Type of blood type associated with how much a person’s risk of heart disease and blood type O is called to be the most secure from heart attacks. It was revealed based on the results of a recent study conducted by students from the University Medical Center Groningen in the Netherlands.
Presentation of the results of these studies just conducted at the World Congress on heart failure on Tuesday (2/5/2017) ago, as reported by page Medical Daily.
Blood type other than O more at risk of heart attack and another heart disease, to experience death from this disease.
The results of this study were obtained from research and health observations as many as 771,123 volunteers who have various types of blood type, and 519,743 people who have blood type O.
In the first group consisting of various blood groups, the findings of patients with coronary heart disease are much higher than in the blood group O.
The owner of blood group A is generally higher in cholesterol levels, and the number of galectin-3 is also high. These are some of the things that trigger swelling and heart failure.
Researchers also assume that the differences in blood type and the risk of heart disease occurs because the proteins that function in blood clots are different.
“A more in-depth study is needed to identify the causes of increased risk of cardiovascular disease in people with non-O blood group,” said Tessa Kole, a researcher at the University Medical Center Groningen.
Not only heart disease, but non-O blood type is also more at risk of pancreatic cancer, according to Yale University study.
