Why Are Blood Types Different From Parents’ Blood Types?
mlam. I want to ask how come I am different from my parents, why isn’t it?
There are 4 blood types in the ABO system, namely blood types A, B, O, and AB. In addition there is a rhesus system which is characterized by rhesus (+) and rhesus (-). The blood type of the parent will determine the blood type of the child.
For example if parents have blood types B and AB, then their child has the possibility of blood type A, B, or AB.
Sometimes there are technical errors when checking blood type. If you are unsure about your blood type, you can try to do a repeat blood type test in the laboratory and consult the results with the doctor on duty.
Hope it helps you,
