Hey there........my question is that we are trying to figure out what our dad's blood type is and since i'm type-o and my mom is type-o does that mean 100% that my dad is type- o too or is there any chance he could be type-A ? Is there anyway a recessive gene can overide a dominate one in the ABO.

Thankyou.

No, and no. My mom is an O and my dad was an A. I'm an A, my sister is an O. I have two girls, one is an A and one is an O, so I am obviously Ao.  If your mom is an O your dad could have been an Oo, Bo or an Ao, but not an AB.

Is he still alive? for about 11$ you can get a test and be sure, no more guessing. If the money is an isue see if he will donate blood.

Some test done in a hospital require a blood typing, like Cardiac Catheterizations. If he ever had one he would have been typed the hospital would have his type on file.

Yeap he's alive but we don't have a good relationship with him as my parents divorced years back so we were guessing about his blood type as he is so much different than myself and my mom and sister as all 3 of us are type-O but weren't sure about him.

My mom, sister and i are also the classic Geno type ''Hunters'' as us 3 are tall and thin boned and thrive in the heat and sun and we tan easily and never burn and thrive on meats and vege's and we love intense excersise (swimmers). My dad is not very tall and very thick bone and hates the sun and he burns in it and he's always loved grains (cereals) and peanuts and he hated any form of exercise (lived in front of the tv) etc..so we thought he might be a type-A.

Anyway we were just curious about it.

Maybe he is a B.. because he likes the tele..

I am just being silly .


A picture of him might help.

Does anyone think you can genotype someone froma photo. I think Peter can ? (just like I know he can eat tofu from the sterile white package )..


We know that Oprah is a Gatherer just from how she looks and a few of the people in the Genotype book are typed just from photos because some of them are dead.
So maybe if you have a good photo of him you can see his leg lengths and head shape??

P.S. I'm an A and I'm rather tall and thin, like the sun, tan easily (but try not to) love exercise ( When I have work it is outside hiking for eight hours + a day) and I cannot stand the "telly".

Andrea, I'm just bored today so I'm responding to pretty much anything with pretty much nonsense myself. I know it's all in fun! I once tried to peg people as to their blood types= the way they look and it just doesn't work!

Os can get lazy & sedentary, too. So he could be an O who eats the wrong things(grains, peanuts). He also could be an A or B as was shared. Just be glad you are an O & enjoy that red meat!

Any blood type can get lazy and eat the wrong foods and after awhile they are so stuck in the avoids they cannot function and they no longer have the ability to hear what their body is telling them it wants.

I don't know any lazy As, I don't think.  All the As I know work way too hard and struggle with balancing work and rest.  And we feel guilty for not working more, but when we do we're too tired to function, so we have to rest.....

Again let me thank everyone who replied as i appreciate it as i asked a serious question as my family were just trying to figure out what our father's blood type was as we haven't seen him in years.

Secondly i'm not sure where ''lazy'' came from as i never mentioned that at all. My dad  that i remember as a kid/teen worked hard all his life in the motel/hotel management field but he hated exercise of any form and found tranquility watching tv or old black and white movies etc...when he wasn't at work. Where as i and my mom and sister who are type O's thrive on intense exercise as we couldn't sit still long enough to watch tv or movies for hours so it had me thinking about what Dr.D has written in that type-A's prefer tranquility like yoga  etc...as we just thought we'd ask the folks on here.
.
Anyway we were just trying to guess his blood type by going the parameters that D has written about type-A's but we'll probably never know.

Take care.

Sounds like my dad..He was an AB+ He loved peanut butter..(like father like daughter) and didn't ever exercise.. and he sat in front of the tv reading his newspaper all the time.   Except, my dad was tall...6'3"

I know that you will leave him as an A but I have an O Gatherer  that is cerebral rather then physical.


On one of our visits with Dr. D.. that is what he called my husband a cerebral O. In other words he was not an excerciser, more of a thinker. He also loves grains, although they are not good for him and peanut butter, it took a long time to convince him not to eat that.



Excercise tolerance is only one piece of the puzzle as is food preference.
No photos of him?

I don't get it, why can't he be an AB?  

If you got your Mom's O, how would that prove anything about what your Dad might be?

I got both My Mom and my Dad's blood type.  But my sister only got my Dad's.  An AB can marry an O and have kids.  I thought it was the offspring either has one or the other, or in my case, both.

Since an O is recessive you must receive an O allele from both parents for a child to have an O blood type.

If one parent is an AB that parent cannot contribute an O allele. This makes an O child not possible.

A person that has an O allele and an A allele will be blood type A since A is dominant and O is recessive.

A person that has an O allele and a B allele will be blood type B since B is dominant and O is recessive.





If you know the mother is an O and a child is an O. The father cannot be AB, since an AB father and an O mother can only have children of type A or Type B.
