (me) about their behavior.  

My 17yo is such a high energy 'O' and found upper high school sitting at a desk & studying not for him. So at 16yrs I ended up taking him out of school and getting him into an apprenticeship  (electrician) ... he just loves to be DOING something!

As a male type O you really don't have to worry about this, since a type O is a universal donor.

However, a type O woman should think about this and if she marries a blood type incompatible man she should reduce the chance or amount of a hostile environment her immune system might produce during conception and development by following the BTD.

Madl... check out the link below. My dear friend's husband began a foundation years ago in Tucson addressing this very issue... that "toughy" children have nothing wrong with them. He wrote a book entitled "Transforming the Difficult Child" which is really about transforming the adults in their lives to relate to them in ways that meet their needs... rather than medicating them into compliance.

My husband is a O ,so I do see why you say two O's would be a challenge! I am a AB our children are B,AB,B and all are wonderful healthy BTD little people, now that I got the hang of cooking for 3 different types. I think once you understand the personality of the different types you can appreciate them more. I had to make my O husband re-read the personality chapters in the BTD book since us B's and AB's make him want to scream.Maybe another O would be a good thing!

My ex is an AB and my kids are both As.  My older one was diagnosed as ADD in kindergarten.  He's 32 on Sat.  but he had a tough time on and off in school.  He was in a class for very bright children but he really did have trouble attending to the work.  He was in and out of college programs and never did finish his degree and now he's working for a company that doesn hydraulics.  He loves it because he's out on the road alot doing repairs.  He also custom builds power units....varies from day to day.   The only thing that calmed him down was his music.  He's been a rock musician since about 15, writes, plays lead guitar and lots of other instruments that he taught himself to play.  I always had a hard time getting him to do his schoolwork but now he reads etc.   I think you are right Isa in saying that schools just don't know how to deal with kids different learning styles.  I had a core evaluation done when he was in 3rd grade and he was reading then at 8th grade level.  He also had a high school math teacher that told me that he found his own way to get to the answers in her class.  She was fine with that but some other math teachers weren't so creative.

Ok, new to this forum and interested in accessing whether my children could be anything other than 'o'. Hence I read this thread (although still confused after reading thread!)!

So here it goes, my wife and I are both 'o' does that mean our children are 'o' too?

Quote from earlier in forum... 'O's do not carry any recessive blood type genes All O's are Oo'

So if my wife and I are both 'Oo', our children must be 'O'?

Only answer if you really k'o'

If the father of your children is type O and you are type AB, then you can not have a type AB child.

You can only have type B and type A children in that case.

Jane, I'm glad to hear that your A son, with his creative learning style has found his place in the world and is happy in his job.My O son (15) sounds a lot like him. He too is very smart, and musical. He has A's in all of his accelerated classes however in his one "regular" class he had a D! He was B-O-R-E-D!!!! I called the teacher and asked her to challenge him, and sure enough, up went his grade. I have since heard from older kids that had her, that she was "a lousey teacher". I think a lot of the kids that are labeled ADD, have teachers that treat them all the same, and are burnt out and just going through the motions of teaching.  

Just recently, his Spanish teacher said to him "have you ever been tested for ADD? My brother wasn't diagnosed until he was 25". I thought that comment was a bit out of line, because I could tell it kind of bothered my son. He said to me, "I don't want to be tested, because then I might be inclined to use my diagnosis as a crutch." I'm sure my son, being musical, was probably jiggling his leg at his desk, or tapping his pencil to some tune in his head, to cause the teacher to make this comment.  In other words, he was being a BOY!  I do notice, that he gets more annoying if he eats foods with wheat or corn syrup!

Opps, back to the thread, I am an A, married to an O with two O kids.  I did have trouble conceiving, but fertility pills worked! I don't know if the A/O mix had anything to do with our conception problems. I was not "eating right" back then.

An A women shouldn't have trouble with an O husband, but the reverse could.

Remember that an O is a universal blood type donor because no other types make an antibody against the type O "antigen".

Really interesting point. Could you elaborate on it? I get the gist from your post that you're saying following the BTD well might/should keep the immune system from being as hostile as it might be otherwise. (For instance, are you saying an rh negative mom who's NOT following the diet might more readily - at least theoretically - generate the kind of antibodies that rh negative women are given Rhogam shots to prevent?)

What's your view of any potential risks of Rhogam shots to rh negative mothers, thimerosal/mercury issues aside? (I know it's claimed there are no issues, but I doubt it's been sufficiently studied for the blanket safety claims to really be all that trustworthy.)

[Just to be clear here, I'm well aware of the risk reduction Rhogam is believed to provide for an Rh positive fetus. I'm asking only about the mother's health.]

As an adjunct question, say a mother who hasn't had a Rhogam shot during pregnancy becomes sensitized during the birth of her first child, due to blood mixing at that time. If she plans to have no children, do you consider the antibodies she then produces to pose any immunological or other drawbacks for her?

Quoted Text
Sensitisation to the Rhesus blood group, which includes the antigens C, c, D, d, E and e, can happen before or during birth, especially with Rhesus D, if the mother is Rhesus negative and her baby is Rhesus positive.

Individuals with blood group O Rhesus negative are considered universal donors, as their red cells do not carry antigens to A, B or D. Consequently O negative blood can generally be transfused to individuals of any blood group.

Quoted from lola


Indeed, it can happen with any trauma that mixes the blood systems - including amniocentesis. However, there's debate about whether Rhogam should be given prophylactically to pregnant mothers as most of the time the trauma that mixes the blood systems (if it does) is the birth itself. (Talking about first births here.)

Ran across an interesting stat:

Overall, 16% of Rh-negative women will become sensitized after their first pregnancy if not given Rhogam.
ABO incompatibility reduces this risk to 4-5%.[5]
The reduced risk of Rh sensitization with ABO incompatibility may result from the rapid clearance of incompatible red cells thus reducing the overall exposure to D antigen.

It is this very reason why my gyny tried everything else to not let me have a blood transfusion after the birth of my first baby when having post natal bleeding ... in case the O- had some antibodies   and put future babies at risk (treated with fluid iron drips and oxytocin hormone drips - didn't do much for the fatigue  though

Good to know. Did you not have Rhogam during pregnancy or afterward? (Also, like what decade was this?) Sounds like you had an on-the-ball OBGYN.

Had a shot within 48 hours ... a scary situation as placenta came away before birth and then uterus would not contract hence profuse bleeding during & after.  This was back in 1980

how can 2 O's be a challenge? if you're both O, then you have similar personality characteristics. i don't get it.

I see no reason that two O's would be concerned with having unhealthy children!!!!! O is a very hardy type, I'll have you know...been around long enough, and will be for quite awhile! (hail the O!)

Both my wife (Pip) and I are "O" negative secretors, we have three children.

First one is "O" negative secretor male.

Second one is "A" positive secretor Male.

Third one is "O" negative secretor female.

We were unaware of the significance of this until we learned about the BTD!  

How many of you can explain how this happens?  John.

I don't have the research at my fingertips now, but recall reading something about how the incidence of either RH negatives or type O RH negatives (I forget which) was actually higher than basic genetic statistical likelihoods would suggest - that is, there are things going on during pregnancy that foster survival or selection of the O- or just - types quite a bit more than would be expected (despite type incompatibilities between mother and father etc.). In other words, as-yet not fully explained hardiness. (I think this was probably about O- )

Well, the answer is: "ADOPTION"

How do you think that the poor wee "A" got on, living in a family full of "O's" and nobody having a clue about the difference that blood group makes!

Despite what we didn't know then but we do know now, our wee (6ft-1 x a yard across the shoulders) boy has grown into a magnificent man, husband to a lovely woman (also an adopted child) and father to two beautiful kids and they are all "O's" too!

Adoption has been very kind to us.   Cheers John.

Say, anyone who's decent at statistics - what are the odds of John (an O-) serendipitously meeting and marrying another O- (as his wife indeed is) in the first place?

Well, in New Zealand it is probably the reverse.

It is in our immediate family anyway!

Maybe that's why we are considered (by some) to be such an aggressive nation!    John.

Well, it's just a guess. I don't really know anybody elses blood types, because they don't follow the diet. So who knows? Do you have a good relationship with another O?

This may be just a coincidence, but I have noticed, since starting the BTD and becoming interested in all things blood type-related, that almost all of my "BFFs", i.e., closest friends, are Type A.  I'm talking, my best friend from high school, one of my best friends from college, one of my dearest friends ever, ever, EVER from childhood, etc.  It seems if I ask a BFF their blood type and they know it, it's A.  A, A, A!  BFFs = blood type A in my life, not sure why.  Again, could just be coincidence, there are a lot of A's out and about.

Exactly.

wheat laden kids with no initiative is what they aim to have inside classrooms.  son is now in med school.......guess he wasn t the monster they wanted all to believe he was.

Don't even get me started on the school system!  Too late to get to a designated hurricane shelter at this point, people.  Just hunker down in an internal room at this point until Hurricane Edna blows over.

I was once having drinks with a couple of like-minded acquaintances. We talked about how all had pretty much left small/midsize towns and split for the big city (or 'fortunes elsewhere') as young and independent adults. Then we got around to discussing blood types and all three of us, from different areas, etc., were O negative.

Here is the thing about me that the world needs to know.  I am ...well, "mild-mannered" isn't the phrase *lol*, but I'm basically one who wants everyone to like me and wants us all to hold hands and sing kumbaya 'round the campfire at the end of the day.

HOWEVER, there are two things in this world that will result in me GOING COMMANDO on someone:

1.  Someone hurting a child

2.  Someone hurting an animal

Clear a path, people.

kuddos .....

Almost got myself shredded once at the tender age of 17.  My younger sister and I were with our parents on our last family vakay (I left for collage in the fall, this was summer, we were about to go on an Alaskan cruise departing from SF, CA, but we were first in LA, CA, my place of birth--wuu HUUUU, so coolio).  Picture it:  Disneyland.  Fourth of July.  Memo to any fellow INFJs out there:  Do NOT go to Disneyland on the Fourth of July.  Extreme crowds.

Anyway, I don't know where my parents had wandered off to, but my sister and I somehow were weaving through the crowds by our lonesome when what to our wondering (and horrified) eyes did appear but a BEE-OTCH actually pulling her little boy along by his EAR.  I didn't know people actually did that!  Anyway, see, this is when fools like Edna rush in.  I'm telling you, animals and children.  So I go BARRELLING over and basically told this adult and total stranger to RELEASE the child and do it NOW!  Well, she gave me a look that, if looks could kill, but then somehow the crush of the crowd carried my sister and I off on the crest of a giant crowd tsunami.   My sister was like, omg, I can't believe you did that.  I was like, omg, neither can I.  Then, HOURS later, the two women (who were also apparently sisters) appeared blocking our path and the sister of the ear-dragging one says "Nobody talks like that to my sister!", at which point my little sister screams out "RUN!" and we both plowed down a slew of people to get away from those two loons.  It was terrible because then I wondered if the mom got extra mad and took it out even more on the little 'un.

Another time, this vet tech mishandled my cat, who happened to be one of the easiest, sweetest animals to handle on earth.  She not only manhandled her and then screwed up administering a vaccine, but she then started cussing her out.  Well.  Next thing I knew, unbeknownst to myself, I was flying out of the exam room, INTO another exam room where the vet was, and DEMANDING this person's head on a platter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Totally UN-me.  That vet tech was no longer there next time I was.  And, p.s., turns out that the vet herself was a total spaz, so a while later I figured out to blow that clambake altogether.  But not before BURSTING in on that exam room and giving the vet what for re THAT VET TECH IS NEVER TO TOUCH MINI AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No.  Do not allow me near anyone hurting a kid or an animal because I cannot be responsible for my actions.  I can only stand helplessly by and watch myself doing things that I can't even imagine myself doing!

If the father of your children is type O and you are type AB, then you can not have a type AB child.

You can only have type B and type A children in that case.



The AB is from my first marriage.
