I have two sons, a 3-month-old and a 3-year-old and I would like to get them started on the right track with their diet before they get used to eating foods that are wrong for their blood type. My question is, is your blood type testing kit appropriate for small children and how is it done? I'm not a nurse and the idea of testing their blood myself makes me nervous. ANSWER
Lots of people have typed their families with the home test. It is very easy to do on a child. Unlike an adult you don't stick them on the finger, you stick them on the fat pad at the bottom of the heel of their foot. There are less nerve endings their so it doesn't hurt much, plus they can't see what you are doing if they're on their stomachs!
The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to
devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
