BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  Inheritance of secretor status question.
Posted by: Heidi, Thursday, July 31, 2008, 3:21pm
Hello everyone. Just this week my husband typed his blood and he is not the B+ he thought, but rather an A+ which makes cooking at our house sooo much easier.  ;D

I would like to find out secretor status for him and our daughters as well. If we start with DH and he turns out to be a non-secretor would we still need to test the kids or would they automatically be nonnies as well?

wow, it's amazing how many people aren't the b/t they think they are!  Makes me wonder if I should check mine but since I've had like 7 operations, shouldn't they be sure I'm an O? they have to know right? especially w/ my liver resection. we had blood from me and my brother standing by. ????????

But YAY!!! for you that you are both A!!! (clap)

If both of you are nonnies, then both kids are!!

If he secretes, then either,both or neither will secrete.

Oh...and if the twins are identical,they'll both be the same.

Thanks for the quick help! I'll head over and order a test for DH and see where that leads. The girls will both need testing if Dad is a secretor as they are not identical (even though most folks think they are :P ).

IB, I have no idea why he always thought he was a "B". He can't remember having been told his bloodtype, even though he has had surgery. It's nice to know that all the years of me feeding him a fairly "A" compliant diet have done him more good then harm  ;)

I think you can safely assume you are an O  ;). I've been typed several times. By my OB clinic and then at the hospital as well. The kids were typed at birth because of my RH- status. So I've just trusted that it was correct.

What is DH?  I see a lot of abbreviations on the boards that I dont know what they are.  Getting dumb in my old age I guess  ::)
