Blood Type

Blood type tests are done primarily before a person gets a blood transfusion and to check a pregnant woman's blood type. Your blood type is also checked when donating blood. Human blood is typed by certain markers (called antigens) on the surface of red blood cells. Blood types are A, B, AB, and O.

This test accurately identifies your blood type. Blood typing is important to know when deciding to give blood or to make lifestyle changes as suggested in the book 'Eat Right 4 Your Type'.  Dr. D'Adamo suggests that the different blood types require different foods for a healthy digestion.  Unhealthy digestion can cause many dis-functions of the body.  Understanding which foods are good for you and which are bad, can mean a world of difference to your energy levels as well as overall health.
