Where to Get Your Blood Typed
You may already have had your blood type taken, and have it on file somewhere.
- Red Cross: Anyone who has donated blood is given a Red Cross Card with their blood type.
- Hospital: Anyone who has had surgery usually has had their blood type placed in their hospital file.
- Birth Records: Infants are often typed at birth.
- Obstetrician: Women can obtain their blood type from their obstetricians.
- Military: Service members can get theirs from their military records or dog tags.
- College Biology: Students often have theirs taken in their science classes.
- Online Typing Kits: Several vendors offer home blood typing kits for sale online. These are done by simple finger-prick.
If you do not know your blood type, your health care provider can identify it with a simple inexpensive test.
You can also purchase a blood type kit at many health food stores.
If you are blood type A or AB, and cannot determine your A1-A2 sub-type immediately, then use the A2 diet if you are intolerant of wheat or gluten.
Otherwise use the type A1 diet.
