Hi all.

I am an ethnic Pole (born in North America) and I'm trying to find out my blood type group.

I have no clue how this translate to English, or how to write this properly in Polish so I apologize for that, but apparently
my blood type is " 0 Markinitus/Arkinatis" or something like this.

I'm trying to figure out whether I'm O+ or O-.

Anyone have a clue what that word means? Whether it means positive or negative?

I might have to order a blood type testing kit if I can't find out.
Thanks!

Where did you get this information? From a lab? I would just go ahead and have it typed at a lab or donate blood and they will type it for you.

Got this information from my parents, but both of them don't know whether I'm + or -.

I might just have to order a blood testing kit from the web, I just wanted to know if anyone
knew what that word "Markinatus" or something like that means.

Strange. I have no clue at all. I just read something on the internet that 0- is a very rare blood type and wanted to know

if I have it or not.

Markinitus/Arkinatis

It's not Polish, it kinda sounds like Greek.

Sounds like you have a document. Post a photo of it (you'll have to join first).

Just go to the doctor/donate blood instead of asking strangers on the forum FFS.

I have no idea what the words you are referring to mean, but the only way you will know for sure whether you are O+ or O- is to get your blood tested.

0- is a very rare blood type and wanted to know if I have it or not.

If you do have it, perhaps you should consider donating blood. O- is rare and in demand as it can be given to anyone.
An O- person can also only receive blood from another O- person.

@RubasznyRumcajs - I will do what I want. Thank you. :)

@Chemikiem - I most likely don't have 0- blood, I read that 0+ is the most common in most white/European countries.

Do you get paid for donating blood rare types of blood?

I don't have any documents, I wish I did. I'll be ordering a blood testing kit this week anyways. Only one way to find out.

The '-' or '+' in reference to blood type group means the presence of the Rh factor, well at least in Poland.

The A or B or AB or O (lack of A and B) is another set of factors, independent of the Rh.

Do you get paid for donating blood rare types of blood?

In the UK, blood donation is voluntary, but I have just found this article which says that in Russia, US, Germany and China, blood donors are paid, which surprised me. Whether or not you would receive more if blood type is rare I don't know.

People in these countries test positive for money-bound mind-borne viruses.

my blood type is " 0

In that case, you should consume large quantities of meat products which are the best for your group. People with type 0 thrive on meat.

My type is A and I thrive on meat-free diet based on fruit and vegetables, beans and legumes, and whole grains.
