There are many research findings that show that eating right for your blood type can help you maintain a long, healthy lifestyle. There are blood type diets that talk about the importance of eating right for your A,B, AB or O blood type with Rh factor.
Blood typing is determined by the type of antigens or markers that are on the surface of red blood cells (either "A" or "B") and if there are antibodies to a portion of the blood type known as the Rh factor (either "positive" or "negative"). Blood type is inherited from and dependent upon the blood type of an individual's parents.
In the case of a blood transfusion, your blood type needs to be compatible with the transfused blood or an allergic-type reaction can occur resulting from the immune system, in which the recipient blood cells attack the incompatible donor blood cells as invading organisms.
It is very important to know the Rh factor status when a woman is pregnant. If a pregnant woman is Rh negative and her baby is Rh positive, the mother's immune system can sometimes attack the baby's blood cells because of the differing blood types. Pregnant women should routinely have a blood typing test done to see if they are at risk.
