B Positive Blood Type Rare
Thanks for asking!: Type 'b positive' blood type means that the person's red blood cell surface contains both the b-antigen as well as the rhesus (rh) factor. About 8-10% of american population has b+ blood type. They can receive blood types of b+, b-, o+, and o-. Compatible recipients of b+ blood include those with b+ and ab+. ...Read more
Dominant: Positive is dominant over negative. You get one gene from each of your parents, so you are either --, -+, +-, or ++. Only in the case of -- will you have rh negative blood. With -+, +-, and ++, you will have rh positive blood. This makes rh positive blood the most common type of the two. This can be a problem with a baby: if mom is rh pos (+-), dad is rh neg (--), and baby is rh neg (--): attack! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes : Anyone donating blood will have their blood screened to confirm that they are negative before any blood products would be distributed. ...Read more
Blood type: Consists of blood group a, b, ab or o combined with rh factor positive or negative. Lacking this cell surface marker (rh negative), neg folks cannot take blood products from people who are rh positive, as your body will reject them, followed by blood group. Rh negative folks are not rare in number. They are simply more restricted, based on that neg factor, from whom they can receive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not possible: It is possible for the child to be rH negative if both parents are hybrid rH positive (one positive and one negative rH gene), but if they are both type O can only have type O children. Either one of them is not the biologic parent, or someone's blood typing is a mistake. Someone had to give that B gene. ...Read more
O neg and B neg: B neg would be best, o neg should also be safe. ...Read more
Antibody formation: At the first transfusion, nothing happens, but the person generally makes antibodies to Rh antigen and may have a transfusion reaction at the subsequent transfusion with Rh positive blood. If it is a woman of reproductive age and the baby is Rh positive, the baby may get hemolysis. ...Read more

Blood tests negative for celiac, hla gene positive, biopsy positive. Could there be another cause for mucosal flattening?
Unlikely: The blood test is of secondary importance. It depends on what test you had, for instance the immunoglobulin a antibody to tissue transglutaminase may be negative if one already avoids eating gluten. Also, it is not very sensitive. The definitive test is the biopsy (not the gene, which does only show the likelihood of developing the disease. You probably have celiac disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Newborn had positive Coombs test - i'm O positive and he's B positive. He didn't develop jaundice. How common is a positive Coombs test in newborns?
Common.: About 1 out of 3 pregnancies where the mother and child are ABO incompatible will be Coombs positive, but actual hemolytic disease of the newborn is rare. Only IgG type anti-A or anti-B cross the placenta, which most people don't express. Second the A and or B antigen is not heavily expressed on fetal cells. Also other cells besides RBCs express A and or B and "soak up" the antibodies. ...Read more
Can a blood group a positive mother and a blood group b positive father give birth to an o positive child?
Blood types: Yes. Blood type is determined by the presence or absence of genes encoding the a or b protein on the red blood cell surface. It only takes one copy of the a or b gene to generate the respective protein. So if the mother was ao and the father was bo they would have a 25% chance of an oo child. If either parent had two copies of the gene an o type would be impossible. ...Read more
