Rh blood protein

Common Questions and Answers about Rh blood protein


Avatar f tn In the unlikely event mixing occurs, the Mother’s Rh negative blood would encounter the Rh protein from her Rh positive child’s blood and develop antibodies against it. This process is called “sensitization”. No harm can come to the baby the first time mixing occurs.
849762 tn?1288188348 Getting a RhoGAM or other Rh immune globulin shot is a precaution against a situation called Rh incompatibility, which could affect future pregnancies and cause hemolytic disease in the newborn. Rh factor is a protein that the majority of people carry in their blood. Roughly 85% of the population is Rh-positive, and Rh status is genetically determined.
1230912 tn?1273496370 ) So I guess my question is how many of you on the board have RH negative blood? Does being RH negative with MS have any cause/effect on the situation? Thank you all knowledgeable ones!
Avatar n tn , the term "Rh" refers to a particular protein, the Rh factor, that sits on the surface of red blood cells (the surfaces of all cells are dotted with some protein or another). About 85 percent of the population carries the Rh-factor protein on their cells. That makes them Rh-positive. Some folks, such as you, don’t have the protein and are Rh-negative.     Does it make any difference in your daily life? Not in the slightest.
Avatar f tn My baby has a heart beat of 143. But they haven't told me my blood type or what my Rh protein is should I be worried. Or should I take it as a sign things are fine. Or should I just be happy that my baby is healthy .
Avatar f tn If I'm o- blood type and my husband is also 0- will I still need the shot for pregnancy .Is it possible for 2 negative Rh factor blood types to have a baby with positive Rh .
Avatar n tn neurologist who just recently ran some blood test and one test came back that said he has high amounts of protein in his urine and they want him to have another test done called a plasma amino acid blood test. My question is I have a RH negative blood disorder and my son does not.....I am curious if this developmental issue could have been caused due to my blood disorder?

Avatar f tn The things that consistently show up as abnormal on my blood work are SED rate and c-reactive protein (both inflammation markers), vitamin D (always low), and some borderline abnormal thyroid stuff (slightly high TSH, low positive for thyroid antibodies). Do you have classic symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis? I know with RA the joints get really red and hot, and the joints start to erode, while Lyme arthritis tends to be less destructive.
971283 tn?1247771172 I'm convinced that the twice a day two scoops (55grms) of protein powder taxed my body and most likely pushed my uric acid levels off the charts causing gout symptoms. I was also eating a low cal, high protein , med. carbo diet... As I look back, the symptoms (pain, hands, wrists, feet) all started after about three Mo's of everyday use, when the pain started, I stopped the work outs of lifting and riding my bike (aerocics) but didn't stop the Powder.. untill about three weeks later.
3198629 tn?1367042023 If your blood has the protein, you're Rh positive — the most common Rh factor. If your blood lacks the protein, you're Rh negative. Although Rh factor doesn't affect your health, it can affect pregnancy. Your pregnancy needs special care if you're Rh negative and your baby's father is Rh positive. If you're pregnant, your health care provider will recommend an Rh factor test during your first prenatal visit.
Avatar f tn mlb1234 said it well.... rh is a protein. If your blood type is positive it means you were born with this protein. Most people are positive. If you were not born with the protein you have rh negative. 2 neg. should not be a problem b/c your baby would be neg. and your body doesn't see it as something foreign (b/c it is the same as you). If one of you have the protein and the other doesn't then there's a chance that the baby could have a different RH than you.
Avatar n tn One recessive A from mom and one recessive from dad. The positive and negative factor (RH factor) is a protein marker and is not connected with the blood type. Most likely the baby got recessive A's from both of you then a negative from the person who had the negative RH factor. Genetics is very intricit so you should really ask your doctor and hopefully he/she will back up what I just said. I studied biology, chemistry, and genetics in college. Hope that helps you out some.
Avatar f tn If u are rh positive you do not need the rhogam shot. Being rh negative means only that your blood is missing a protein that most people have. If u are positive and daddy is neg then baby could be either pos or neg but even if baby is neg and your blood does cross then nothing with happen because there is just an absence of the protein.
Avatar f tn If you are RH positive you have the protein on the surface of your blood cells if you are RH negative you don't. Most people are RH positive.
Avatar n tn Each of the four blood types is additionally classified according to the presence of another protein on the surface of red blood cells that indicates the Rh factor. If you carry this protein, you are Rh positive. If you don't carry the protein, you are Rh negative. Most people - about 85% - are Rh positive. But if a woman who is Rh negative and a man who is Rh positive conceive a baby, there is the potential for a baby to have a health problem.
Avatar f tn You mean Rh negative. This means your Blood doesn't contain the Rhythm protein. It has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with your Blood type.
Avatar f tn my first born girl has the exact same blood type that I do including the lack of rh protein coating her blood. I'm thinking this little girl will be the same.
Avatar f tn As far as I know it not the blood type but if your negative or postive. Negative means your rh-. You dont have a protein in your blood that postives do. The doctor told me the samething about a month ago and that wasn't good answer. So i researched it.rh- is not common and actually only 15% of the world have to deal with this. And the lady above is right and that's only if the baby's blood leaks into you and it's different from yours (rh+). If you get the shot your fine. Nothing will happen.
Avatar n tn its not blood blisters,its a blood vessel under the skin like your vein pops and then there is a bruise for about 2 days then it goes away
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
476246 tn?1418874514 The rhesus (Rh) factor is one of these blood groups. If you have the Rh factor in your blood cells, you're considered Rh positive. If you don't, you're Rh negative. There's nothing inherently wrong with being either Rh positive or Rh negative. But problems can arise when an Rh-negative woman is pregnant with an Rh-positive baby. During pregnancy, fetal cells cross the placental barrier and mix with the mother's cells.
Avatar n tn Anti-c antibody (little c antibody) A protein made by the immune system that binds to a molecule called the c antigen found on the surface of red blood cells. The c antigen is part of the Rhesus blood group system which consists of several antigens (D , E , e , c, C, ). The antibody hastens removal of the c antigen (and the foreign blood cells) from the body. Anti-c antibody is capable of crossing the placenta and causing anemia in the fetus and hemolytic disease of the newborn.
10389360 tn?1410827568 Maybe you were confused by the doctor's wording? Rh- does not refer to your actual blood type A, B, etc. But to a specific protein in your blood. I would definitely talk it over with your doctor as this is important information for you and baby.
Avatar f tn 019 Hemoglobin/Blood,Ur negative pH, Urine 6.5 Protein, Urine 30 Urobilinogen 2.
Avatar n tn Let me explain, Rh negative means your body is lacking a protein that most people already have (making them Rh positive). If your baby has Rh positive blood like most people (which means she got it from her daddy if he is Rh positive) and your blood mixes at any point, your body starts producing antibodies against the baby because it thinks your baby is a foreign object and must be destroyed just like it would attack a virus or bacteria.
