According to a study by scientists, people with blood type A or B have an 8% higher risk of heart attack and a 10% increased risk of heart failure compared to people with blood type A or B. blood type Oand the risk of pulmonary embolism and venous thrombosis was 47% higher.
Creeping through our body’s veins every second are small variations that help categorize our blood into groups: A+, A-, B+, B-, O-, O+, AB+ and AB-.
These small differences usually don’t matter until we need a blood transfusion or in people pregnant womenaccording to Cnet.
However, many studies are underway to show that blood group can determine many factors health than we think. Invisible differences in the blood can offer an advantage in preventing cardiovascular problems and can make other people more susceptible to disease.
Blood types affect the risk of cardiovascular disease
Blood groups with the highest risk of heart disease
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), people with blood type A, group B, or blood type AB are more likely to have a heart attack or heart failure higher than those with blood type O.
People with blood group A or B have an 8% increased risk of heart attack and a 10% increased risk of heart failure compared with blood group O. This risk is not high, but the difference in blood clotting rates is more. according to the AHA.
People with blood types A and B had a 51% higher risk of deep vein thrombosis and a 47% higher risk of developing a pulmonary embolism. These are serious blood clotting disorders that can also increase the risk of heart failure.
One reason for this increased risk may be related to inflammation that occurs in people with blood types A, B or AB, said Dr. Guggenheim, a hematologist at Penn Medicine. Type A and B blood proteins can cause “clogging” or “thickening” in veins and arteries, leading to an increased risk of blood clots and heart disease.
According to Mr. Guggenheim, it is also possible that for this reason, people with group O have a reduced risk of severe infection Covid-19. Because the Covid-19 virus can cause heart problems, blood clotting and other cardiovascular problems.

Other effects of blood type on health
People with blood type O have a lower risk of heart disease and blood clotting, but they may be more prone to bleeding or bleeding disorders. This may be especially true after childbirth, according to a study of postpartum blood loss that found an increased risk in women with type O blood.
According to a study published in the journal Critical Carepeople with blood type O may also experience more severe blood loss from trauma.
Other research has also found a higher risk of cognitive decline, such as difficulty with memory, in people with blood type AB than in those with blood type O.
According to experts, a healthy diet still determines your cardiovascular risk regardless of your blood type
