Different Blood Types From Parents?
hello doctor, I want to ask, this is really bothering my mind, mother’s blood type B, father’s blood type O, just this morning I checked my blood type that is A, why is it different?
Hello Yuli, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
A person's blood type is determined based on the presence or absence of antigenic substances in red blood cells and blood plasma. Through the ABO system, blood groups are divided into 4 types, namely A, B, AB and O.
Blood type A, have antigen A on red blood cells Blood type B, have antigen B on red blood cells Blood type AB, have antigen A and B on red blood cell Blood type O, then you do not have antigen A or B on blood cells red. The blood type of the parent will determine the child's blood type. If the parent has blood types O and B, then the child will have blood type O or B. If there is a difference in the blood type between the child and the parent, then there may be errors in the blood type examination. parent or child. I suggest that you check your blood group and your parents' blood to the nearest health facility, because this is important to know before an unwanted emergency occurs.
