Rhesus Negative Blood

hello I am new here.I was born with Rhesus negative blood. I inherited from my parents.The GP keeps saying its type 2 diabetes. without looking any further I'm on insulin injection and victoza injections.along with tons of other meds for diabetes. my blood is rare for a white female but no -one will listen to me thinking i have mental issues because i become panicked when i try to say its in my blood its my DNA,i cant find the page to ask NHS for my archived medical records under my birth name what should i do ?

Blood Type probably doesn't affect the diagnosis of diabetes. Rhesus Negative blood is not so unusual - even for a white female.


No it’s not unusual I have rhesus negative and I know others too that have it and we are all white ??


Hi Kimberley1958

I think you are a little bit muddled in you understanding of what your blood group means in terms of your health. Your blood group is something that’s entirely different to the medical challenges you have.

If your GP seems not to be linking your type two diabetes to your blood group then it’s because there is no connection between the two things.

Type two diabetes generally happens because of our lifestyle choices, not our blood groups.

The really important thing to focus on is the advice your GP practice gives you about adjusting your lifestyle and nutrition to help you manage the diabetes. There is really no need to worry about old medical records or your blood group.


Do what I did - find a good recommended kinesiologist/nutritionist and learn to muscle test yourself for your food and whatever you ingest.

I am rhesus negative, too, but we are all different and no-one can tell anyone what to eat or how to 'be' because of our own uniqueness. I am very sensitive.

I sometimes need to eat like an 'A' blood group and sometimes like an 'O', but even then it is individual.

The kinesiologist found this out for me when I was seriously ill and she asked me to find out my parents' blood groups.

Mum was A- and Dad was O+. That is quite an odd combination and surely this affected me and my life.

We all lead different lifestyles and 'how much' we need is as important as 'what' we need regarding diet.

Staying off all processed food, additives and food lacking in nutrients was a good start for me, i.e eating whole food and organic where possible and now that is the way I live.

Without the muscle testing I would not be here, however, I know that much.

All the best with finding what is right for you and trust and listen to your body - You know it better than anyone - for you have lived with it since birth - no one else has.

My GP advised me to continue the way I am going and initially a gastro-enterologist suggested the same, when I was very ill and he was worried about giving me any more invasive, toxic and traumatic treatment.



I've just googled this and watched a you tube demo.

I must say, it doesn't look very credible and it is very time consuming.

I've worked within the NHS since 1976. (Recently retired). This is the first time I have ever heard of Kinesiology.

We all inherit our blood group from out parents. Nothing new there. As for eating a specific diet for each of the blood groups, I think it's a bit 'way out'. Feel like an O one day then an AB the next.

Kimberley 1958 would do well to listen to the very sensible reply given by Callendersgal.


We are all different and I have learnt from experience that being connected to your own body and how it changes all the time is a good way to stay well!
