Wow, i have never heard of that. I think, I'll ask my doctor that on the next visit and see what his/her response is.

When I got pregnant, I asked my doctor what my blood type was (I am O, but I forget if it's + or not)
He told me "oh, if you want to know that, it's a seperate blood test."

I'm thinking to myself... I've had blood drawn here on several occasions, it must be somewhere.
But where I live, you are only allowed to discuss one health problem at a time. So if I wanted to know, I would have to wait and make another appointment.

I'm in the UK


Then you have an idiotic doctor.
Suprising really, they are usually quite lax. When I had bloods drawn late in my last pregnancy they left the notes lying about while the nurse went to get something so I had a jolly good nose. She never told me off for it.

I also have the lizard blood.

That is one of the stranger things I've heard. How long has this person been your doctor? I've had the same doctor since I was a young teen (at least 33 years) and he will discuss with me anything I wish to ask about my medical history. He even had one of his employees go into storage to find some of my ancient records when I asked what year I had broken my ankle in my teen years. It doesn't sound like your doctor is very "patient friendly".

But you have to give blood to get that information ?


You wouldn't know your blood type unless you gave a blood sample, stands to reason....

RH Negative is NOT a "Blood Type".

It is funny here in canada they only tell people if they are RH negative or positive as well, they do not volunteer actual blood type information.

It is quite odd that such an important piece of information has been made to seem not important by our current "health care systems".


So if it is not a blood type as you say, what is it then?

When they do normal blood test, sugar, cholesterol etc.. the tests are different, they will need to do extra steps to find out blood type(im not sure of the cost for them) but.. i never had trouble getting it because my family doctor has my profile.

I think i'm B negative.

What blood type is the best? A+?

I was told almost the same thing by my kids ped. I asked him and he said he couldn't tell me. I had to donate blood to see that I am O+. When you donate blood they give you a card other than that there is no way of getting the info here either.

If nurses can test your blood in the 15-30 mins of donating blood for free. I'm sure a doctor can do it just as easily.
Very strange if you ask me.

Glad to see I'm not the only one. I asked my doctor recently and the office receptionist told me they don't have record of it. I've had surgery before, so it must be somewhere on record. But the answer was no. I ordered a home kit to try and find out. Not sure if it was correct. Weird.

jahlv,

You are not the only one. I thought it was just my doctor, but after talking to my cousin who asked her doctor the same thing, her doctor gave her a very similar response to what my doctor said.

When I asked my doctor, he said, "why do you want to know your blood type." I said, "in case one day I have an emergency and need to know." He said, "the medical professionals will find out at that time. You don't need to know."

I thought it was so strange the refusal to run this test when they were drawing my blood already anyway. It seems like such a harmless thing to know. Then, after my cousin said the same thing, I'm feeling like it something shady is going on with that and must be something bigger to it and controlled by the government. For what reasons??? My curiosity caused this google search about on the topic, which brought me to your post. Strange stuff for sure!

I am 54, I have been asking my blood type for years. Doctors always asked that question first visit, first question.
I still dont know my blood type despite asking three doctors in four years.
I asked my Doctor to tell me my blood type today as she was writing orders for pathology. The doctor replied "ABSOLOUTLY NOT, there is no need for anyone to know their blood type anymore or even for a doctor to know". I should have asked the pathology nurse as I did at the last hospital I attended.
I dont understand it as a google search gives lots of reasons to know your blood type.
My family tree is leading down strange paths but that is silliness.

I am thinking it is a family connection as well. I was told "ABSOLOUTLY NOT" by my GP today.
I also seem to have a methusela thing going on too.

I live in the States. I have asked almost EVERY doctor I have had since I was a teenager my blood type. I have been flat out told No, or we don't test that...WTF? I asked about a year ago at Kaiser and my doctor said she would order the test. I was initially very excited to finally get my type. After numerous inquiries and about the results, I was told different excuses as to why the results weren't there. The only thing I do know is that I am RH negative. Sigh and so the mystery continues.....a reply to: jahlv

I think you can get a home test kit on ebay for like 2 bucks that does it. They have all kinds of home test kits now a days.
