What is your blood type?

It might be interesting to see if blood type has a factor in having an autoimmune disease. Maybe positives have more of a chance to have it rather than negitives...?

I'm 0 positive

Hi Joleen,
without getting to complicated the Rhesus factor (or Rh) is the postive or negative part of the poll above. So you have your blood type then you are postive or negative of that blood type depending if you have a certain antigen in your blood.
(Some issues can come up in pregnancy if the mother is Rh negative an baby is positve.)

Susan,

Ive been doing the B diet for a couple months now working with a naturopathic doctor. The toughest part is the "diet" part - last thing I need is to lose more weight...

Feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions.

I know I am type O. Not sure if it is positive or neg. I remember my one doctor telling me the positive and negative does not really mean much though. I also have the eat right for your blood type book. Yes, type o's are suppose to have a more acidic diet in order for the body to function well, at least that is what they say. I have got to say that I do notice that when my urine gets too alkaline, my bladder starts to hurt. It is better when the urine is acidic. Not sure if that means anything though.

PS)...DIDN'T realize you could ever be in remission with Crohn's..my brother has had some years better/worse than other ones and can tell when he's about to get a STRICTURE by his pain level and fever and amount of loose stool able to come out..less obviously when they'res a stricture..I pray he gets in remission someday..he's going through a terrible time...so skinny.

I found this table online, telling you the percentage of general population with each blood type. So far I'm not seeing any significant variations in the blood type of people with IBD. Yes there are a lot of As and Os, but that's because they are the most common blood groups!

ABO Blood Group Percentage of Population with this Group
O + 37%
O - 7%
Total Blood Type O 44%
A + 35%
A - 7%
Total Blood Type A 42%
B + 8%
B - 2%
Total Blood Type B 10%
AB + 3%
AB - 1%
Total Blood Type AB 4%
Total Pos 83%
Total Neg 17%

It doesn't seem to have anything to do with blood type, those stats are what you would find in a non crohn group of people. Never read that crohn had anything to do with blood type.
